A Poem by Khaaki

"

On the canvas of life,

If painted with passion,

Marvels never fade...

Beneath these trifles is buried,

A life of wonders...

Look beyond these carnal curtains,

Let your sight wander infinite...


The world is but a storyteller...

A single grain of sand,

Is engraved with fables,

With tales of sandstorms,

Trails of deluded caravans,

Of frail dusty travelers...


Is not the moon?

A mirror to the sun’s radiance...

Are not the tides?

A figment of the moon’s fury...


Every step taken,

Stamps on a footprint,

On stories drifting into oblivion,

Watch your step,

Hold your heart,

Mine is scattered all around...

~ allow me... (can't be pure urdu so please forgive me for my hindustani which includes hindi...)

zindagi ke aasmaan par
motiyon ke mohar hain
vo haseen lamhein
jo halki-phulki baaton
se pare hain
dekhna ho
toh havas ke pardon
ko hata kar dekho
un tamaam lamhon ko dekho
jo khoobsoorti ka suboot hain

duniya kahaaniyaan sunati hai
ret ke har ek kann mein
sadiyon ke kisse hain
toofanon ke charche
caravanon ke silsile
thake musafiron
ke gumraah khayaal

aur kyun nahin

kya chand ki chandni
suraj ki roshni nahin ?
kya samundar ki lehren
chand ka gussa nahin ?

har kadam
ki pehchaan
uska nishaan hai
apni kahaani sunati
ek gumshuda parchhain hai

zara phook-phook kar kadam rakhna
dil thaam kar rehna

main toh bhikhar chuka hoon

~ stunning poetry, haseeb... soulful beyond measure... heartbreaking too... beautifully written... am thrilled to see you post again... thank you for this amazing surprise...
