I do not know whether I am breaking any rule in writing this but what the hell.. Kaifi ji will appreciate that young people are also reading him and propagating it. I am re-starting my blog with this. The reason is simple. This gazal will make people think. They will try to figure out who it is and what is going on with me. Some how I am always intrigued by this. They will ask me questions and I will enjoy this. So here goes nothing.
Bas ek jhijhak hai yahi haal-e-dil sunane mein
Ki tera zikr bhi aayega is fasane mein.
Baras padi thi jo rukh se nakab uthane mein
Vo chandni hai abhi tak garibkhane mein.
Usi mein ishq ki kismat badal bhi sakti thi
Jo waqt beet gaya mujhko aazmane mein.
Ye keh ke toot gaya shaakhe-gul se aakhri phool
Ab aur der hai kitni bahar aane mein..
