I’m in search of that milieu,

I’m in search of that milieu, locale and setting

looking for that sunrise, night and that evening

the sky adorned with stars, the unseen moon

simply I’m  searching for a glimpse of a moon

those warm moment, sight and that evening

I’ve been in search of that alley since long eon

for  an instant  casts a look at  me suddenly

I’m searching those wet  eyes looking down

recklessly I meander often looking for you

looking for the home where I get peace

restive breathing, all around turbulence

looking for set where I could get patience

We engraved our names in childhood

I’m looking for the same tree in woods


وہ شہر ،وہ قریہ، وہ نگر ڈھونڈ رہی ہوں

وہ شام،وہ شب، اور وہ سحر ڈھونڈ رہی ہوں

تاروں سے بھرا عرش،قمر آنکھ سے اوجھل

بس ایک نظر مثلِ شرر ڈھونڈ رہی ہوں

وہ شامِ ،وہ گوشہ، وہ حسیں ساعتِ اُلفت

اک عمر سے وہ راہگزر ڈھونڈ رہی ہوں

بے ساختہ اُٹھ جائے نظر جو مری جانب

جھک جائے جوپھر اشک میں تر ڈھونڈ رہی ہوں

بے وجہ بھٹکتی ہوں تری آس میں اکثر

ملتا ہے سکوں جس میں وہ گھر ڈھونڈ رہی ہوں

انفاس میں اک حشر ہے، محشر کا سماں ہے

کس جا ہو دعاؤں میں اثر ڈھونڈ رہی ہوں

بچپن میں جہاں نام تھا ہم دونوں نے لکھا

جنگل میں وہی ایک شجر ڈھونڈ رہی ہوں

رضیہ سبحان

amazing and fascinating lines…


Thank you mihrank dear, wishing you peace and harmony in life amen.


جنگل میں وہی ایک شجر ڈھونڈ رہی ہوں

This line just pierced through the heart.. Such a poignant lament. Oh in the shadow of the heart’s woods, that tree must still be standing — awaiting and longing, to see those two smiling lips, one more time.. The bark must be old and dry, but the memories still fresh — damp like the clay balls churning in the chest.

This is one of the most eloquent and touching poems I have read in recent times. Thank you so much for sharing the beauty of your ink with the world. Tashakor!


Silent fingers, Thanks a lot dear. You made my day ❤ I'm humbled. Wishing you peace

The pleasure was absolutely mine. On the contrary, you made my ‘Fajr’, Tanveer apa. What a way to begin the day with such ‘warm and breathing’ poetry. So Thank You actually!
