The twisting winding flowing lagoon
The twisting winding flowing lagoon
On mountains snow curving lagoon
Snow curving akin to arms of lagoon
Spreading its arms is flowing lagoon
The twisting winding flowing lagoon
The twisting curving flowing lagoon
Flowing flanking and roaring lagoon
Thriving noisy and melodious lagoon
Pounding shingles and curvy lagoon
The twisting winding flowing lagoon

Shadows will endure behind when you leave
Some signs of splendor sustain when you leave
Met you here on the coastline of this lagoon
When recollect, I’ll feel you here by this lagoon
Remembrance never fades nor does ambiance
How faraway you, you’ll find self by this lagoon
Thy body’s fragrance will spellbind the ambiance
Thy thick black hair will signify the dark clouds
Flowers will borrow crimson color of thy mouth
Thy loveliness will forever enhance the ambiance
Don’t think in this lively pulsating striking valley
Thou are not simply a timely breathing essence
Like my fortune you are destined here for ever
Thou are part of this striking amazing ambiance
Shadows will endure behind when you leave
Some signs of splendor sustain when you leave

تم چلی جائو گی، پرچھائیاں رہ جائیں گی
کچھ نہ کچھ حسن کی رعنائیاں رہ جائیں گی
تم تو اس جھیل کے ساحل پہ ملی ہو مجھ سے
جب بھی دیکھوں گا یہیں مجھ کو نظر آئو گی
یاد مٹتی ہے نہ منظر کوئی مٹ سکتا ہے
دور جاکر بھی تم اپنے کو یہیں پائو گی

کھلکے رہ جائیگی جھونکوں میں بدن کی خوشبو
زلف کا عکس گھٹائوں میں رہیگا صدیوں
پھول چپکے سے چرا لیں گے لبوں کی سرخی
یہ جواں حسن فضائوں میں رہے گا صدیوں

اس دھڑکتی ہوئی شاداب وحسیں وادی میں
یہ نہ سمجھو کہ ذرا دیر کا قصہ ہو تم
اب ہمیشہ کے لیے میرے مقدر کی طرح
ان نظاروں کے مقدر کا بھی حصہ ہو تم

تم چلی جائوگی پرچھائیاں رہ جائیں گی!
کچھ نہ کچھ حسن کی رعنائیاں رہ جائیں گی


Seems as lived in  eyes’ lagoon

I blossomed like a lily in the lagoon

Can’t deem beautiful ambiance

Seems as wide awake in the dream

My snappy glances at her seem

Like am learning to see to deem

She’s the one who has ambiance

I’m a deprived soul in the heavens

 Meeting her is a peculiar meeting

Seems like embraced fragrance

Do love him the way I adore you

If ever find a one similar to me

I now accept as factual, that Sahar

As I’m detached from my own self



One day at dawn break Titu was going in search of water with his parents and family friends. Titu’s mother kept an eagle’s eye on him, since he was a playful baby. But Titu always tried to escape from his mother’s stern look. He saw his mother tête-à-tête something with his dad, Titu cleverly moved away. After a while his mother looked around for Titu and found him hiding behind thick bushes pounding stones. She grunted and thumped him with her tusks.

Titu got pleasure with his mother’s protective concern and affection. He cuddled in his mom’s tender trunk.

     The site where they went the last time had insufficient water to quench thirst and meet the need of water for all. So Titus’s father directed to proceed towards the northern part of the valley to look for water. So they started towards north.  They kept moving forward till midday and stopped near a lagoon to beat the heat and rest. All the elephants showered and decided to stay a while before going any further. His mother was taking a nap too so Titu took the chance and moved away quietly.   

He enjoyed wandering alone as a cloud. Titu stepped in the lagoon. He played and splashed water with his trunk. The twittering and hopping of birds and croaking of frogs were an enjoyment for Titu.

After some time he got bored, so he got out of the lagoon and followed wild rabbits, squirrels and lizards.

The twilight swiftly wrapping the whole scenario in darkness worried Titu. He didn’t know that he had come very far from the place where they stopped for rest near the lagoon. Titu got scared. He looked around for his mother.

He bawled for his mom desperately. Mama —–moa —-o mama but there was no mama to be seen anywhere around.

Titu longed for his mother’s warm thumps. He missed his mother’s intimacy. He wailed but in vain.

Grief-stricken Titu tried to think of the next move when all of a sudden he heard a loud hissing roar and tremors under his feet. He was stunned to see a long black anaconda with broad stripes winding in the woods. He got scared to death. His had heard that anacondas can gulp down baby elephants as a morsel! The sounds started to get closer, threatening Titu like hell. As it grew closer Titu saw a huge black fast moving monster. It whistled and smoked too. Titu closed his eyes with full belief that he will be swallowed in a while. The noise lessened. Titu slowly opened his eyes to find himself in the anaconda’s stomach. But to his surprise he was standing at the same spot. He opened his eyes in relief and looked down to see his feet but shuddered with fear again for the anaconda lay still in front of him. He could never think of anything but to run. He wildly ran towards the forest to hide him before the anaconda awoke and swallowed him. While running he heard a familiar voice from the distance. He stopped to look back. He could easily recognize her voice among thousands.

Aunt Fox was calling him. Aunt Fox used to visit Titus’s family once a fortnight or so. Aunt Fox was a friend of all animals. She went to every nook and corner and shared the rumors and news with all. The animals enjoyed her wittiness and information and waited anxiously for her visits. The baby animals especially waited for aunt fox to hear her stories about foreign animals and lands.

When she saw Titu running madly she called and asked him the reason for running and also inquired about his family. Her voice seemed soothing like rain in a desert. Titu shed tears and something choked in his throat so he could not utter a sound. He wanted to hide in aunt fox’s bosom but she yelled and asked him to keep away as he was so huge. His embrace could crush aunt fox’s ribs. Though he was a baby, he was still an elephant and it was difficult to take him in lap or embrace him.

She knew Titu was a naughty and carefree child of her friend Pomi the elephant. Titu only wept but failed to tell her the story of his thrilling run away.


The moon shines in darkness of night,
Making the swirls on the brim of lagoon

A lamp is lighted among the winds tonight
Let’s see how long it continues to flicker

No point to fear the robbers as today
One looted, others crushed within home

It was half-done chitchat not done
In mist of mind’s eye, someone drone

What if heart string start to thump?
Who detains the mind’s realm?

On rim of light, just by dawn
Sight of last star goes down
