Oh this stormy night and heavy rain,

Rumbling wind, ogling lighting and rain

Darkness prevail all sides and all around

Stillness swallowed up life’s bustle all around,

The clouds floating and hovering in the sky

Trees and leaves sway below my window pane


آہ! یہ بارانی رات

مینہ، ہوا، طوفان، رقص، صاعقات

شش جہت پر تیرگی امڈی ہوئ

ایک سناٹے میں گم بزم گاہ حادثات

آسماں پر بادلوں کے قافلے یڑتے ہوئے

اور مری کھڑکی کے نیچے کانپتے پیڑوں کی بات



We are living on an island, having

Unfathomable Ocean on three sides,

And a dense forest on its fourth side,

None came back who went to seek its base!

The trees found here are bare with no leaves,

The fruit that grow on them are as big as heads,

All the birds on this island are voiceless,

Miseries   like wriggling dreams, keep us alive

For the forthcoming days and trial

Seeing a sailing boat from far-off,

We scream in excitement waving hands

And quietly lay down with the setting sun

The stars sing unheard songs to our women

They vanish like one more world with rising sun

It’s all like a dream for us, hidden unknown!

Contented we were with little food

And bodies adorned with leaves

Who discovered the reason of our bareness?

No one would ever know,

 If our children never asked

Every night, we make a boat in dream

That sails smoothly on water far away

And die away like dream with the rising sun


Like a view from a passing van’s pane

He met me, but like a running mass!

I’m a drifter like the wind on roadways

He waits too, but silent like a pine tree

Don’t see the buzz of the bazaar with my eyes

Township will look bleak like a house

The same sense of agony as of   in prison

Come home daily as coming to office

Term returned to print grief on leaves

Sunlight is piercing eyes like a dagger;
