O night! Have you seen rising of moon

In the vales far and beyond the lagoons

How hidden issue unveil furtively at night

Who slowly descends in this vale at night

Who asked to confine fragrance——

Who can clasp fragrance touching my heart

There’re clouds, breeze and spring on the way

Caravans off to alter threshold, on the way

On the deserted pathways of city of murkiness

Silence of natural emotions in this gloominess

Enduring constantly with a feeling of loneliness

Every tip toe making restive in his remembrance

Darkness and stillness of city of night is like

A human being’s wandering in search of you

Parting away from one’s deity is simply like

A diminishing star searching for its deity 

Raat k shehr bata tu ne kabhi dekha hy

Chand charhty hoye jheelon se paray wadi mein

Kaisy khultay hn ye israar akaile shab k

Kon dheeraj se uter ata hy is basti mein

kon kehta hy k khushbo pe bithado pehray

Ye jo khushbo k dye jati hy dastak Dil per

Dayrahi hy ye khaber raah me hy aber e baahar

Qaflay phir chaly aye hn dar e maqtal per

Raat k sheher ki weeran guzar gahon per

Fitrat angaiz fizaaon mein khamoshi k ye pal

Sahay jaty hn fqat ek hi ehsas lye

Lamha lamha kisi ahat k guman mein bekal

Raat k shahar ki khamoshi udasi k talay

Ek bhatka howa insan tujhy dhondta hy

Apny ma’abud se bicher janay k gham mein aksr

Doobtay taray ki manind pochta hy …

Thinking of thee—Love!

What is love——-?
To be lost in the ocean of chances
To neglect all for your soggy eyes;
Sometimes go and share with stars
About heart’s feelings or flowers,
Either squander silently all day
or be asleep in a meaningless way;
At times shed tears, at times veil them,
I evoke all, being lost on the way at dusk
What is love—–?
Poison, energizer, shadow, may be
Shadow, which often shadowed me;
Compels me to speak his language
Forget self, and choose crazy way;
What is love—-?
Be faithful to words, sip death’s poison,
Pat thy heart’s string with pure simplicity
What is love—-?
Maybe to locate him on the tracks,
Worship again, whom cast off before;
Just feel often, that we have left
Far behind, the destiny of madness;
Broken the bond amid flora and fauna,
Through clouds Love will shower again
Linking green shoot erupts in heart again;
Will feel free of your promising assurance,
Love will again return to your soggy eyes

محبت سوچتے رہنا

محبت کیا ہےـــ شاید بحرِامکاں میں فنا ہونا
تمھاری چشمِ تر کے سامنے سب کچھ بھلا دینا
کبھی تاروں سے جا کے حالِ دل،حالِ چمن کہنا
کبھی چپ چاپ دن کرنا،یونہی چپ چاپ سو جانا
کبھی آنسو بہا لینا،کبھی اشکوں کو پی لینا
مجھے سب یاد ہے وہ دن ڈھلےرستوں میں کھو جانا

محبت کیا ہےــ شاید زہر ہے،امرت ہے،سایا ہے
وہ سایاجو مری ہستی پے اکثر لوٹ آیا ہے
مجھے مجبور کرتا ہے کہ میں اس کی زباں بولوں
بھلادوں خود کواور دیوانگی کی راہ کو چن لوں
میں لفظوں کی امیں بن کر قضا کے زہر کو پی لوں
مجسم سادگی بن کر تمھارے تارِدل چھو لوں

محبت کیاہےـــ شاید راستوں پر ڈھونڈنا اس کو
جسے ٹھکرا دیا پھر جزبِ دل سے پوجنا اس کو
محبت سادگی سے سوچتے رہنا یہی اکثرـ ـ ـ!
کہ ہم منزل جنوں کی اور پیچھے چھوڑ آئےہیں
گل و بلبل سے رشتہ تھا،وہ رشتہ توڑ آئےہیں
محبت بادلوں کے ساتھ پھر یکدم ہی چھائے گی
ہری کونپل سے باہم ہو کے دل میں پھوٹ آئے گی
تمھارے سب قوی دعوؤں سے سنگت چھوٹ جائے گی
محبت پھر تمھاری چشمِ تر میں لوٹ آئے گی

Keep your aims as high as the blue sky

Do keep your feet firmly on ground

We never know when to pass away

Thus keep your luggage light weight

It’s very dark; beware of wise eyes

If you meet soul mate on path of life

Keep close also detachments of life

He will in no way come back to you

Though keep the lamps of hope alive

If you wish to surrender before him

Keep spirit of captivating him lively

Destination is far, the path is tricky

Carry precious memories with you

Kept you safe hidden in my heart

Keep it safe like pearl in a sea shell


Ambiance of December is enjoyable
It’s just like smoothly flowing water
It is dwelling in my heart and soul
It breathes in me unconsciously
You are my enthusiasm dear one
I am so convinced of it dear one
Do cheer me  up my dear one
or promise me if thou parting
So that I rejoice in solitude to meet
To rejoice in thinking of you to meet
I will always remember December
It will make me upset in December


Is it a firefly, a dew drop, a star or is it you

Seems a hope, a ray, we see in murkiness

Is it a fallacy or a prank of our providence?

We believe our prayers are being rewarded



On the misty   dewy smile

Have written lonesome night

 I have skillfulness in my hands

My heart is fond of insanity

Colors spreading out on snow

Like evening glimmer on veil

The sky wakes from slumber

Lonesome night grins anywhere

 In far and wide spreading valley

Is, but dreamy forlorn loneliness

And in this sleepy forest somewhere

Your remembrance has gently crept 

Shaista Farrukh Mufti’s poetry

This time I decided to translate one piece of poetry from Shaista Mufti’s first book.

A door opens in village akin to fairies
On the way lies a blooming forest
Under the shade of pine trees

That path where Laila awaiting still
Mustard blossoms in the colorful milieu

Old birch tree is occupied by nymphs
Swings are void in cool alluring breeze

Mine and yours love story famed in the world
Have heard Heer Ranjha’s stories in myth ballet

The childhood that beam in heart in secret
May well abscond it in the secluded space

Here’s the original poetry:

اک دروازہ کھلتا ہے پریوں جیسے گاؤں میں
راہ میں مدھ بن پڑتا ہے اونچے چیڑ کی، چھاؤں میں

وہ پگڈنڈی جس پر لیلیٰ اب تک رستہ دیکھتی ہے
اب تک سرسوں پھول رہی ہےاُن رنگین فضاؤں میں

بوڑھے برگد پر اب تک آسیب بسیرا کرتا ہے
جھولے سونے سونے ہیں ساون کی مست فضاؤں

تیرے میرے دل کی کہانی دنیا میں مشہور رہی
رانجھا ہیر کے قصے سنتے آءے رقص کتھاؤں میں

وہ بچپن جو اب تک دل میں چھپ چھپ کر مسکا تا ہے
سوچتے ہیں چھوڑ آئیں ُاسکو دور دراز خلاؤں میں
