Dastak by Gulzar sb.
Subah subah ik khvab ki dastak par darvaza khula’ dekha
Sarhad ke us paar se kuchh mehman aae hain
Ankhon se manus the saare
Chehre saare sune sunae
Paanv dhue, haath dhulae
Angan men aasan lagvae
Aur tannur pe makki ke kuchh mote mote rot pakae
Potli men mehman mire
Pichhle salon ki faslon ka gud laae the
Aankh khuli to dekha ghar men koi nahin tha
Haath laga kar dekha to tannur abhi tak bujha nahin tha
Aur honton par mithe gud ka zaiqa ab tak chipak raha tha
Khvab tha shayad!
Khvab hi hoga!!
Sarhad par kal raat, suna hai chali, thi goli
Sarhad par kal raat, suna hai
Kuchh khvabon ka khuun hua thaa,
