pari KhaanauN meN-maKhdoom

پری خانوں میں ۔ مخدوم محی الدین

 

وہ جو چھپ جاتے تھے کعبوں میں صنم خانوں میں

اُن کو لا لا کے بٹھایا گیا دیوانوں میں

 

فصلِ گُل ہوتی تھی کیا جشنِ جنوں ہوتا تھا

آج کچھ بھی نہیں ہوتا ہے گلستانوں میں

 

آج تو تلخیِ دوراں بھی بہت ہلکی ہے

گھول دو ہجر کی راتوں کو بھی پیمانوں میں

 

آج تک طنزِ محبّت کا اثر باقی ہے

قہقہے گونجتے پھرتے ہیں بیابانوں میں

 

وصل ہے اُن کی ادا، ہجر ہے اُن کا انداز

کون سا رنگ بھروں عشق کے افسانوں میں

 

شہر میں دھوم ہے اِک شعلہ نوا کی مخدوم

تذکرے رستوں میں، چرچے ہیں صنم خانوں میں

परी ख़ानों में – मख़्दूम मोहिउद्दीन

 

वो जो छुप जाते थे काबों में सनम ख़ानों में

उन को ला ला के बिठाया गया दीवानों में

 

फ़स्ल-ए गुल होती थी, एक जश्न-ए जुनूं होता था

आज कुछ भी नहीं होता है गुलिस्तानों में

 

आज तो तल्ख़ी-ए दौरां भी बहुत हल्की है

घोल दो हिज्र की रातौं को भी पैमानों में

 

आज तक तन्ज़-ए ,मोहब्बत का असर बाक़ी है

क़हक़हे गूंजते फिरते हैं बियाबानों में

 

वस्ल है उन की अदा, हिज्र है उन का अन्दाज़

कौन सा रंग भरूं इश्क़ के अफ़्सानों में

 

शहर में धूम है एक शोला नवा की मख़्दूम

तज़्केरे रास्तों में चर्चे हैं परी-ख़ानों में

During maKhdoom’s time the Communist Party of India had a major split. I am not sure if this is referring to that, but if it is ‘un-they’ could be the splittist group. Their apparent style is one of togetherness but their real nature is separation. I don’t know what colour to paint my story. Of course, ‘un’ can be the beloved and this becomes a romantic she’r.
