science – shaz tamkanat

سائنس  –  شاذ  تمکنت

 

سبز گنجان گھنی جھاڑیوں کی چھائوں میں

پوٗ پھٹے کہر کی مہکار میں ساگر تٹ پر

جانے کیا کوکتی ہے کوئی اکیلی کوئل

جانے کیا سوچ رہا ہے یہ رسیلا منظر

ایک سناّٹا  ہے معمورہٗ احساس و جمال

خوف آتا ہے کے آواز نہ بن جائے کہیں

साइंस – शाज़ तम्कनत

 

सब्ज़ गुंजान घनी झाड़ियों की छाओं में

पौ फटे कोहर की महकार में सागर तट पर

जाने क्या कूकती है कोई अकेली कोयल

जाने क्या सोच रहा है ये रसीला मंज़र

एक सन्नाटा है मा’मूरा ए एहसास ओ जमाल

खौफ़ आता है के आवाज़ न बन जाए कहीं

In the shade of those verdant thick grove of trees, at the break of dawn in that fragrant mist, who knows what song that lone nightingale is singing, who knows what thoughts are behind this sweet scene. How mysterious is this world of beauty and feelings. I fear that rationality may end this enchantment.
