(Bang-e-Dra-112) Motor

Motor
The Motor Car

Kaisi Pate Ki Baat Jugandar Ne Kal Kahi
Motor Hai Zulfiqar Ali Khan Ka Kya Khamosh

How rightly Jogender said this yesterday
“The car of Zulfiqar ‘Ali Khan is so quiet

Hangama Afreen Nahin Iss Ka Kharaam-e-Naaz
Manind-e-Barq Taez, Misal-e-Hawa Khamosh

Its elegant and graceful pace is not noisy
Fast like lightning, like breeze it is quiet”

Mein Ne Kaha, Nahin Hai Ye Motor Pe Munhasir
Hai Jadah-e-Hayat Mein Har Taez Pa Khamosh

I replied “This is not restricted to car
In the path of life every fleet footed is quiet

Hai Pa Shakista Shewa-e-Faryad Se Jaras
Nikhat Ka Karwan Hai Misal-e-Sehba Khamosh

The bell is footless from its habit of lamenting
The caravan of fragrance like zephyr is quiet

Meena Madaam Sourish-e-Qulqul Se Pa Ba Gil
Lekin Mazaj-e-Jaam-e-Kharaam Ashna Khamosh

The decanter always walks on embers due to gurgling
But the nature of the gentle‐moving wine‐cup is quiet

Shayar Ke Fikr Ko Par Parwaz Khamashi
Sarmayadar-e-Garmi-e-Awaz Khamoshi

To the poet’s thoughts the wings for flight are silence
The wealth of the voice’s warmth lies in silence”!
