Akhiri Padaav

Yesterday afternoon a fleeting verse paid a visit to the confines of my mind and this afternoon while dozing off, I tried to finish the Ghazal, which I’m presenting for you all. Hopefully, this won’t be as hard to understand as “Khudkushi Ke Baad“. The vocabulary is fairly simple. Comments/criticism are both welcome. I also recorded a rushed recording.

    Feels good to be amongst your poetic output once again. Been quite some time though.
    Always remember, it is the darkest before dawn.

    Right on Dhar sahab, but I’m content with this month with Khudkushi sequel and this Ghazal.

    accha sonch likha aur kaha hai………
    lekin aakhiri safar ko itna kamzor kyu…mehsoos kiya hai …

    humey to yeh yaad aa raha hai…

    khudi ko kar itna buland
    ki khuda bandhey se aakar yeh
    poochey ki bata teri raza kya hai ….

    let only love and truth prevail…

    Kamzoriyat nahi sukhanfahami ki baat ho rahi hai Anita ji if you carefully read the Maqta 🙂
