Poem Poetic Drama Drama Ghazal Short Stories Novel
कहाँ तो तय था एक कण्ठ विषपायी और मसीहा मर गया साये में धूप मन के कोण छोटे-छोटे सवाल
कैसे मंजर आँगन में एक वृक्ष
खंडहर बचे हुए हैं दुहरी जिंदगी
जो शहतीर है
ज़िंदगानी का कोई मकसद
मुक्तक
आज सड़कों पर लिखे हैं
मत कहो, आकाश में
धूप के पाँव
गुच्छे भर अमलतास
सूर्य का स्वागत
आवाजों के घेरे
जलते हुए वन का वसन्त
आज सड़कों पर
आग जलती रहे
एक आशीर्वाद
आग जलनी चाहिए
मापदण्ड बदलो
कहीं पे धूप की चादर
बाढ़ की संभावनाएँ
इस नदी की धार में koi awaaz honi chahiye kon kehta hai aasman me
हो गई है पीर पर्वत-सी

तू किसी रेल सी गुज़रती है
