raat kee dastak daravaaze par hai
aaj kaa din bhee beet gayaa hai
kitanaa thaa ujaalaa phir bhee phir se
andhiyaaraa hee jeet gayaa hai
ekaant kee chaadar oḌh kar phir se
main khud men khoyaa jaataa hoo(n)
aa(n)khon ke saamane yaadon ke rath par
meraa hee ateet gayaa hai
sannaaTon ke gunjan men dabakar
apanee hee aavaaz naheen aatee mujhako
aa(n)khon kee sarahad par laḌataa
aa(n)soo bhee ab jeet gayaa hai
TooTe darpaN ke saamane baiThakar
main svayan ko khoj rahaa hoo(n)
yoo(n) hee baiThe baiThe jaane
kitanaa arasaa beet gayaa hai ... ..

'Geet Koyee Kasamasaataa'
Anita Nihalani


neel nabh ke paar koee
mand svar men gunagunaataa,
rooh kee gaharaaiyon men
geet koee kasamasaataa!

nirjharon saa kab bahegaa
sang Khushaboo ke uḌegaa,
jangalon kaa maun neerav
baarishon kee dhun bharegaa!

'Suprabhaat'
Prabhakar Shukla


nayan kaa nayan se, naman ho rahaa hai
lo uShaa kaa aagaman ho rahaa hai
parat par parat, chaandanee kaT rahee hai
tabhee to nishaa kaa, gaman ho rahaa hai
kShitij par abhee bhee hain, alasaaye sapane
palak khol kar bhee, shayan ho rahaa hai
jharokhon se praachee kee pahalee kiraN kaa
lahar se pratham aachaman ho rahaa hai
hain nahalaa raheen, har kalee ko tuShaaren
lagan poorv kitanaa jatan ho rahaa hai
vahee shaakh par pakShiyon kaa hai kalarav
prabhaateesaa lekin, sahan ho rahaa hai
baḌhee jaa rahee jis tarah se aruNimaa
hai lagataa kaheen par havan ho rahaa hai
madhur mukt aabhaa, sugandhit pavan hai
naye din kaa kaisaa sRjan ho rahaa hai.
