Some Urdu Sad Poetry

Some Urdu Sad Poetry:

A couple of amazing pieces of Urdu Sad Poetry are in our post today. We use designed poetry to give our readers a unique and more beautiful look to the poetry. First piece of Urdu Sad Poetry is a Ghazal. In this ghazal the poet talks about the loneliness and the pitilessness of the one he thinks about.

Main jo mehka to meri shakh jala di us nay,
sabz mosam main mujhay zard hawa di us nay,

pehly ik lamhy ki zanjeer main bandha mujh ko,
or phir waqt ki raftar barha di us nay,

janta tha k mujhay mot sakoo’n bakhshay gi,
woh sitamgar tha so jeenay ki dua di us nay,

Us kay honay say thin sansain meri dugni shayad,
Woh jo bichra to meri umr ghata di us nay,

Translation of last 2 shairs of Urdu Sad Poetry above:

Knew that death would calm me,
he/she was inexorable, prayed for my life,

being with him/her my life was doubled, perhaps,
when he/she left, decreased was my lifetime,

Urdu Nazm:

The second sharing in the Urdu Poetry is a very touching Urdu Nazm. Lets read it in the Roman Urdu.

Suno logo meri ankhain khareedo gay?
Mujhay ik khwab ka tawaan bharna ha,
Ek esa khwab tha,,
Jo keh jagti ankhoun ne dekha tha,,
baray hi chao say,,,
our kitny armanoun se dekha tha,,
Magar dekhay huay us khwab ki tabeer ulti ha,
nahin shikwa kisi say apni hi taqdeer ulti ha,
jo ab tak ho chuka mujh ko, whi nuksan bharna ha,
Ab ankhain baich kar hi khwab ka tawan bharna ha,

The designed Urdu Poetry version of the above poetry makes this Urdu Poetry more touchy and deep.

Urdu Nazm poetry

There is another version of this poem “suno loo meri ankhain kharido gy” which is as follows:

Suno logo meri ankhain kharedo gy?
bohat majboor halat main muje nilam karni hain,,
koi muj se naqad ly ly,,
main thoray dam lay lon ga,,,,
jo pehli boli day de bas usi k nam kar dun ga,,
muje bazar walay keh rehe hain kam aqal tajir,,
aray sunsan logo,,,
main nehain hun hirs ka kha,han,,
nafa nuksan ki shatranj nehan main khelne aaya,,
koi muj ko kehe na manchala sa be hunar tajir,,,
bata paon tuje kese or kis tashweesh main rakhon,,
suno logo,,,
bari mehbobtar hain muj ko meri neem tar ankhain,
magar ab bechata hun k ……!
muje ik khawab ka tawan bharna hai,

Both of the versions are equally beautiful i would like to say that the second version of this Urdu Nazm is more balanced. Hope you liked all Urdu Poetry. Please leave a response!

Urdu Poetry | Urdu Nazm

Usually many kinds of Urdu Poems are known as Urdu Nazms. Urdu Nazm is such a type of Urdu Poetry which does not require to have rhyming words in the end of each couplet the length of the couplets, these are characteristics of Urdu Ghazals.

The theme of today’s Urdu Nazm is “I miss you“, The Poet very emotionally reminding all the letters, long emails, chatting, exchange of gifts that have been done between them and all the promises.On the Peak point of this Urdu Nazm the poet says “chalo dil pe chataan rah kar gulistaan e muhabbat ko, khud barbaad karty hain”…

Agar tark e ta’aluk hi wafaoun ka taqaza ha,
khushi say bhool jao tum,
wo shab dhalay ki khamoshi main meray nam likhay khat,
Taveel e-mails, wo shairoun say, phooloun say laday sab card,
meray mobile per wo jagmagaty pyar k qissay,
wo khushbu bat ki yadain, wo mehki rat ki batain,
Adhooray sab fasanay or adhoori sab mulaqatain,
tumhain meri ijazat ha,
bhula do saray qadoun ko, bhula do sari yadoun ko,
Jala do meri sab nazmain,
lota do pyar k tohfay,
Qalam jis per tumhara nam chaandi se likhaya tha,
wo tie jo galay ka haar ban k rehti thi aksar,
Kitabain…. Jo tumhari khwab gah ki ab bhi zeenat hain,
wo Cd jo tumhari gari main ab bhi amanat ha,
Romaloun per tumhara nam ham ne khud hi garha tha,
agar tark e ta’aluk hi wafaoun ka taqaza ha,
suno phir aaj hi is be mehr sa’at k saye main,
har ik shart e wafa se ham tumhain aazad karty hain,
K khud hi Qatl hoty hain, khud bedaad karty hain,
chalo dil pe chataan rakh kar,
gulistaan e muhabbat ko,
khud barbaad karty hain,
tumhara nam tak lety nahi tanhaiyoun main ham,
magar is dil ki dharkan ko bana kar raz dan apna,
tumhain ham yad karty hain,

Sad Poetry | Even the rain Ghazal

Sad Poetry | Even the rain

Sad Poetry is by Agha Shahid Ali who was born in India in 1949.

Sad poem Ghazal

What will suffice for a true-love knot? Even the rain?
But he has bought grief’s lottery, bought even the rain.

“our glosses / wanting in this world” “Can you remember?”
Anyone! “when we thought / the poets taught” even the rain?

After we died–That was it!–God left us in the dark.
And as we forgot the dark, we forgot even the rain.

Drought was over. Where was I? Drinks were on the house.
For mixers, my love, you’d poured–what?–even the rain.

Of this pear-shaped orange’s perfumed twist, I will say:
Extract Vermouth from the bergamot, even the rain.

How did the Enemy love you–with earth? air? and fire?
He held just one thing back till he got even: the rain.

This is God’s site for a new house of executions?
You swear by the Bible, Despot, even the rain?

After the bones–those flowers–this was found in the urn:
The lost river, ashes from the ghat, even the rain.

What was I to prophesy if not the end of the world?
A salt pillar for the lonely lot, even the rain.

How the air raged, desperate, streaming the earth with flames–
to help burn down my house, Fire sought even the rain.

He would raze the mountains, he would level the waves,
he would, to smooth his epic plot, even the rain.

New York belongs at daybreak to only me, just me–
to make this claim Memory’s brought even the rain.

They’ve found the knife that killed you, but whose prints are these?
No one has such small hands, Shahid, not even the rain.

Romantic Urdu Ghazals

Romantic Urdu Ghazals:

A Ghazal can be described as a poetic type containing rhyming lines along with an abstain, that includes every couplet expressing that identical meter. Any Ghazal could possibly be perceived being a lyrical concept with both of them a painfulness of great loss or perhaps broken relationships in addition to the elegance about love regardless of that trouble. This form of Urdu Poetry is longstanding, beginning within sixth century Arabic passage. It’s extracted out of an Arabian panegyric qasida. The particular structural standards for the ghazal are usually comparable in stringency to most with a Petrarchan sonnet. Within it’s pattern as well as content material it is just a type that has already proven able of the remarkable range with reflection close to it’s main ideas of love and also separating. Its just one from the primary types that the actual Perso-Arabic civilizations provided to the eastern side Islamic culture.

A Ghazal passed on in to South Asia from the twelfth century within the control of the modern Islamic Sultanate legal courts as well as Sufi mystics. Even though a ghazal is actually generally conspicuously the type of Dari poetry and Urdu poetry, these days it really is observed with the poetry among numerous languages of sub-continent.

Abhi is taraf na nigaah kar, main Ghazal ki palkain sanwaar loon,
Mera lafz lafz ho aayena, tujhay aayenay main utaar loon,

Main tamam din ka thaka hua, tu tamam shab ka jaga hua,
Zara theher ja isi morr per, teray sath sham guzaar loon,

Agar aasmaan ki numayeshoon main mujhay bhi Izn e qayaam ho,
To main motiyoon ki dokaan say teri baliyan teray haar loon,

Kahin or baant day shuhratain, kahin or bakhsh day izzatain,
Meray paas ha mera aayena main kabhi na ghard o ghubaar loon,

Kai ajnabi teri chah main meray paas say yoon guzar gaey,
Jinhain daikh kar ye tarap hui, tera nam lay k pukaar loon,

Lovely romantic ghazal by Bashir Badar

This Romantic Urdu Ghazal by Dr. Bashir Badr is beautiful and very imaginative. The poet describes the beauty of their lover. Lovely concepts enhance this Romantic Urdu Ghazal

Another Romantic Urdu Ghazal

This Romantic Ghazal is suggested by a friend. Very deep couplets of the Ghazal makes it unique.

Koi Ghazal suna kar kya karna,
yoon bat barha kar kya karna,

tum meray thy tum meray ho,
dunya ko bata kar kya karna,

Tum Ehed nibhao chahat sey,
koi rasm nibha kar kya karna,

tum khafa bhi achay lagty ho,
phir tum ko Mana kar kya karna,

teray dar pe aa kar baithy hain,
ab ghar b jaa kar kya karna,

Din yad sey acha guzray ga,
phir tum ko bhula kar kya karna…

Koi ghazal suna kar kya karna

Urdu Nazm | Bakht kya Chand sa

Urdu Nazm | Bakht kya Chand sa Mila ham ko

Jab mila woh khafa mila ham ko,

bakht kya chand sa mila ham ko,

ghair to rehm dil nahi hoty,

yaar bhi kaj ada mila ham ko,

Chund rangeen tohmatoun kay siwa,

teri chahat se kya mila ham ko,

Ham ne ye raah chor di thi magar,

Tera darbaan aa mila ham ko,

Chara saazoun ka koi jurm nahi,

Dard hi ladwa mila ham ko,

Bakht kya chaand saa mila ham ko…

Jab mila woh khafa mila ham ko,

Sad Urdu Poetry
