Ek Darakht

By Nizah Fatima Ali

A tree was a little overgrown,

But it was very, very thick.

Fruits - flowers did not come on it now,

But he used to give shade to everyone as if he were someone of his own.

The scent was all around him, a wrath,

There was a river of calm, spread in the winds of this environment.

My lonely companion was that tree, that world,

I slept under it like a mother.

There was no tree in this world beyond the whole world.

There was something special about it, it seemed like heaven.

(ایک درخت )

ایک درخت

ایک درخت تھا کچھ بڑھا سا،

مگر تھا وہ بہت گھنا گھنا سا،،

پھل - پھول نہیں آتے تھے اب اس پر،

مگر چھایا دیتا تھا سب کو جیسے ہو کوئی اپنا سا،،

اس کے ارد گرد پھیلی ہوتی تھی مہک ایک غضب سی،

تھا اس ماحول کی ہواؤں میں پھیلا سکون ایک دریا سا،،

میری تنہائی کا ساتھی تھا وہ درخت وہ عالم،

میں سوتا تھا تلے اس کے ایسے جیسے ہو آنچل ماں سا،،

تھا ساری دنیا سے پرے وہ درخت لگتا ہی نہیں تھا اس دنیا کا،

تھا کچھ تو الگ کچھ خاص اس میں وہ لگتا تھا جنّت سا۔۔۔
