Painting  and the Painter

Tasveer-o-Musawwar
 
Tasveer
Kaha Tasveer ne Tasweer gar se
Numaish hai tere hunar
 
Wa lekin kis qaddar na munsafi hai
Ke tu poshida ho meri nazar se
Musawwar 
Garan hai chasm e bina didah wer par
Jahan beeni se kya guzri sharar par
 
Nazar dard o gham o souz o tab o taab
Tu ae nadan qana’at kar khabar par
 
Tasveer
 
Khabar aqal o kirad ki natawani
Nazar dil ki hayat javeani 
 
Nahi hai is zamane ki taq o taaz
Sazawar e hadees e lan taram 
 
Musawwar
 
Tu hai mara kamalat e hunar se
Na ho naumeed apne naqsh gar se
 
Mara didar ki hai ek yehi sharat 
Ke tu pinhan na ho apni nazar se
English 
Painting
 
Said the portrait to its painter
My manifestation attests to thine unbounded skill
 
And yet what a violation of justice it is that
You should remain hid from my sight
 
 
The Painter
 
The vision endowed to those that observe find it oppressive
See for yourself how the spark burnt itself out when it saw the world
 
What aught is sight but sadness gloom feverishness and self torment
Rest or you ignorant upon report
 
Painting
 
What aught is report but the impotennce of ratiocination and wisdom
Vision is the eternal springtide of life
 
The hustle and the bustle of the present age does not prmit one
To express oneself melodiously
 
 
The Painter
 
The do exist because the perfection of my art
Don’t then feel cast out in disappointment with him that has draw 
 
I only put one condition if you wish to see me
Never disappear from thine own sight
