A Killing

Buried at sea
the dead man lives, as if a blood
in a reliquary.

Remains of a day
were very volatile.The backlash
will start with a kiss of moon.

By the lack of a sin
you meet an ambush
lying in wait.

The severed hand will
hold the sunrise.
Who will write the epitaph?

A stunning breast, over your
reflection, the red rains
come for celebration.

Satish Verma's picture

Pitted against the forces bigger than him Satish Verma has been fighting with life on his own terms. In this savage, violent and raging times, he has authored several collections of poetry in English and Hindi, in concrete and precise verses, analyzing the complex nature of man, history and ancient heritage of Homo sapiens. And standing at crossroads he is asking where do we go from here. His poetry communicates a beautiful, mystical mind exploring the images of nature, trying to find the meaning of the life and death, the ecstasy of talking to moon, flowers and wind in the kingdom of god. He wants to know cannot we live in peace?, Satish Verma addresses the most complex questions of philosophy, religion and political culture in a very subtle but virtual shocking manner.
