A frame 
lifts the skirt of a portrait 
and throws her genitalia 
on your face. 
A twin blast has taken place. 

Why did you stand for 
The fables will miss you 
and blue horse 
will not return home. 

The naked feet 
will roam on grass, when 
shoes will ask; 
what is the miracle? 
It happens once a while. 

Reified the colors into pink 
thighs – for every word, 
stood undressed. 
Now the table waits for you.

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. As aptly said by Lao Tzu, The one who speaks does not know, The one who knows does not speak, 5-Aii, Mayor Colony, Alwar Gate, Ajmer-305007 INDIA
