Faces

Satish Verma

You go for a daily ritual 
to water a passion tree; 
for greasy palms of petals of 
lewd figures. 

Always had a goddess 
in young days, 
now you are trying to find an 
erogenous zone in searing heat. 

It ia not raining. The impact of 
instant romanticism. The past 
throws the virtue in vain. Terror 
had been benevolent. 

The beasts and flowers, endless 
friendship of strippers. The holes 
are widening in the sky asking 
for the blasts to go for ever.

ABOUT THE POET ~
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
