Flickering Dream

It was your 

at the time of ubiquitous pain 
of separation, you want to move the home 
away from home 

to terms with the trauma 
your shadow was not following you 

playing dead 
nuzzling the earth, racing to fill 
the void, entering the truthlessness 

this world 
of violence, of mayhem, of self-betrayal, 
the flags are not able to cover the nudity

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.
