There was no colour in the nude 
and skin deep fire was raging 
not leaving much of a trail. 

A Janus cat, 
that is our man of polity 
with two faces. 

Walking alone at midnight, 
that is larger than life, on 
death of a galaxy, where - 

the crack of dawn meets 
dandelion to decide the course 
of bloody day. They were - 

coming in huge lots to kneel 
and kiss the hands of their master, 
who will leave his signature - 

in deep cleavage. Who was 
guarding the doorway to 
my sleep?

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.
