SELF-WATCH

Satish Verma

Have not crossed the street 
in many years 
to greet you. 

A slice of moon 
leaves footprints in blood. 
Maintaining the perfection 
you start giving names to trees. 

Paraplegia: 
you start dismanteling the life 
in search of romance with death 
for immersing the dreams. 

Take hold of my arms 
I want to invent your portrait 
in sands of nocturne. 

Drink the milk of silence. 
It is dark, but soothing. 
Go to sleep.

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
