Shimmering

Satish Verma

The sizzling legs wait for 
an infinitesimal pause 
to learn on approaching zero. 

I am not cultish: 
the egg has walked out 
on a dwarf mother. 

The dead horse was rising 
after eating dirt. Naked 
flame will decide for – 

the rights of a man in a 
hot night. Deferred a perfect 
landing on cherries. The 

colors were fighting 
for the supremacy of 
twisted necks.

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
