Blurring of words 
takes place. Lead the light, O Sun; 
non-path travelers are playing 
an exotic game 
in defiance and in delirium 
of schizo-affective mind. 

Fruits were fudging the flowers. 
The parents. Walking alone, 
watching the abasement of a 
young pilgrim seeking the belief 
of walls. The moon wears a death-cap. 
It was the return of silky climax. 

Do not move. Do not speak. Listen 
to voice of stillness. World is becoming 
proxy-keeper. The surrogates 
were releasing the facts.

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.
