Marking The Graves - Poem by Satish Verma

Remaining hawk

in voyage of tears, birthing

a poem.

If art of communicating was

via testosterone, why

did you land on water?

Mongrels were increasing,

dirtying the road.

Greif multiplies. Hate was ingrained

in faith. The arithmetic goes wrong.

Landscape stays. Moon moves on.

Why red roses were

dying in your land? Tell me

angel, tell me.

The rage insults me. Who

was perfect in the crowd?

Do I ask the god?

    Yeah, very difficult question to give answer. But somehow the life has to go on. The wheel of time must roll to take us to our destination. Very nice. (Report) Reply

    Each stanza is a poem. All graves. Metaphors come, and go. Too abstruse. (Report) Reply

    The rage insults me. Who
    Was perfect in the crowd
    Do I ask the god?

    A good stylistic embellishment
    Buried in the use of fine rhetoric questions.
    Well done!
