His poetry is known for its great imagery, clear diction, solemn expression and scintillating narration, often laced with fun, pun and satire. Mahathi being a strong protagonist of classical poetic forms of Elizabethan era, naturally his verses have the sublimity of classical accent and flow with lyrical grace. A few of his book reviews, forewords to books of other authors and a couple of articles in prose were also published.

Sathya Narayana Poems
slowly submerging is the weary Sun
with reddened face
bidding grudging adieus
raped a lame and naive woman!
The earth didn't crack! !
Visuals on heart-easel
Tight lips too can speak
In eloquence expressive silence
Smoke pipes are sprouting
Far and wide like iron saplings
Spiking through her tender flesh
In communal riots
But he forgot it!
Dawn due drops
Strewn on meadow like pearls
Sewed on green sari
Spit wild on Earth
