Best Poem of Seshendra Sharma

The Burning Sun

I am the drop of sweat, I am the sun
Rising from the hills of human sinews
Hearts are my friends
I live in the city of sufferings
Although in my fist, I hold an ocean of history
I sculptured man silently
Wings that carried birds
Did not bring them back
I am drinking thick darkness
In the haunts of those forests
Which cry out in agony for the birds
That did not return
Clutching at the garment woven of memories
I twine myself to the feet of my country
Heads that were hanging to the trees
Smile as flowers today in the branches
Hearts that received...

A Poem: In Delphi (1987)

Here the sea is caught in the mountains
and the wind in the olives
the bird suspended in the sky of joy
for a moment, like eternity

Here where the gods walk on the hills
with their mighty legs set like
temple columns
we tracked our way my friends, into the myth
