A Lotus blooms
on the sediment of memories.
An old man is the real owner
of those golden stories.

By remembering those glimpse
he goes past.

Where -
He laughs.
He weeps.
He plays.
He runs fast.

With each wrinkle
of upcoming waves of time.
We'll too reach there
with melodious rhyme.

But a soreness among inner peace
which we've felt.
A shiver silence
which can't be melt.

A gust of wind
changes the direction of our thought.
Though, the sensibilities among us exist.
Yet, our attitude of viewing the life is rot.

Here, I would like
to stop my muse.
Let's decide, which the path
you need to choose.

Till then, take care
of those soft petals red.
it may soon fade.____Durgesh Verma


I flow in the reverie and
collide with ashore.

I scatter in infinitive drops and
connecting myself for flow.

I vaporize myself
to touch the cosmic heights.
With a huge discharge of lighting
I create thundering clouds.

I'm from the womb
of mother Earth.

Who always convenes me
to come onto her lap.

I'm grateful to get her
great affection.

So, with the drops of rain
I come back to make her evergreen again.____Durgesh Verma


Preserve your past
and live in the present.
Believe in your presence
and never remain in absence.

Be alive in those moments
which make you laugh.
See the innocent nature
of a softy calf –

It shakes tail
to and fro.
At the time of drinking milk
from the mother- cow.

See the eagerness
of a baby chirp -
As it welcomes dawn
by flapping its wings.
The Moon appears

in the foggy night
by wearing the dress
of silvery white.
Twinkling stars
of surmise suddenly vanish.
We can hear morning prayers
in Hindi, English and Danish.

In the joy of filling nectar
in bee-hives.
I'm sowing flowering seeds
which can rise high in the sky.____Durgesh Verma
