Seeking Carefully

Satish Verma

Where do you stand― 
in the crowd, for the love of a cause― 
your feet cannot measure the ache 
of the earth, respecting the rhythm 
of a lone survivor. 

Can you believe in the fall of a titan? 

Stranded in accuracy 
for a salt lick for 
a zipless mouth wide open. 

what the flesh would not say. 

And I keep standing by the midriff to see the face.

Wonderfully written

What a beautiful poem, in depth and full of spirit.
