Poems by Durgesh Verma


Dedicating to my entire Poet friends
Though, my words’ expressions are
not so poetic.
I’m proceeding, little steps
to refine my confined thoughts.
Muses of my mind are made for
the sake of mankind.
My fingers are defining their destination
through keyboard snapshots.
Sometimes I travel
in the aroma of the violet shade of tales.
Sometimes my path is covered with
the imaginative crystals of frost.
Sometimes the wilderness
dislocates my destination.
Sometimes my immense courage finds
lost ways in the dirt of past.
Hindrance never stops me
to freely act.
Intentions of intense feelings are
my tacit pact.
Be a Poet
before becoming a man.
To Ignite rhythmic & peaceable tunes
like a Saint.
The Reverie
“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.”
