Advisement – a poem by Sanjeev Sethi


The barrenness spurs me to scratch a glim of His grace. 
This cloudiness is quieter than crevices my calm dwells
in: propinquity inspires new lines and natty stanzas. 

Every footpad has a back story: like him, we’re innocent 
of our chapters in the cosmic omnibus. Someone else is 
in queue: this is the core of continuity.

Sanjeev Sethi has authored seven books of poetry. His latest is Wrappings in Bespoke (The Hedgehog Poetry Press, UK, August 2022). He has been published in over thirty countries. His poems have found a home in more than 400 journals, anthologies, and online literary venues. He is the recipient of the Ethos Literary Award 2022. He is the joint-winner of Full Fat Collection Competition-Deux, organized by The Hedgehog Poetry Press, UK. He lives in Mumbai, India.
