Sangeeta on his poetry: “I try not to preconceive what is or isn’t poetry, what is or isn’t a proper subject for a poem. I’m not a trained ‘wordsmith’ so I don’t try to fit my words into a proper preordained form. But, I do my best to remain expressively true to the rhythmic & melodic reality of each poem’s form as it is revealed in its unique given moment in time.”

“I seek clear strong language to express what I am thinking, feeling & intuiting about any given poem whether it is set in the starry cosmos or the muddy lowlands of our experience. I try to preserve the spontaneity, the sense of discovery that exists at the moment of conception. However, I have taken to heart Mark Twain’s comment: ‘The difference between the almost right word and the right word is the difference between a firefly and lightning.’ ”
