I would regard meanings
given by others so far
as refreshing boon,
I would still be enamored of rose
or any heartless flower's smell
if tender tides of your affection
had not suffused
the pollen of my heart
with loving aroma.
modulations of my song,
images of my poetry,
my life story,
all would be making
a tedious dumb run
with no destination
sans beauty like
sultry gusts of drought
that flow over leafless treetops

Writings[edit]

Suman Pokhrel is described as a poet with a strong tender voice.[5] Indian writer and critic Anuja Ghosh says, "Suman Pokhrel's poem Children creates tenderness in the mind. It is indescribable the way the poet has drawn out the innocence of children metaphorically with Nature. The rhetoric question at the end leaves an indelible mark in the minds of the reader. Where as in his poem You Are, as You Are, he exudes humility in expressing love. The importance of love quotient in one's life is spelled in this poem, a simple submission almost in the form of a ritual. There is an abundance of sublime purity in his expression of love."[74]

Love is a feeling, and its expression is an art. [75]
Suman Pokhrel

One of Suman Pokhrel's most quoted poems,[39][76] Every Morning emphatically declares the uncertainty of existence. It comes as a rude shock that how casually we take everything for granted. In a world which is filled with a plethora of violence, tragedy and devaluation of life the poet seeks gratitude for his being. His poem Every Morning is like a gentle reminder to mankind.[74]

His poem The Taj Mahal and My Love, is an innovative poem. The epitome of love creates awe in the mind of one and all, falls short to a lover who wants to give it all in this lifetime and not be delusional like Shah Jahan. The poet has penned down the poem with reverence to the greatness of the Taj Mahal.[77]
