Nikhil Parekh Poems
To Forget Her Was Impossible
The Sun may have forgotten to shine at times; leaving the Earth submerged in partial darkness,
The eyes may have forgotten to close; staring unrelentingly in the blazing fires,
The trees may have forgotten to shed their leaves; enticed to sway in the moist breeze,
The birds may have forgotten to chirp; thoroughly engrossed in building their nests,
The clouds may have forgotten to rain; drifting away submissively with the wind,
The lion may have forgotten to roar; lost in the aisles of desire and sleep,
The chameleon may have forgotten to change ...
When I Thought
When i thought about filth and dirt,
unethical images of floating sewage blended with feces capsized my mental imagery.
when i thought about transparently luring crystal water,
panoramic visions of undulating mountains besieged me in entirety.
when i thought about finely crushed chowder of piquant salt,
rambunctious memories of the sea flooded desolate regions of my soul.
