Treasure Island

Nikhil Parekh

(27/08/1977 / Dehradun, India)

love


There were various sounds in this world which you
didn't like; one of them was the sound of the
discordantly wailing eunuch,
There were various truths in this world which you
didn't like; one of them was the inevitable arrival of
death,
There were various places in this world which you
didn't like; one of them was the island of ghastly
hell,
There were various things in this world which you
didn't like; one of them was starvation to
unprecedented limits,
There were various heights in this world which you
didn't like; one of them was the abnormally long
height of the dinosaur,
There were various situations in this world which you
didn't like; one of them was the arrival of
devastating earthquake,
There were various delays in this world which you
didn't like; one of them was waiting at a
claustrophobic traffic signal,
There were various liquid's in this world which you
didn't like; one of them was the venom oozing from
tail of the scorpion,
There were various words in this world which you
didn't
like; one of them was a phrase that abused your
mother,
There were various speeds in this world which you
didn't like; one of them was that of sinking sand,
There were various holes in this world which you
didn't
like; one of them was the burrow which lead to the
red ants,
There were various clouds in this world which you
didn't like; one of them was the blackest of them all;
engulfing blissful territories of this earth with
overwhelming flood water,
There were various colors in this world which you
didn't like; one of them was the appalling color of
cold blood,
There were various birds in this world which you
didn't
like; one of them was the savagely croaking vulture,
There were various dreams in this world which you
didn't like; one of them was the perception of a
loudly laughing devil,
There were various waters in this world which you
didn't like; one of them was a sea laden with a
million sharks,
There were various tree's in this world which you
didn't like; one of them was an ugly cactus embedded
with a battalion of pugnacious thorns,
There were various animals in this world which you
didn't like; one of them was the menacing alligator,
And inspite of all this there was only one thing in
this world; which I am definitely sure that all of you
liked; and for those of you who didn't I really pity;
for the thing I am talking about was infact the very
first reason that made you read all the lines in
harmony till this line; O! yes what I am about to
convey;
is already at the top of your minds; for it is none
other than LOVE

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
