Married - Poem by Nikhil Parekh
When the tender skinned cub was innocuous and small; he played frivolously all day in his cage; sequestered from the ominous attack of vicious predators,
However when the same kid matured into the majestic lion; it was indispensable to leave him in the dense jungle.
When the buds were minuscule in size; they were kept in clusters in the contemporary vase; shielding them from the tenaciously blowing wind,
However when they blossomed into crimson flowers; proliferating at amazing speeds by the unveiling day; it was indispensable to let them spread on sprawling acres of farmland.
When the river was new oozing parsimonious rivulets of water intermittently; it inhabited the obscure regions between the valley,
However as torrential rain unrelentingly pelted down; the stream swelled astronomically in size; and it was now indispensable to blend the same with the colossal ocean.
When the fish were small; they were scrupulously kept in a grandiloquent tank;
impregnated with loads of coral and sea food,
However when they speedily augmented in size; it was indispensable to place them beside the preposterously huge whale.
When the eggs were pearly white with their shells wholesomely intact; the mothers sat on them incessantly harnessing them with their effeminate warmth,
However when they hatched out into slender beaked fledglings; it was indispensable to teach them the art of flying high in the sky.
When the pup was just born wailing incoherently in the air; it slept like an angel leaning against the belly of its mother,
However when it started frisking around the garden; it was indispensable to make him realize the importance of his bark.
When the venomous spider aimlessly loitered on the ground; it took shelter for many hours in cocoons of wet mud,
However the minute it had spun its web; it was indispensable for it to trap its prey;
before strangulating the same with its slimy juices.
When the honeybee just took its first breath; it buzzed inexorably against the eardrum of its queen mother,
However as it developed its wings rampantly flying in the air; it was indispensable for it to produce fresh honey.
When the child lay in its cradle he emulated the most impeccable form of life existing on this earth; effusively crying for milk and attention,
However when he grew up into a complete individual; it was indispensable for him to earn his own bread; exploring different arenas of the monotonous world.
And when two lovers witnessed each other; they were incorrigibly mesmerized by each others presence; romanced and languished in the aisles of desire,
However after a marathon period had elapsed; and their relationship had culminated into one of perpetual understanding; it was indispensable for them to get united into threads of holy matrimony; to eventually get married
