There Were Times - Poem by Nikhil Parekh

There were times when the breeze didn't need air to
flow; gush in torrential fervor towards the handsome

There were times when the rose didn't need fragrance
to blossom; transit into the most unprecedented realms
of voluptuous desire,

There were times when the tongue didn't need words to
speak; express its emotions as vociferously as a new
born child,

There were times when the fish didn't need water to
swim; ebulliently bounce and gallivant in the full
fervor of existence,

There were times when the lips didn't need a smile to
be happy; exult in the grandeur of the mesmerizing
beauty; lingering on this Universe all around,

There were times when the eyes didn't have to close to
dream; fantasize beyond the boundaries of infinite

There were times when the church didn't need bells to
ring; poignantly express the irrefutably divinely
consent of the Almighty lord,

There were times when evening didn't need the Sun to
set; metamorphose into overwhelmingly seductive and
transient dusk; before the onset of perpetual night,

There were times when the birds didn't need wings to
fly; soar astronomically high in vivacious bits of
fabulously blue sky,
There were times when the palms didn't need lines to
be destined; live the most incredulously wonderful
existence that could ever be conceived on this earth,

There were times when the throat didn't need sound to
communicate; reach the individual boundless kilometers
away in lightening fractions of seconds,

There were times when the body didn't need muscle to
fight; conquer the most invincible of heights with the
stupendously majestic ease of a crown prince,

There were times when the storm didn't need
thunderbolts of white electricity; to incarcerate the
soil in its mystically enigmatic swirl,

There were times when the matchstick didn't need
flames to burn; escalate the most unsurpassable limits
of the cosmos; where no entity had ever tread,

There were times when the diamonds didn't need
stringent light to shine; glisten gorgeously to
unleash infernos of insatiable passion,

There were times when the veins didn't need blood to
survive; trigger insurmountable compassion and an
unequalled ardor to lead life,

There were times when the snow didn't need heat to
melt; evolve into a spring of profoundly enchanting
froth; blessing countless with its heavenly charm,

There were times when the nostrils didn't need air to
live; exist beyond the boundaries of inevitably
unfurling fate,

And there were times when the heart didn't need a
voice to proclaim; dedicate its passionately
palpitating flurry of fervent beats to the person it
loved; the person it wanted to incarcerate for
fathomless more births to come.
