Treasure Island

Nikhil Parekh

(27/08/1977 / Dehradun, India)

there were times

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.

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
