Treasure Island

Nikhil Parekh

(27/08/1977 / Dehradun, India)

you and i


YOU AND I were as inseparable; as the calcium coated nail and its slender finger,
You and I were as inseparable; as the fleshy eyelid and its transparent eyeball,
You and I were as inseparable; as nostrils and their moist waves of breath,
You and I were as inseparable; as a conglomerate of entwined roots and their rustic tree stalk,
You and I were as inseparable; as perpetually pearly moon and its shine,
You and I were as inseparable; as the chamber of mouth and its crimson complexioned tongue,
You and I were as inseparable; as a person traversing the streets and his magnified shadow,
You and I were as inseparable; as the blossoming rose and its mesmerizing redolence,
You and I were as inseparable; as the colossal expanse of blue sky and its cotton wool of clouds,
You and I were as inseparable; as mammoth ocean waters and their dangerously swirling waves,
You and I were as inseparable; as the ominous looking panther and his thunderous growl,
You and I were as inseparable; as the vivaciously chirping bird and its pair of tender wings,
You and I were as inseparable; as the crusty bar of chocolate and its lingering sweetness,
You and I were as inseparable; as the fiery body of sun and its infinite numbers of dazzling rays,
You and I were as inseparable; as the robust mountain sheep and its tufts of furry skin,
You and I were as inseparable; as the celestial fairy and the unfathomable beauty circumventing her face,
You and I were as inseparable; as the candle and its incessantly burning flame,
You and I were as inseparable; as the loving mother and her newly born child,
You and I were as inseparable; as the venomous snake and its stream of lethal poison,
And you and I were as inseparable; as the omnipresent almighty; and his lakhs of disciples; residing in different quarters of earth.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
