Nikhil Parekh - Indian Poet

I sowed a cluster of poignant seeds in the soil; digging a 


trench conducive in depth, 


Diligently watered the mud at the onset of every dawn; and in brilliant sunshine; 


sprinkling the enclosure with salubrious manure, 


After a few years the tree grew tall and handsome; and showered upon me


succulent fruits; free of cost.


 


I provided it tones of green leaf; kept a festoon of immaculate coconut in its


vicinity, 


Obliterated it from acerbic rays of the sun; and sweltering heat; providing it  


an island of hay to sleep, 


In return the rustic cow bestowed upon me gallons of frosty milk; free of cost.


 


I manoeuvred the canvas at astronomical heights in the sky; dexterously


plucking at its nimble string, 


Violently tugging the same; when confronted with swashbuckling draughts 


of breeze, 


In return the kite swayed phlegmatically in the air; gave me gargantuan gratification; free of cost.


 


Several of my ancestors fought gruesome battles in their lives, 


Audaciously massacring prevalent evil; clashing swords to drive away the obnoxious enemy, 


In return they left me marathon years of perpetual bliss and freedom to live; free of cost.


 


I used portable water parsimoniously in winter; preserving every droplet that


I could, 


Educated the society about the indispensable need to store and relinquish 


wastage, 


In return when the tyranny of summer took its acrimonious toll; I received colossal amounts of water; free of cost.


 


I procured a battalion of children; playing with them for incessant 


hours of the day, 


Incorporating their persona with the essence of humanity; teaching them to


march straight without leaning their weight, 


In return when they transited to youth; their philanthropic deeds spread far


and wide; and they bestowed upon me the pride of being their father; free of cost.


 


I built mammoth sanatoriums for those afflicted with disastrous pain, 


Assisted the blind; crippled; and the impoverished to cross the street; doing the best I could within my affordable means, 


In return I got the benevolent and unprejudiced blessings of the same; free of cost.


 


I lived the entire of my life intensely loving the girl of my dreams, 


Devoting Herculean amount of time towards those in tribulation; unrelentingly


attempting to fulfill my earthly tasks, 


In return when I relinquished life and breath; the Creator gave me a place in blissful heaven; free of cost.
