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


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 


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.
