Treasure Island

Nikhil Parekh

(27/08/1977 / Dehradun, India)

can there exist


Can there exist rain without smoke grey clouds in the
cosmos,
can there exist desert without quintals of slippery
sand,
can there exist flower shrub without variegated petals
of color,
can there exist winter without mercury dipping below
freezing,
can there exist pure ivory without elephant trampling
through forest,
can there exist a cigarette without bitter leaves of
venom tobacco,
can there exist taste without minute buds flowering on
fleshy tongue,
can there exist a boat without oars firmly riveted to
the sides,
can there exist incessant wind without circular
revolutions of the motored
fan,
can there exist gold without tinges of passionate
yellow,
can there exist white pearls without symmetrically
carved oyster shell,
can there exist cinema halls without palatial expanse
of the silver screen,
can there exist a perfect morning without melodious
chirping of the cuckoo,
can there exist salt without sea water splashing on
the chain of mighty coal
rock,
can there exist blood without pores of flesh being
punctured,
can there exist thick lava without collisions in
interior crevices of earth,
can there exist a lock without a key kissing
articulate junctions of
proximity,
can there exist finger nail coat without surplus
fillings of powdered
calcium,
can there exist mountain rivers without mass of water
tumbling down at speed,
can there exist a church without Jesus nailed to
sandalwood cross,
can there exist breath without nostrils containing
sticky mucus,
can there exist a computer without a host of
programmed microchips,
can there exist aquatic fish without an ambience of
luke warm water,
can there exist an aircraft in space without a pair of
steel wings,
can there exist life without consumption of portable
water,
can there exist man on earth without traces of love he
thoroughly deserves.

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
piano;
