Life is Beautiful

poem by Nikhil Parekh (2004)

Life is Beautiful

every minute unleashing all day is a beautiful minute

getting you acclimatized with the pace of life

every flower protruding from soil is a beautiful flower

spreading its mesmerizing scent deeply into your nostrils

every face smiling in the universe is a beautiful bird,

overwhelming your ears with its melodious sounds

every mountain towering towards the sky is a beautiful mountain,

appeasing your eyes with its picturesque landsacapes

every root of grass projecting from the jungle is a beautiful root,

tingling your senses, making you exotically dream

every hand that serves philanthropically is a beautiful hand,

propagating an egalitarian spirit in whosoever it caresses

every stream that flows through land is a beautiful stream,

pacifying the thirst of several scorched in vicinity

every eye that views goodness in this world is a beautiful eye,

sharing empathy with millions of bereaved lying around

every cloud in the sky is a beautiful cloud; showering droplets of europhoric

rain on earth; shielding it from acerbic rays of the sun

every language spoken is a beautiful language; assisting a person to convey his innermost feelings

every mirror embedded on the walls is a beautiful mirror;

portraying to you, your candid reflection

every color that circumvents your visage is a beautiful color;

symbolizing the oneness of human race

every voice that emanates from the throat is a beautiful voice;

explicity expressing a person's needs and desires

every mind impregnated within the skull is a beautiful mind; having the unfathomable

ability to achieve the impossible

every foot that walks innocently is a beautiful foot;

leaving behind a trail of holistic footprints

every leaf that extrudes from the tree is a beautiful leaf;

entrenching the dull, with shades of everlasting green

every mother having delivered a child is a beautiful mother;

continuing the wonderful process of evolution

every heart imprisoned inside the chest is a beautiful heart;

passionately throbbing when struck by an ensemble of emotions

and every entity trespassing through the surface of this earth is a beautiful entity;

making the globe a beautiful place to live in; giving rise to the famous and immortal adage;

which proudly proclaims that ..

life is beautiful.
