A Vagabond and A Wizard

When a wandering wizard, chanced upon the Random Paths of a vagabond, thoughts overlapped. For, the wizard could work upon the wheel of words and the vagabond spoke through potent images. Did life stand still when the two exchanged their first greetings? We don't think so, for both joined in a quest of wielding images and powerful thoughts. This blog is a portrait of such efforts...

Recall

recall

The more I recall
The more it pains
The gushing winds
The falling leaves
The parting soul
The visible darkness
The lovely shadow
Still remains...
Words would never fill the gap
Tears would never call him back
Sighs would moan the moments-
Perhaps, lost in the ocean of love.

Very powerful words completely encompassed in the artwork... love your post, especially the words, 'Tears would never call him back'. Interesting that your post would follow mine.

Beautiful. You two are quite a wonderful duo. The words and the picture go together perfectly and the result is masterful.

ritesh said...

That moist n forlorn eye amidst the lightning-struck clouds....the crows epitomizing solitude...it's an image that speaks volumes. But the magically woven words coming from ur yarn lends a divine touch and a larger-than-life aura. The poem blends beautifully with the sublime image...and together they tug at the heart evoking some long-lost nostalgia....

@ reflections

I call it coincidence at your post preceded mine, I call it destiny...that I could still keep on writing and I call it sheer luck that I came across such a masterpiece (the image).

wanderer said...

@ moondustwriter

it was my pleasure to stop by one spot...loving the brilliant work you all are doing out there. and thanx a lot for dropping by and sharing your thoughts about the post...hope to see more of you in the coming days.

wanderer said...

@ jidhu jose

indeed the words hardly stand a chance without the powerful image...they do compliment each other, don't they....?

wanderer said...

@ steve

honestly speaking, It was monsoon that came to my mind, the season of love and passion and also the season that brings utter sorrow when one is undergoing a acute sense of separation from one's loved one. you did have a new angle to look at the image and the words that followed it...thanx my friend.

wanderer said...

@ brian miller

wanderer said...

@ magic eye

subtlety at its best---you speak volumes in just few words...nice of you to drop in sir.

wanderer said...

@ maria R.

wanderer said...

dustus said...

Like how the second half of the poem breaks with the structure of the first half—adds a dramatic effect.

Nice colors all through ...

"Sighs would moan the moments-
Perhaps, lost in the ocean of love"

Powerful words with the image of two parting birds in different directions.

Deepak said...

She looked at the sea
Too far she couldn't see
Clouds obscured the horizon
Silver lining defied the pattern

Winds were stochastic
Birds chirped frantic
Sky darkened to blue
But her eyes searched for you

She hoped the clouds could wait
Her prayer was the only bait
With moist eyes she held her pain
She wanted you home and inevitable was the rain

Then came you to delight her eyes
Smile on her lips and her mother sighs

Titli said...

Tres bien, tres magnifique, mon amie.

Very moving... specially the 'falling' leaves, the 'parting' soul,the 'darkness',the 'shadow'the 'gap', the tears and the 'ocean'.... living testimony of a fathomless entity...emotions from the depth of a pain-stricken soul.... lovely imagery....keep it up :)

Sumit Sarkar said...

Wow...this is such a beautiful poem...
Great work...
Thank you for visiting my blog :)

pr910 said...

the desolation omnipresent in both the picture and the verse are starkly visible...are complementary in fact.

Marinela Reka said...

Beautiful words and the art.. loved it :)

marousia said...

Thank youy for visiting my blog and I enjoyed the verse you left in response to my poem. I thought I would respond in kind. Your poem is beautiful:

Loops
gaps
absences
traces of tears
bitter sweet reveries
here and now
longing
doomed
never to catch
moments past

Ajay Patil said...

take care,
Arundhati

Very strong imagerie, sounds & rhythm...

Lakshmipriya said...

Two birds parting ways in the fork of their lives...in a vividly hued journey. The picture sparks a lot of thoughts. Very provocative.

I think this speaks to the importance of relishing each moment we have with those we love, as it happens. Thought-provoking.
