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...

Her Anklets Whisper

Her anklets whisper
To the nearby grass blades,
The reclining sun
Will come again
The day might be
Drawing close
The evening 
Might soothe
Her soul
But she is waiting
For the new day
To come 
To hold her close
To tell her
"Your anklets
Told me,
You were here

Will there be a day?

When I will
Let you blindfold me,
Then hold my hand,
And take me
Far away...

With my eyes closed
I might fall,
Get lost
In the jostling crowd about.
But you will be around.
holding my stand,
Leading the path.
Letting me only hear.
I might struggle
I might get frightened...
Yet, you will
Never let go of me.
Patiently explain...
There is nothing to fear.
Nothing to feel threatened of.

Lead me out of the mayhem.
Lead me "not to the stars."
But to a place quiet.
Where I can breathe.

I will feel
The sea breeze.
Feel the waves...
Touching my feet.
Feel the soft evening
Over my face.
And slowly slip away.
Into a comforting slumber.

Will there be
Such a day?

The Tale of Footprints


Left on the wake

Of dawn...

These were not washed

The waves have not erased
Their presence.

Where the owner

Walk with me

Walk with me
Till the raindrops
Touch our feet.

Walk with me
Till my silence
feel your words.

Walk with me
Till the roads 

Walk with me
Till I 
Forget those 
Painful moments.

Walk with me
For I need you
By my side.

While I stand
Facing the ocean
While I watch 
The sun 
Closing the day
While I wait 
For the night.
To steal me away...
Walk with me...
