My vagabond

I am a fixed constant, here where I belong,

She is my vagabond tied in a vow ages long,

She introduced me to the world through the magic of books,

From the glimpse of authors the way existence should look,

Varied perspectives and philosophies that always kept me hooked.

She played the music that filled me with contemptuous glee,

Like an enchanting shell hymning song of the sea.

We spoke of flowers and bees in cheerful spring,

How they colorfully bloom, hop, dance and sing.

In the summer we praised the majestic sun,

How it burns bright for our vast galaxy to run,

Not to forget the warm message the arid winds carry,

blissfully touching us on a serene lake in a small ferry.

Then came the rain wild, rough and strong,

Washing our hearts from the drying pain that prolongs,

we talked of mountains how they bath in monsoon,

releasing gathered warmth thus wetting their feet,

They make themselves cold, to honor the wintry groom,

As they are ready to wear blanket covered of snow sheets.

Lost loves and divine tragedies were stories of fall,

Separation is inevitable in a bond big or small,

Like the story of the tree and leaf bright and green,

Artistically deranged as red and orange in an Autumn sheen.

Winter was harsh and cold in the comfort of our quilts,

Bone chilling full moon nights making our wills to wilt,

But it was a time for spine tingling campfire tales,

Burning fireplace splinters, our anxieties up scaled,

It’s was a time of exhilarating desires,

Little we shivered, little we burnt like fire..

While we lived seasonal tales of the normal,

We also dived into mystical realms of paranormal,

Ghosts, crypt-ids, bizarre tales with inter dimensional travels,

Like a child we had fantastical secrets to unravel.

I remember we watched eclipses and blood moons together,

And wondered about the power of the cosmos and the puzzle they tether.

I am a fixed constant, here where I belong,

She is my vagabond tied in a vow ages long,

I have lived these moments time and again,

Sometimes remembering as joy,sometimes as pain,

While her essence always surrounds,

She is a bond that will keep moving around,

Like any true love tale we had to split apart,

but still strong together, we can never truly depart !

Re-posting one of my old poetry about my Vagabond. Hope you all like it and feel a stronger connection to your soul mates. Stay well and Safe.



  1. Exceptional poem, Vinayak! I love the rhyme scheme and the conversational flow. I also like the first two lines in refrain prior to the closing of the verse. It beautifully resets the stage for the reader and adds power to the final lines. Although the entire poem is lovely and powerful as a whole, there were a few lines that just jump out at me. My favorite was “Like an enchanting shell hymning songs of the sea”. I wish I had wrote that. Well done, my friend!
