A Vagabond's Diary - Poem by ARPITA BHAGAT

"Pass, dear one, since thy pain is thy sole joy
Restless as thou are, searching for eerie unknown
Mahogany awakes thee whilst cypress blesses thine serene cot
Stretching days amidst lanes of pines
Whilst the penchant birch and oak fill mercurial senses
Though the ever-melting flaming desire ensue life

Ethereal hues of blue instill it dutifully
Since thou can but only relish the magnificence
With every step, molting for a new skin
Alas, the next destination befalls, leaving no repose
Admire, dear one, its flesh and soul
As love's enigma deserts thine destiny
Seeking thy curse-in-disguise
Whilst envious eyes prune thou so

Peace thy curve, restlessness whole
Gifting years to wilderness
Yet graying all alone
Familial joys thy depravity
Nature being sole enemy and pal
Living to mobility, mobility to live
Monologues thy teacher
and memory, a portrait bestowed forever! '

Arpita Bhagat

Poet's Notes about The Poem

A vagabond owns no place to call home or a family he can name his own. His life is all about seeking and his joy rests in discovering. Peace for him is in moving and constant change. He cannot afford to fall in love since his passion is euphoric; eternity is a second, a moment's thrill perhaps. Pleasure of the senses is however his sole respite.
The following piece inspired from his life.
