A Droplet in This Ocean of the Unknown

Manatita is an esteemed author living in London, UK. He writes spiritual books, flash fiction and esoteric poetry, his favourite genre.


I’m a 'droplet', in this Ocean of the Unknown.

A tiny puppet, striving to find my way Home.

Rising and falling with turbulent waves;

Designed by the Puppeteer, who pulls the strings.

I can of my own self do nothing.

‘Tis the breath of His Breath,

Which strengthens me.

Swinging with streams of 'raging currents',

I’m at the mercy of 'winds;' always hoping

To evade the 'tornadoes' kiss of death.

Sweet Grace, my Grace! Descend! Descend!

Let me feel Thy radiant flame at every moment.

Navigate the journey on this fragile Path,

Illumining the 'shadows' of the Heart.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 23rd June, 2018

You are the entire ocean in a drop." -Rumi.
