On Flowers

Flowers are the Light of the Beloved, expressing their kaleidoscope of beauty to the Hearts of receptive souls. They offer their splendour, redolence and above all, humility and sacrifice, to the service of Love in humanity.

Burgundy Roses


Burgundy Flowers. A Regular Sonnet

Burgundy roses, shinning in meadows,

Colours of beauty, for weddings; for Love.

Thorns to protect these grandiose heroes,

Redolence of Jasmines, straight from above.

Peonies, dahlias and red garland thrills,

Purple lavenders and orchids galore.

Cute Lilac lilies in aubergine fields,

Magenta tulips and rainbows in flow.

Pink raven sunflowers; exotic smells,

Burgundy Hollyhocks; blossoming pride.

Blooming perennials, weaving their spells,

Magical camellias, where love abides.

Butterflies dancing in glorious Light,

Souls filled with tear-drops in joyful delight.

A Journey to Light. A Free-style Sonnet

Walking alone in this labyrinth of confusion,

I relied on my own strength to see me through.

All seemed lost, however, as my pace became

Shorter and shorter, forcing the ego to diminish.

Alone in my desperate need, I cried out to the

Indigo moon, even as the night swallowed me in

Darkness; yet she revealed herself, emanating a

Magnificent lustre, to a soul dying for the Light.

Now I lay this Temple, on her compassionate lap, as the

Light dances, feeding my core with celestial music. Love,

The sweet fuel of my oxygen, whispers to Orion, imparting

Its luminance to my breath; lifting my veil of shadowy fears.

Now I sail on the wings of silvery Light,

You feeding this tavern with Ecstasy-Delight.

Thought for Today, by Manatita

The purity of a snow-white Heart and the dynamic flame of the soul's aspiration, are the beginning and the end of the journey.


Wisdom from the Master

"When we look at a flower, the beauty, we have to feel inside our Hearts, the same flower. Afterwards we have to feel that the Heart, has become the flower. That Heart-flower has fragrance in infinite measure and God created the beauty and fragrance of the flower..." - Sri Chinmoy
