A New Year's Heart of Beauty. Monday's Inspiration 62. To a Special Friend Doris James Miz Bejabbers

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

"The beauty of a luminous Heart, is the pinnacle of all shines." -Manatita

"One beautiful Heart,

Is better than

A thousand beautiful faces;

So choose better people,

having beautiful Hearts,

Rather than beautiful faces." -


Your Heart of Beauty. A free-style Sonnet

Soft and intimate … charming, charisma oozing

From Your sweet smile, like the candescent moonlight.

With wisdom gifted by the Light of Silence,

Your Heart of beauty imbibes, like the rose,

The redolent intimacy of lustrous stars.

Orchids are so exquisite! They dance in spring,

Robes gracefully majestic, like the swan in flight.

You are my swan – a soul-bird waltzing in the infinity

Of Freedom, blowing kisses to the breeze, Your wings

Whispering to the profundity of Silence, of the glories of Love.

I see You, walking on dawns: ever anew, vibrant,

Replenishing the music of starlings, gracefully

Marching to the rhythm of tomorrow’s sunshine –

A thousand candles, burning brightly in the soul.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 18th January, 2016


A New Dawn Descends. A Free-style Sonnet

Sales soar upon the sails of January, 2020;

Like a vessel, receiving these new beginnings.

The old night is gone; sojourners row upon a golden

Vision, their ship steeped with longing, for another horizon.

Sunrise heralds the advent of day-break,

The song-birds whistle merrily, while the foliage

Dance in light zephyrs. I throw my old rugged coat,

Rush to M & S and dresses smartly.

The old noise subsides, a lustered dawn’s descending;

Hope’s promises blossom anew. The night is fading,

The poet of silence enters … brush on easel strokes,

Painting Valentine’s exquisite song – Love’s beautiful face.

My shadowed mirror fades; rain sings to twilight stars ascending;

Beauty kisses my soul, as sunset whispers to the moon.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 19th January, 2020


Wisdom from the Master

"It is an exceptional privilege,

To have the beauty of a serene mind,

The purity of a loving Heart

And the divinity of a humble life." - Sri Chinmoy

Renewal and Beauty
