A Tao of Love Floods my Soul. A Free Verse Sonnet

You called my name, O Lover,

A thousand Joys within me stirred!

Here I sit, calm, serene …

Engrossed in the gaze of Infinitude.

Mother Heaven kisses my breath;

The Beloved One dances before me.

Come! Sweet Rhapsody!

Enwrap my core with Your bliss-filled Silence.

The fears of the mind are extinguished;

From deep within emerges the Light.

The pride of the ego evaporates;

The tears of the Heart are unmatched with longing.

Love descends from the rays of an indigo moonlight,

Flooding my soul with its Delight.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier, 2nd January, 2018.

Translation: Consider the continuous range of nuances with reality. If for you there is only white or black, consider your limited perception


The Spirit of Hope for Another Golden Dawn

O Hope, my uncaged bird within the soul,

Ever anew, thy spark glimmers, upon each golden dawn.

A New Year beckons and challenges await;

I hear the Guardians of the virgin morn:

“Come!” They say. “The old clock is gone!”

Let us move forward to the vision of the great unknown.

The clarion-call of promise,

Whispers a cute melody in my core.

Arise! Awake! The cuckoo chants beatitudes,

Telling of my yesterday's; rejoicing in my tomorrows.

O Flame! Such beauty in Your lustre!

Burning my host of indiscretions,

You herald the Light of tomorrow's dreams.

O Hope, my uncaged bird, sweet Jerusalem approaches.

Let us soar to the pinnacle of this blinding Love.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 30th December, 2017
