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

“Gratitude-Beauty, is God’s Treasure-Breath.” -Manatita

Salon ambience


The enchantment of nature, is Love’s secret Palace, beating its symphony in the Hearts of many. Blended in the magnitude of its inner Silence, we dance and play, like children, spontaneously hugging the intimacy of toys.

Nature's ambience

Ambience in Beauty, A Sonnet

Ambience in beauty -- a Lover’s kiss,

Sweet is the flavor of its character.

The awe of nature, a tenor for Peace,

The cadence of dawn, a joy forever.

The glow of the Heart is grandeur unseen,

Echoing in the eloquence of sounds.

Whispering to the soul of stars serene,

A twinkling paradise, where bliss abounds.

Rainbows and sunsets, belongs to the Bard,

His pen and canvas, great pearls of delight.

Like redolent roses; aromas of God;

Herons and butterflies, graceful in flight.

The aura of Love, a sight to behold,

With ambience-ecstasy-sparkling gold.

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

    I could not pikck one source of beauty versus another in your poll, brother.

    However, this is truly a wonderful tribute to Berlie, a talented writer.

    Thanks for creating such a fine work from the heart.

    Much respect,

    Speechless. Although, speech spoken is no longer void of speech... in that case... beautiful. A beautiful sonnet. Resonating the auras of those to be seen in ambience, it's self.

    Yes Linda L.

    The inner heaven is indeed full of Love and Light. Thank you so much!!


    I'm not sure either. Sometimes I write first and think after. Lol.

    I have dedicated both poems and prose to many people. There are two styles.

    In one style I'm extolling the virtues of the individual, a little of their character, traits, hobbies, family life ... and some more. Naturally I know them fairly well.

    These days I use the second style. If You follow me; if I admire your work, sooner or later I will dedicate something to you. It need not have any bearing or resemblance to who you are in character. Just something about you that draws me. That's all.

    Finally, it is easier to say why I write. I write to serve, to inspire, awaken or reach the Heart of all receptive souls. I carry a Light and simply offer without expectation.

    Long explanation to your comment. I'm so happy you came. My motive is always to serve. Thank you so much!!-Lantern Carrier.

    Thank you, my Brother, for reminding us that we live in Paradise!

    The light in the eyes of children smiling! The best description for Paradise!

    "Οι Ουρανοί διηγούνται δόξα Θεού!"

    That means: "The Heavens fable about the Glory of God!"

    There is no one perfect answer to your poll. Beauty is to be found everywhere, if one has an open and loving heart.

    How much God must love us that even in our human condition He would give us such things of beauty. Imagine, we cannot, how much more beautiful Heaven will be where all is perfection?

    Beautifully penned Sonnet manatita, not sure why it's addressed to me, but I accept it humbly, with respect Verlie

    2 years ago from london

    Well, my Sweet.

    Shows your wisdom ... your depth of understanting. Ambience is like Cadence. They are everywhere.

    How are you? I always love seeing you and hearing from you, but yes, sometimes there are practicalities, I know.

    Wishing you all the best ... always.

    There was really no way for me to truly choose the ONLY source of ambience and beauty in your poll. All of them generate it. If one wanted to pinpoint minute specifics of ambiance and beauty, each blade of grass, each drop of rain is a source.

    I so like your tribute to Verlie. She is one of my favorite poets and persons. Her words are, indeed, soulful.

    I especially like and agree with this:

    " The solution of the mind

    Is an organised way

    Of not coming to any conclusion." -Sri Chinmoy.

    Your sonnet is lovely.

    Ah! I was thinking when your offering for Verlie would come. I love her work, they are so soulful, and this offering of yours is equally so. Each line in this poem is crafted to perfection, and more. It is so perfect I cannot even pick a favorite line!

    I listened to a waterfall for a while Sunday morning after waking to the sound of rain on my tent. These are music to my ears. Your sonnet reveals a universe of beauty.
