The lilac-breasted roller bird chants verses,

As the verdant hue of the foliage,

Draws me inwards, like a fragrant rose.


Across the terrace where I now sit, a translucent

Pool dances, kissing the radiance of the sun.


The cute smile of the child hooded In yellow,

Inspires a tender whisper from my Heart,

Cascading a sweetness that I now feel.


A magical symphony of music resonates,

Amidst the delicate aroma of lunch,

Prepared and served, in this ambient setting.


Banana trees unfurl with the zephyrs;

I gaze at an eagle, beneath a canopy of vastness,

As Love floods my soul, with its Delight.


_Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 11th April 2018.

An Offering to John's Soaring Poetical Heights, like the Eagle.

" Sweet soaring bird, fly, fly!

Herald the sweet calling of the One

In infinity's vastness.

Come! Come, my Beloved,

To dance and play with me,

Flooding my core with Your rhapsody of Sweetness." -Manatita
