Better Than a Million Jars of Sugarcane Juice

Here I stand, lost in the aroma of Your silhouette.

Thy lips are like a scented garden,

From which I sense the redolence of flowers,

Blooming and blossoming like the breath of Spring.

I reflect briefly on the bud of jasmines.

The harsh winter is no more,

And the bees are diligent

In their melliferous terrain.

Today, like the bee, I’m busy also,

Enmeshed in the ocean of Thy sweetness.

One quite different from that of pollen,

And filled with the sugar of Paradise.

Aye, my Beloved, I have sampled a thousand jars of honey.

Yet the nectar that I am ravishing today,

Is better than a million sticks of sugarcane juice,

And I swoon and dance in the heart of Love.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 18th February, 2018.


Sealing my Heart With Lips of Love. A Free Verse Sonnet

An array of colours;

A sacred flame from the palm of God's own Light,

Tugged at the fire of my Heart.

Releasing an unfolding canopy of clouds,

They filled by Soul with an ocean of longing,

The bliss of which remains anew.

Down in the valley of weeping nights,

I ascend on the dawn of awakening Delight.

The morning rays herald another glorious morn,

And now my tears are born from copious bliss.

O Hari, You descended into the eye of my abyss,

Carrying a radiant flow of lanterns.

Erasing the veil from this life of darkness;

Sealing my Heart with lips of Love.

_ Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 18th February, 2018.
