Bring Forth a Garden of Love to Enchant The Soul

The Seeress said: “It is not always wise,

To follow a crowd of seeming reason.

The end may appear to justify the means,

But the resultant conquest, may bear a heavy price,

Of chaos and countless suffering.

Success may bring temporary peace,

But Peace itself, is a supernal victory.

Should the voice of might descend on a city,

It will only leave shadows and shattered dreams.

The cries of the Heart will reverberate,

Carrying an ocean of tears to distant lands.

O Lantern, torrential rain will not dry the soil;

Fire will only burn brighter in fire.

Bring forth a garden of Love, to enchant the soul.”


-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier, 13th August, 2017.

A Collection of Shadows

Papers, papers; articles from auctions,

Facebook, Twitter and internet results.

Cobwebs, darkness; a mind of collections,

Despair and desire, their sorrowful scouts.


Culture, dogma; doctrine ingrained,

Habits and pleasures, again and again.

Family, environment; moving trains,

Serving the patterns, that causes the pain.


Transient attachments and fanciful cars,

Antique magazines; intellect’s garage.

Gluttony; loneliness, sickness and wars,

Pockets of darkness and mental discharge.


Papers, Papers; articles from auctions,

Cobwebs, darkness; a mind of collections.

My Enchanting Beauty

She came … a beauty so enchanting,

That my speech failed; my tongue subdued,

By the magical strands of her aura.

She fed me with cinnamon ice cream,

Flooded my Heart with golden Light,

As we waltzed beneath the blazing surface of the sun.

On that memorable day, we dined with lips on fire,

Fed by a mellifluous Love so powerful,

That I was transfixed by its Delight.

I held her delicate hands, as we drifted sweetly,

On wings of zephyrs and golden rain.

With breath transposed on the starlit lap of twilight,

We rode on radiant lanterns,

To gaze in awe on the pinnacle-lustre of the moon.


-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier, 26th August, 2017.

      Yes. Love is synomymous with Light and also God. It is Love that makes the addict pierce his veins; the paramour yearns for his sweetheart and the miser hoards. Love is hidden even in the dark shades of war.

      One way of having a grasp on Spirituality, is to say that God is everything; that there is nothing outside the Divine and so whatever comes from Divine Providence, is always fruitful of good and Light.. The whole of life is a quest for Love. Many of my 500 poems say this. Thank you so much!!

      Great Piece of poems here Manatita.

      Love them.

      I could think love is everything that is made and unmade.

      It's both creative and dogmatic.

      Great Piece Manatita.

      I wish to think love is everything made and unmade.

      Sometimes it is beauty, other times it is emotion.

      Sometimes it is creative, other times it is dogma.

      Love is petal of ross flower and em...

      Until it dies deep within, it remains a flames.

      Yes, it's a vacation of the mind, meaning that the mind is silent, vacant... We feel through the 'Heart.' Remember, this is mystical poetry. The mind is pleased, no doubt, but what truly moves us comes from the Heart. It is more lasting.

      So happy you came. You show a soft and childlike mind. Great for acquiring wisdom. Carry on!!

      Judah,

      Great news! Good to know.

      Linda,

      Thank you so much! Appreciated.

      Dee,

      Yes, yes... the second is sort of metaphysical. It basically talks about our mental collections... the sort of garbage - necessary if you like - that we collect in life. Our habits, customs ... all the transient things which shapes us and hold us back. Thank you so much!

      The first two poems contain some interesting ideas to consider and the last one contains some lovely imagery. I enjoyed reading all of them.

      "But Peace itself, is a supernal victory." Powerful one-liners like these set you apart. You blend the earthly and heavenly so beautifully, as in the first and third poems.

      Wonderful as always. (However, I was not feeling the love in my garden yesterday. The dinner-plate-sized leaves from the big leaf maple--my they are well-named--have made a dreadful mess of my front yard LOL).

      The verse with the gull is beautiful.
