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.

Ah, thanks Peggy.

Are you metaphorically speaking? Your eggplant of the soul is harvesting well. Haha

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on March 03, 2020:

I like the idea of a garden of love. My eggplant seeds have been soaked and are ready to plant—time to get them in the soil. Your second poem is more somber, and your third, enchanting. You always give us ideas to ponder. Good job!

manatita44 (author) from london on December 18, 2017:

You are observant. Thank you so much!!

vasantha T k on December 18, 2017:

manatita, life is going on, am ok. Writing around 500 poems is an achievement. Good going!!

manatita44 (author) from london on December 18, 2017:

Yes, my Dear.

How are You? Hope that all is well with you. Thanks for the fine sentiment.

vasantha T k on December 18, 2017:

manatita, lovely poetry!!ultimate gain is to attain inner peace.

manatita44 (author) from london on December 13, 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!!

Ajodo Endurance Uneojo from Lokoja, Nigeria. on December 13, 2017:

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.

Ajodo Endurance Uneojo from Lokoja, Nigeria. on December 13, 2017:

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.

manatita44 (author) from london on December 09, 2017:

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!!

Robin Carretti from Hightstown on December 09, 2017:

This one I am speechless so amazingly spiritual and how every word symbolizes the beauty of tranquility so serene. How creatively word set like a sunset wonderful I felt I was on a vacation of the mind

manatita44 (author) from london on December 07, 2017:

Thank you so much, my Brother. Appreciated.

MG Singh emge from Singapore on December 07, 2017:

Brother, one of the best poems I have read. You have a fertile mind.God bless

manatita44 (author) from london on December 06, 2017:

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!

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on December 06, 2017:

Yes, we relocated...all finished and settled now thankfully.

Linda Crampton from British Columbia, Canada on December 06, 2017:

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

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on December 06, 2017:

"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.

manatita44 (author) from london on December 06, 2017:

...aaaah, feel for you, my dear. At least yours is far superior to mines. Yes, 'Never stop seeing yourself as God sees you.' You know Spanish?Cool!

Linda Lum from Washington State, USA on December 06, 2017:

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.

manatita44 (author) from london on December 06, 2017:

My dear Shauna,

You are alive!!! Hope life is treating you well. Miss you here. Stay well and much gratitude. Loving thoughts.

Shauna L Bowling from Central Florida on December 06, 2017:

Your words and heart are as beautiful as ever, Manatita! I love the images that "My Enchanting Beauty" played in my mind.

Thanks for this gentle carrier of light.

manatita44 (author) from london on December 06, 2017:

Thanks a million, Bill. All the best.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on December 06, 2017:

Well, I am a gardener, and I believe in the power of love...so a garden of love seems like something right up my alley. :) Peace be with you, oh wise one!

manatita44 (author) from london on December 06, 2017:

manatita44 (author) from london on December 06, 2017:

Well hello, Jodah. How are You? Vague is this memory of mines, but were you not relocating? Trust that all is now well.

Thank you so much.

Patricia Scott from North Central Florida on December 06, 2017:

Gardens of love....definitely what we need. Love heals us in so many ways...I am so delighted that you share your work Manatita because there is hope that resides in most of your work that I have read.

Angels are on the way this morning ps
