Wisdom-Quote from the Master

"If we remember

All our good qualities

And all the good things

We have done,

Then we will receive

Tremendous inner strength and joy."-Sri Chinmoy


Nature's Gold


"Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf,
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day
Nothing gold can stay." -Robert Frost


"Only lovers
see the fall
a signal end to endings
a gruffish gesture alerting
those who will not be alarmed
that we begin to stop
in order to begin
again." -Maya Angelou


Candles of Love

There are many candles in my words today;

The rhapsody of heaven awakens to their flame.

A delicate breath caresses the eardrums,

Carrying a rhythm and eloquence unmatched.

O Love! Spring heralds Your enfolding splendour,

Thy warm, radiant beams stroking my core,

With mellifluous words, that bathes the Soul.

Come, O Bards, O lovers of intonations,

My lips are calling; the Spirit burns with passion.

How I love these silent satsangs with my friends!

Can you come a little closer?

Listen … our conjoined thrills soar over Jordan,

Singing together like cordless kites;

Burning the Light of the Heart with floods of Joy.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier, 23rd March 2018.



Wise and Soulful Quotes from Bard and Seer Poets

"Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run ..." From John Keats Ode to Autumn

" Adversity makes you dynamic

Adversity forces your eyes wide open

Adversity teaches you the meaning of patience

Adversity endows you with faith in yourself." -Sri Chinmoy



Wisdom-Quote from Nellieanna Hay. Taken from 'Transparent Heart'. A most sublime piece of writing

"I'm riding high

On this relation-ship,

Savoring every move,

Each bite and sip;

Letting go of landmarks

Where they no longer fit,

To better see the way,

The way which is itself -

Is IT!

______© Nellieanna H. Hay


This Feeling of Love

"This feeling of love,

made me as high as a kite,

gave my imagination wings.

I wanted to fly to the skies,

glide along with the clouds -

that had a shimmery silvery glow.

there was no more fight left in me,

when I surrendered to love..." _Gypsy Rose Lee (Rasma Raisters) Taken from 'This feeling of Love."

Wise quote from Emily Dickinson


But Not Yet, Sweet Patricia, Not Yet.

The Waiting Room of Heaven Sit Now

Feel the mist of air surround you.
Touch the wind as it moves through you.
Stroke the door of your heart and feel.
You blind me with your loveliness-
This loveliness, so quiet and still,
so unannounced.

You have surprised my heart,
my heart so languid.
You held my heart and made me feel,
nestled against the shoulder of my grief
I have found your loveliness comforting.

Come now to me.
