More Celebration of Brenda's 29th Prompt on Freedom


Zephyrs kiss the rose

Its breath dances gleefully

My soul drinks beauty.

This sweet atonement

My Heart 'wakens to the Light

A dawn unfurling

Awake! O Lover!

The moon and stars are dancing

The nightingales sing

The virgin morn smiles

Renewal is its glimmer

Spring awakes the rose

Wisdom from the Master

"True freedom does not lie in speaking ill of the world, or in speaking ill of an individual or individuals. Again, true freedom does not lie in merely appreciating and admiring the world or humanity at large. True freedom lies only in our inseparable oneness with the world’s inner cry and its outer smile. The world’s inner cry is God the Realisation. The world’s outer smile is God the Manifestation.@ - Sri Chinmoy

Quote on Freedom


I Bask in The Light That Never Sleeps. A Free-style Sonnet

For millennia, I lived in a tunnel with crows

And shadows. The cold winter chill with which

Greed engulfed me, was at times my sole

Companion, until Love paid a visit to my abyss.

Seeing a dim-lit candle in the distance, I gave myself

To the Beloved, as compassion embraced me, with its vast

Ocean of celestial sweetness. Now instead of walking in the

Darkness, I am entranced by the splendour of glimmering Lights.

The redolence of jasmines soothes my Spirit, and I

Dance with the grace of butterflies; the elegance of swans.

The melody of starlings, sing to me of Spring; I smile as the

Sunflowers waltz to the breeze, unfurling their magic in meadows.

Long and wearisome was this sojourn! But ballads of moonbeams

Heralds the dawn, as I bask in the Light, that never sleeps.

- Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 14th September, 2021

The Light of The Rose


The Enchanted Home-coming

I play the ecstatic music of the Flautist,

As I go forth to manifest Her melodies.

I offer myself like the delicate breeze,

Dancing with willows in the breath of Spring.

My Heart is pining for Shyama’s Love,

As She lifts me, like a bird, and I glide

Into the magenta hue of autumnal leaves,

Soaring in freedom with light Zephyrs.

Into the sunset of the valley of golden lanterns,

I hear the choo, choo, choo, of my destined train,

And I yearn for the coming of my sunrise. The

Effulgence of the moon, has sent me an invitation.

My soul, now captivated by its beauty, rains joyful tears,

Eager to enjoy the symphonies, of an enchanted home-coming.

- Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 29th April, 2016

Hope, a precursor to Freedom


Wisdom from the Master

"In the inner world, woman and man have equal freedom to cherish the mind’s inspiration, the heart’s aspiration and the soul’s realisation. Furthermore, inspiration is woman; aspiration is man." - Sri Chinmoy
