Come, My Beautiful Light, Come! To My Dear Friend, Carb Diva


Manatita is an esteemed author living in London, UK. He writes spiritual books, flash fiction and esoteric poetry, his favourite genre.

O Light, my Beautiful Light.


You have come to me,

From beyond the craters of the sun.

Above the shimmering waves,

You kiss my breath,

Pull on the memories of my yesterdays.

Swinging on the sweet pillars of eternity,

I lie serene, on the lap of the Unseen.

O Light, I am the music You create;

You are the sparkle that dances,

At the core of this perennial Love.

I glide, like an eagle, in the bliss of Thy infinitude,

Soar with the cluster of birds,

As they illuminate the sky.

O Light, my beautiful One, Come!

I travel through Time;

Watch Your twinkling star,

As it guides the Magi to the child in swaddling clothes,

Lying in a Manger.

High in the chimney You lie,

Adorning the rays of Santa Claus,

As You prepare him for the Christmas Joy.

I hear Your jingling bells, sparkling in the twilight,

Feel Your sweet thrill, dancing in the Spirit of Christ.

You reveal Thyself, in the immaculate purity

Of our Lord, paving a path of effulgence,

For me to find my way home.

O Light, my Beautiful Light, Come!

Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 14th December, 2017.

~ Awakening The Inner Light ~

Quote from Manatita

"What is Light? the polestar pierces the darkness of the night and illuminate the sky, much like the flame of a candle does to a darkened room. So too,the dark night of the soul awakens to its inherent lustre, when it unites once more with the Beloved and become One. Yet before this happens, phases of this sweet spark, appear as beacons to encourage the soul."-Manatita

Wisdom of srichinmoy


Quote from Manatita

"The radiant glow of outer light, is symbolic of the Light within each soul, striving to manifest, in myriad ways, the same one Truth." -Manatita

It sure would Ann, it sure would. That's why am here. But there are a scattered few of different Faiths everywhere.

Thank you so much! I like your teacher's mantra. Lol. Gratitude.

Ann Carr from SW England on April 10, 2018:

Lovely lifting lines to reflect the spirit of Christmas which should exist all the year round of course; sadly, it doesn't seem to. Brings to mind the teacher's mantra - 'must try harder'! If enough people did, it would work.


manatita44 (author) from london on December 26, 2017:

Thank you, Rajanji.

May the current spirit of Light, Joy and Happiness pervading the atmosphere, be with you and your loved ones, even unto the end of time ... Happy New Year!!

Rajan Singh Jolly from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on December 25, 2017:

Uplifting quotes and soothing poem. Your poems transport me into another world every time I read them.

manatita44 (author) from london on December 21, 2017:

Thank you Eric.

I thought that you had seen this one. Gravitas and Happy Christmas!

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on December 21, 2017:

Sweet Love. Thank you.

manatita44 (author) from london on December 19, 2017:

Warm indeed, my Friend.

Great for the season, I suppose. Thank you so much!

Frank Atanacio from Shelton on December 19, 2017:

a wonderful hub my friend so warm are the words

manatita44 (author) from london on December 17, 2017:

Thank you, my Sister Dabby.

Permit me to say that you seem a young woman with much promise. Stay vigilante! Do not get caught up by modern consumerism and desires. They are very alluring. Avoid the things that make you weak, like poison.Work hard, exercise, strive to be happy. I bid you much peace. Gratitude ...

manatita44 (author) from london on December 17, 2017:

Ah, Alicia.

You're so kind. Don't you like the first? It offers promise. For me, at least, as I have had many of these charming 'sparks' which appear to encourage the soul.

The one you like is saying what my Guruji says beneath it, only in a different way. Thank you so much!!

Linda Crampton from British Columbia, Canada on December 16, 2017:

I like the whole hub very much, but I love the second quote from you. Thank you for including it, Manatita.

manatita44 (author) from london on December 16, 2017:

Thank you, Audrey.

Always good to see you. Thank you so much!

Audrey Hunt from Pahrump NV on December 16, 2017:

This is a lovely tribute to Linda. I love the spiritual message in your poem so filled with love and light.

manatita44 (author) from london on December 16, 2017:

Bill, a funny one indeed and I chuckle with you. Let us add the Light in her Heart also; the Light of all Lights that radiates with Unending Love. Thank you so much!!


Appreciated bro. I'm always happy when you grace my page with your wonderful contributions.

Venkatachari M from Hyderabad, India on December 16, 2017:

Very beautiful poem and a nice dedication to Carb Diva.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on December 16, 2017:

The beautiful light you see is the light on Linda's oven as she bakes delicious meals. LOL Thanks for celebrating my good friend Linda!

manatita44 (author) from london on December 16, 2017:

If I know your Heart - and I'm not saying that you are wrong - then I must be doing something right, eh? (sweet chuckle).

Yes, I totally understand the Saviour/devotee relationship. I have a few friends here like that. I applaud all of you. By the way, I gave a friend two books some years ago, which you may also like. Available on Amazon. God knows that you have enough to do. Still, chose at least one.

The Imitation of Christ by Thomas A Kempis and The Practice of The Presence of God by Brother Lawrence. There's a third one, yet another gem by Sadhu Sundar Singh called At The Feet of The Master.

So happy that you came and so happy that you liked the Hub. Have a great weekend.

Linda Lum from Washington State, USA on December 16, 2017:

Manatita, you know my heart and you understand what my Savior means to me. Thank you for taking the time to pen these words. They are beautiful, and you have a beautiful, loving heart. Blessings to you my dear friend.

manatita44 (author) from london on December 16, 2017:

Why not Brother, why Not?

You have been blessed with the land of Rama, Ramakrisha, Krishna, Chaitanya... need I go on?

The light shines in your Heart also.

Thank you so much!!

MG Singh emge from Singapore on December 16, 2017:

Nice poem Lovely sentiments, wish all of us could be the same

Dabby Lyric on December 15, 2017:

Oh my goodness, this is so Deeply Spiriual and Calming! I feel at peace right now and I must say Thank you. So much is going on in my life but your words and the words in the video have put such a much needed smile on my face! That Light within is so powerful!
