Into The Lap of The Beloved One. A Free Verse Sonnet

Floating gracefully in the ether,

She awoke in a world seemingly unknown.

Bathing in a plethora of heavenly sweetness,

She became immersed in a pageantry of Light.

She remembered the last hug;

The rain weeping poignantly on their shoulders.

She heard the lamentations of the sparrow,

Prayerfully invoking blessings from the sun.

Slowly she recognised her new environment,

This sweet realm of supernal Love.

Now released from her earthly bond, her

Heart opened inwards, into the golden kiss of Silence .

Her earthly chains evaporated, as she ran joyfully,

Into the lap of the Beloved One. - Manatita, The Lantern Carrier, 17th April, 2018


Raindrops from Heaven. A Free Verse Sonnet

Perhaps They Were Right

They came offering honey; he declined.

Perhaps they were right.

They said that he was selfish,

Perhaps they were right.

They said that he plagiarised their work,

Accused others of plagiarism,

Perhaps they were right.

They said that he worshiped another God,

Perhaps they were right.

He dived deep within, reflected

On these rain-drops from heaven.

Perhaps they were right.

O Light, my Love, let the Heart speak!

Who knows? Perhaps they were right.

Manatita, The Lantern Carrier, 18th April 2018.

Awakening The Inner Light.

"Adversity makes you dynamic. Adversity forces your eyes wide open. Adversity teaches you the meaning of patience. Adversity endows you with faith in yourself. Adversity opens the secret door through which you can see the ultimate future fulfillment of God's Will." -Sri Chinmoy

    I wish them God's continued Peace.

    Your description of the second poem is an interesting one. I like it.

    I wrote to you about the desire for mash potatoes yesterday. I walked out of the computer room nearly two hours later and they were serving got it right! God answers prayers. Have a blessed day.

    The first poem brought to mind two of my sisters who have entered Heaven. The second one is very tender, wistful , thought provoking. I liked it very much. These two are precious to me.

    Thank you Tim.

    Appreciated. Always a joy to hear from you. You remind me of Ioannis, two different but both loving souls. God bless your Heart. God bless your family.

    Hi Alicia.

    Your powers of observation are quite keen. Chuckle. Thank you so much!

    Yes Doris.

    You might say that it is esoteric language. I have used it a few times. I nearly said 'bosum'. We ethereal 'crazies' are always using mystical language.

    Thank you so much!

    Manitita, I love the first one "Into the Lap..." In fact I believe it is my favorite of anything of yours that I've read. The other is good and signifies what we should all strive for, but that one brings me tears of joy.

    Exquisite! Sweet to the soul as water to the lips. Away from my brothers troubles of life forced me until such time I can visit again. Refreshing. Soul enlightening. Thank you.

    You say much in both works.

    The floating person in your first poem reminded me that some day we will return to "soul" completely and sit with Our Lord.

    Adversity makes us wiser as you said.

    Today, I will catch up with my reading. This was a place to start, with much love.

    As always, Manatita, your poems bring emotions and cause me to ponder the meaning of love and life. My life is all about transitioning, reflecting, and then moving in the direction I am called. It's deeper than that, but I know you know.

    I got my wife a hanging plaque that partially read "God danced the day you were born" for her birthday. You remind me that God also dances when we are eternally with Him. Before and after earthly death.

    Hello Manatita, your first poem is gentle and sweet like nature. Pleasing to the senses. Your second're right about that, perhaps they were right! It shows conflict clearly. Thanks for sharing. :)

    Hm! A mystic Manatita! I think you want to say a lot more than you write. Or it 's only my idea! Those two poems are fantastic and multileveled. Thank you for this magic and the beauty.

    My gift to you:

    The Angel told him: "Because you loved others more than yourself, I have prepared a place for you in Paradise."

    And he replied: "Because I love others more than myself, I already live in Paradise!" - Sean Dragon
