Love Says: A Free Verse Sonnet

Love says:

Why are you so afraid, my child?

I am the Pearl that you have always wanted;

A Flame ablaze with passion,

Burning with Light, in the fire of my own sweetness.

In my sanctuary, the abyss prostrates;

Balls of bleak winter becomes flooded,

With the glimmering rays of the sun.

Let the old memories be scattered;

Come and cuddle next to me; I’ll keep you warm.

Petunias and tulips glimmer and dance,

Wrapping their fragrances around

A Heart, emanating the nectar of the Beloved.

You are that Love; You are that Nectar.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 31st January, 2018.
