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.

    Dearest Manatita! This birthday has been a surprise from start, on. And the topper is surely this lovely tribute to the day of my beginning, Feb. 2, 1932! I love your precious poem and the choice of pictures is wonderful.

    Thank you, Harish, for the lovely well-wishes!

    How wonderful to be alive and well. Every moment is a unique treasure and an unlimited chance to fulfill one's destiny.
