I Offered My All On The Lap Of The Beloved One.

Suddenly I stopped searching;

Suddenly I was not looking anymore,

For You entered the agony of my longing,

Flooding my core with Your Delight.

Who says that man is not drunk?

Aye, my Empress,

I touched the sweet Silence of Your Love;

My Heart barked like a dog,

Wagging its tail gleefully to greet its master.

Dazed and reeling from this intoxication of kisses,

My lips were sealed on fire;

I gave myself in homage at Your feet.

Whirling and dancing the speechless dance of ecstasy;

I offered my all on the lap of the Beloved One.

_Manatita, February 10th, 2018. The Lantern Carrier


Love Is

Love Is ...

Love is like a magical gardener.

She preens the impediments of the soul,

Only to dazzle, like moonbeams,

With an effulgent Light.

Love is like the notes of a piano,

Unfolding, like a tapestry of flowers,

To the melody of the inner music.

Love is like a budding rose.

She knows that the beauty

Of the blossom and its fragrance,

Is yet to come.

Love is like a bewildering thrill

That stuns the Heart,

Stabbing it with the rhapsody of the Divine."

O my Beloved, You are that Love;

You are that rhapsody."

-Manatita, 29/01/2018.


Quote from Sri Chinmoy

"When Peace id multiplied, Truth is multiplied.

When Truth is multiplied, Love is multiplied.

When Love is multiplied, God is multiplied." -Sri Chinmoy

    Indeed, Dee. Indeed!! The ancient seers used what is called 'Sutras'. We know them as psalms, aphorisms, beatitude, couplets, zen koans and so forth.

    They were intended to speak volumes in a very succinct way. Many times I stop at 14 lines of free verse, precisely for this reason. That's why I 'chisel' them, so they become near perfect.

    Seers like Guruji are Masters at this, so that a week later; a month later and so forth, they appear quite different; more profound; more meaningful. I'm working on that.

    Your sense of observation has always been strong and you are beginning to express them more. My Gratitude to you ... much. Praise be!

    "My Heart barked like a dog." That's new and effective, as are the similes in your "Love Is." Some of your phrases equal paragraphs in the volumes they speak.
