I Flowed Into Your Ocean and We Became One
Eyes filled with tears; Heart flowing with longing,
I saw that many seasons of dawn and hope
Came, only to disappear like darkened clouds,
Hovering over distant horizons.
Many summers past; then the magenta autumn came,
Blanketing the dusk with its rose-coloured petals.
You appeared with a lushness, smiling on the edge of sunset.
The delicate, silent calligraphy of your fragrant fingers,
Lingering slowly up and down my burning lips,
Transmitting a thrilling energy, which stunned the Heart.
Drunk in a serene conversation of Love divine,
My core whispered softly, a tender call of Freedom.
Out of this vibrant river of perennial joy,
I flowed into Your Ocean and we became One.

My Rose on the Wings of Light
Ode to Beauty I: A free verse Sonnet-Ode
I have long since been searching for my Queen.
Ever illusive, She rides upon the wind,
Whispers in the sunflowers and daffodils;
Awakes in the hue of rainbows;
Veils Herself, even in the valley of despair.
Yet She must not be rushed, and
Neither is She easily seen.
And when finally She reveals Herself,
To the yearning chords of the Spirit,
Let your conversations be sweetly silent.
For Beauty is a rose on the wings of Light;
A flame glowing in the Hearts of Lovers
Transmitting Its sacred music,
In the inner Citadel of the Soul.
-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 30th October, 2017.

Beauty is ...
How much of beauty do you see?
