Autumn Leaves, a Sonnet
Now falling 'pon the breeze, my garments lay,
I waltz on dew-clad hill-tops as I sway.
Dance through the pines; create my sweet array,
Then drift, blue skies caress this Autumn's day.
Now on this cool dark mistiness, I lie,
No one to hear my searing lovelorn cry.
Upon a dawn which gently stroke my eye,
On verdant flora, lying down I sigh.
But hark! White-tailed deers, squirrels; foxes play,
Bring magic moments; joy around my way.
A golden hue; the fawns are merry; gay,
My gosh! 'Tis great! I'll have such fun today!
And now at dusk, I sing a merry tune,
Then view the stars, beyond the crescent moon.

You, my Beloved. (Addressed to the Absolute ... to ALL at One with the Absolute)
You are in the shimmering moon, and the
Sweet veil of darkness answers Your call,
Even as the glistening stars whisper Your name.
I yearn to feel myself within You, breath
Kissing Breath, with lips converged, and
You, swallowing my uncomely darkness.
So many years I roamed this arid desert,
Searching for my oasis. If only I had found you
Then, I would not have experienced such loneliness.
Now that we can finally embrace, Your
Burning flame is a living balm, a fine wine
Of ecstasy, for my once sodden soul.
Why did it take so long to see Thy lustred rays?
Why couldn’t I find the golden key, to unlock
The immaculate secrets, of Your Hearts beauty?
I guess it was meant to be today, as my longing
Eyes gaze; my cheeks smile, even while the zephyrs
Soothe my Spirit, and camellias dance, to celebrate
The magnificent Light that gave them opulence.
I lean forward, heels ascending this sacred foliage,
The silhouette of Thy form, my ultimate Redeemer,
Quintessentially to burn the fire of my Love,
Entering Your deep ocean of unspoken sweetness.
Some images bewilder my core with their brilliance.
Now my Heart sobs, cascading Your grandeur, weeping
Into the effulgence of another glorious dawn.
-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier29th August, 2021.
A Glorious Dawn
Wisdom from the Master
"When Peace is multiplied, Truth is multiplied.
When Truth is multiplied, Love, is multiplied.
When Love, is multiplied, God, is multiplied." - Sri Chinmoy
"O Bible, the Saviour has taken away my sins,
Will you not take away,
My little, little worries, at least?" - Sri Chinmoy
My state at dawn
White clouds scatter the heavens, streaming a shimmering, descending Light. Silence whispers a Peace, carried by light zephyrs, messengers of Love, waltzing with the verdure of foliage below.
I sit in repose, my mind calm, serene, the body made still by the power of an inner sweetness, swimming in my soul. My breath spins in delight, readjusting to a new vintage wine supernal, blissfully singing in my being and laughing with God.
