My Winged Phoenix Ascends, Into The Gateways of Supernal Bliss. A Soulful Offering to Chitrangada Sharan


Manatita is an esteemed author living in London, UK. He writes spiritual books, flash fiction and esoteric poetry, his favourite genre.


Gazing into the breath of this evergreen Light,

A river of Joy embraced my Spirit.

My agony of longing now answered,

I bathed in the lustre of diamonds from heaven.

I saw the golden garlands of Love,

Anchored into the vessel of a vast stillness;

The elegance of the indigo moon above,

Dancing on an ocean of heavenly Delight.

Now soaked in a cushion of tenderness supreme,

My Heart wept with a Joy unspoken,

Pulling at the melody of song-birds,

Singing ecstatically, on the bosom of my Queen.

Bewildered by this speechless realm of glory,

My winged Phoenix ascends, to the gateways of supernal Bliss.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier.19th April, 2018.

-Awakening The Inner Light.


"Light, my wondrous Light!

The orchard blossoms with Thy Grace,

Emitting a tapestry of celestial splendour;

Sharing its sweet sacrificial aroma, with all." -Manatita


Wisdom-Quote from the Master

"Not a shallow love
But a deep love
Binds the world-citizens
Together." -Sri Chinmoy

More blessings.

Nikki Khan from London on April 23, 2018:

Ha ha,, I didn’t know that I commented before, It’s always a pleasure to comment on your insightful poetry.

Bless you!

Thank you, Nikki Ji

I knew that you had been before, but I do not see my response to you. So happy with your second visit and yes you had mentioned Guruji before. He is Indian, as you know, born in East Bengal and we are both proud of him.

Thank you so much! You have some sweet kids and a busy life, yet you make time for me. I highly appreciate this! Higher thoughts.

Nikki Khan from London on April 23, 2018:

A great offering to a beautiful lady Chitrangada Sharan!

She deserves such a wonderful tribute, loved the quote from your Master.

Bless you Bro!


manatita44 (author) from london on April 23, 2018:

Thanks Hari.

I read this quote of yours somewhere else, I believe. So it's awesome to offer for a second poem. By nature I try to make every word count.

" Prose: words in the best order.

Poetry: The best words in their best order." -Coleridge.

Hari Prasad S from Bangalore on April 22, 2018:

Amazing poem. The words like a game of scramble assemble together to make a great imagery.

Yes Dee.

A wonderful soul indeed! Thank you so much!

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on April 22, 2018:

Refreshingly soothed in the very first verse. So fitting for Chitrangada Sharan who seems so peaceful in her profile. Beautiful read.

manatita44 (author) from london on April 22, 2018:

And to you too, Rasma. God bless.

Gypsy Rose Lee from Daytona Beach, Florida on April 22, 2018:

Most wonderful and inspirational tribute to a very talented and deserving soul like Chitrangada. Many blessings to you.

manatita44 (author) from london on April 21, 2018:

Yes, my Sweet Chitrangada.

I know it without looking. Supreme Bliss/Delight. You pay me a great compliment and do justice to my poems. I write of heavenly, ethereal, lofty and sublime things.

Thank you so much for coming and for this truly high sentiment. Hari om!

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on April 21, 2018:

My heartfelt thanks and gratitude to you Manatita, for this beautiful poem!

I consider myself fortunate to be your friend, and reading the comments from fellow writer friends has really touched my heart. I want to thank them also, from the bottom of my heart.

Your poem makes me visualise, how one can feel in heaven. Only a person with a golden heart, can express so beautifully.

Your poems are refreshing and soothing to the soul, and this one is no different. Loved your pictures and video too.

Since you know many Hindi words, I am tempted to say that your poems provide ‘Paramanand.’ While ‘Happiness’ can be achieved by physical things, but ‘Paramanand’ is something different. It can bring a smile on your face, even when you are alone, because it makes the soul happy.

Thank you once again for this wonderful gesture, and Stay Blessed!

Thank you, Linda C.

It's an immortal bird. Appreciations.

Linda Crampton from British Columbia, Canada on April 20, 2018:

I've loved the symbolism of the phoenix for a long time. You've used it beautifully in your poem. As always, this is a lovely tribute to a writer.

manatita44 (author) from london on April 20, 2018:

Indeed Marlene.

What more can I say? Our Lord continue to bless your Heart and strengthen the soul.

Marlene Bertrand from USA on April 20, 2018:

This tribute is soothing and is perfect for Chitrangada who is a beautiful and peaceful person.

manatita44 (author) from london on April 20, 2018:

Indeed you are right Eric.

Indeed you are right. I'm feeling it right now. A soothing piece for sure.

Thanks Hari.

A great image from you. Appreciated.

manatita44 (author) from london on April 20, 2018:

Thank You,

Venkatachari Ji.

A beautiful soul indeed! Appreciate your fine sentiment.


Very sweet of you and very honoured. Naturally I use my Heart more with friends. If I write something despairing or sad then I generally won't dedicate it.

Actually, I lace the Monday Inspirations with spice and sugar. Lol. Thank you so much!

manatita44 (author) from london on April 20, 2018:

Thank you Li-Jen.

You are a very perceptive soul. Appreciations.

Venkatachari M from Hyderabad, India on April 20, 2018:

Another beautiful piece, my Bro.

Your transcendental poetry is really a feast for the heart and soul. This one is a good offering to Chitrangada.

Thank you for the nice inspirations.

Li-Jen Hew on April 20, 2018:

Hello Manatita. Sweet of you to dedicate this poem to Chitrangada Sharan. I can feel your devotion and the theme of supernatural Bliss. Thank you for sharing. :)

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on April 20, 2018:

Of all your writings, I believe I love your tributes most of all. You are a good man, Manatita, and it is an honor to be your friend.

love and blessings always

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on April 20, 2018:

What a wonderful and guiding spirit is Chitrangada.

Totally soothing. For some reason this reminds me that heaven is definitely on earth if we so decide.

Hari Prasad S from Bangalore on April 20, 2018:

Amazing poem. The words like a game of scramble assemble together to make a great imagery Bro.
