Invocation to Spring


The aroma of roses, dahlias and marigolds,

Permeate the stillness of my breath,

Heralding the Heart’s affinity for Love.


Within this enchanting pageantry of colours,

I hold court with a symphony of lovers,

Designing a supernal spectacle,

In this orchard of translucent Light.

Source

Orchids, tulips, daisies and hyacinths,

Unfurl their magical grandeur,

Embraced by the radiant lustre of the sun,

Rinsing the heavens with smiles of Joy.


My soul ascends to the eloquent chants

Of sparrows, cockatoos and canaries,

As the daffodils dance beneath my feet.


The turbulent jungle of the mind,

Is now completely silent.

I breathe new life from another virgin dawn;

In the presence of lavenders, I dance with Delight.


A snow-white newness, is the life-breath of happiness,

Waltzing within the child’s purity, like golden flames.

Come, my Beloved, the starlight whispers to the moon.


-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier, 19th March, 2018

Quote from Kabir

“There is dew
on these poems in the morning,
and at night a cool breeze may rise from them.

In the winter they are blankets, in the summer a place to swim.

I like talking to you like this. Have you moved
a step closer?

Soon we may be
kissing.”
Kabir

      Even if I was to be stuck in the icy part of God's beautiful globe, your words would bring spring to the cold unforgiving darkness. This is enchanting:

      Orchids, tulips, daisies and hyacinths,

      Unfurl their magical grandeur,

      Embraced by the radiant lustre of the sun,

      We are expecting an ice storm in the morning here. I think dear brother, I'll read this again to warm me up.

      Much love,

      Tim

      manatita44, Your lavish complementation and the uncompromising blessing toward your many friends is a certain pledge of a double blessing coming back to you. No wonder you are constantly creating and generously giving.

      Yes, of course. I assumed it, but it should have been stated. "I breathe new life from another virgin dawn." Each day is a new beginning, a new experience in the wonderful world around us.
