Kindness. Friday's Inspiration 3. A Soulful Offering to Devika Primic

Updated on March 9, 2020

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



Soft, tender, intimate … as delicate as the butterfly, is she.

Silent, reaching, gentle; elusive as a child’s smile, yet firm,

Like Life’s sweet caress in adversity. She sits in our sanctum,

Awaiting the Heart’s prod, like strands of silk, to the cocoon.

Empathy and concern are her synergies, like flowers,

To the bees and butterflies, nestling in harmony, sharing the

Splendour of colorful spring. Her Light, a taste of sunset

On scarlet horizons, emanating the garden of the soul.

She paints the colour of rainbows on my cheeks,

As each new dawn, reminds me of her sweet scent –

A redolence of human jasmines -- reaching out in solace

To my afflictions, with deeds of Love Divine.

Kindness – like the colorful moth, soaring in the atmosphere --

Offering freely the magic of its hue; like rose emitting its

Charms without conditions, so too, you come dancing in our Hearts --

A lustred moonlight, a remedial balm from some good soul, who feel

The need, like the elegance to the swan, to do the needful.

Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 6th March, 2020



Wisdom from the Master

"The very nature of kindness is to spread,

if you are kind to others,

Today they will be kind to you,

And tomorrow to somebody else." - Sri Chinmoy

    Since I have found another kindred Spirit, I will write this way: I strive to be an instrument of Something Higher -- the same Light reflected in my brothers and sisters/mankind. So wise of you to notice!

    Selfless service kisses and indeed has kissed my soul numerous times. Our Lord is so compassionate! Jai Ram!

    Beautiful truth you write Manatita44 . It's amazing once a person opens the door to feeling another person's essence. If you feel there pain immediately you cry with them and then reach your arms out to comfort them. Also when you feel someones beauty in there essence it is like a fresh breath of air that kisses your soul.

    Very sweet, Lorna.

    Very sweet. I have a vast array of 800 poems, but yes, whenever I use a relatable topic, then people love them very much.

    Last night I read at a famous venue. I gave them a choice: Mother's Love or Knife Crime. They chose the later which I read, but I felt sad afterwards.

    I have devotional poems and regular Sonnets of such beauty!

    My appreciations.


    Natirally I love people to read my work and many of you really do. Your contribution is extremely beautiful!

    I think kindness is very important and we need to see more of it. I loved your poem; it was so beautiful. Devika is so sweet and you see that in her writing. This is a fitting poem for her and God bless you for always making us (Hubpages writers) feel so speical. God bless you, Manatita.

    I surely do like Devika. This is fitting of her. I figure we have been friends for over 5 years now. I like the angle from which she comes at issues. Thank you for a wonderful piece to a wonderful woman.

    Kindness is a "way" to me. Love shown through kindness maybe be the best showing of all.

    Beautiful poem and a rich tribute to Devika, a dear friend and a fellow writer.

    I have known her since I joined HubPages.

    Kindness is perhaps the most valuable quality of a human being, and you defined it so beautifully in a poetic way.

    I loved the words of wisdom from Shri Chinmoy.

    Thank you and happy day to you.
