Let My Words Bloom in the Windows of Thy Soul
Let my Words Bloom in The Windows of Thy Soul
For millennia, I took a lot,
Gave a lot; sold a lot.
At last, I have nothing to sell,
Naught to give or take.
I offer my Heart in service,
Like the falling rain; a ray of sunshine.
As the rain glistening on fertile soil;
The sun surrendering its sustenance and hope,
Let my words bloom,
In the windows of thy soul like flowers.
Let them light up the fire of the Heart’s Love,
Arousing its ceaseless flame,
To awaken the innate stillness in thy core.
Manatita, The Lantern Carrier, 4th November, 2017.
I am a sojourner, a wayfarer
Partaking in an invisible web of stories,
In silent conversation.
O pain, O adversity! My life! My lustre!
You chisel my dark doubts and allay my fears,
Only so that I can breathe again.
You chip at my insecurities,
Shining your sunbeams in my darkness,
While pointing me to your northern star.
In this duality called struggle,
My Light and my shadows,
Good and evil I deposit,
In this bank of owed and paid debts,
Until my breath becomes Your symphony and I dance on the wings of Love.
-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 29th October, 2017.
Travelling and serving
Are you a fan of these two birds of hope?
