Mary, The Mother of God

This poem expresses longing … ecstasy for the Absolute, the perennial Source from which all spring, live and have their Being. Some call this Consciousness … Spirit … Self, Allah … we in the esoteric world and God-Souls of the Highest, generally speak of it as Love.

Love is that all-pervasive Silence … (Existence, Consciousness and Bliss), projecting Itself from the deepest Absolute, to sound … form … time …what we know as Creation. It is the same One Source, not two, manifesting in myriad ways from the Highest to the lowest and back again, the same infinite stream.

There are three kinds of poets. The ordinary poets, the great poets and the Seer-poets. The Seer-poet envisages the infinite, acting as a conduit or beacon; a stream of God through which the beauty and grandeur of Her realms can be expressed …if.

The Seer-poet enters our hearts with a vision of splendour, pageantry and Light, painting a calligraphy of flowers, as he calls “Come! Come!” Let us dance in the forest with our Queen.”

The Seer-poet is used essentially by the Divine, and he is conscious of this, weaving Love’s celestial magic to paint an abiding satisfaction; an unspoken Peace-Delight, on the canvas of the Soul.

Come! Let us fly, fly, and fly on the Wings of Love, as this message calls, calls, and calls from high above. (Taken and paraphrased marginally, from a poem by my Spiritual Mentor Sri Chinmoy).

Flames of Love

love-has-made-my-memory-fail-today-a-dedication-to-ruby-jean-fuller

The resplendence of the sun soothes my Spirit,

Its golden rays replenishing the Soul.

Today I’m inebriated with the wine of Thy beauty,

And my Heart wants to worship,

The fresh garland of roses that You sent.

But in my sweet state of intoxication,

I blew out the candles instead.

My cute Petal, Your Mercy, I beseech.

The red flames of my longing burns with aspiration;

I see only You, where ever I turn my eyes.

I lie awake, when I’m really meant to be asleep;

Toss and turn, under the heaviest sedation.

I feel no hunger, whene’er I’m meant to eat,

And like the shot arrow seeing only its target,

You are the sole Singer, lighting up this quivering Heart.

Playing the Guzeng (Chinese Zither)

Maestro Musician, string

The delicate strands of Thy symphony;

Let me blend, swaying and dancing,

To the eloquence of Thy lipped erudition,

Penetrating the essence of my core.

Ah! How I yearn for You, O Seamstress,

Stitching within Your immaculate tapestry,

Burning with the enchanted fire of Your Delight.

Today I’m drunk with Love,

And for whatever reason, my memory fails.

Charmed Athena, I’m overwhelmed and mesmerised,

By Your ineffable Bliss of the Beyond.

Glad you do. Use this as great teacher. Everything is transcient...fleeting... except LOVE.

Clive Williams from Jamaica on January 10, 2018:

I am good manatita44. Missed her writings though

manatita44 (author) from london on January 10, 2018:

She is happily in love, Bro. Good on her. How are you? Thank you so Much!

Clive Williams from Jamaica on January 10, 2018:

A very charming, pensive and relaxing piece. I haven't heard Ruby in a long time though.

manatita44 (author) from london on November 05, 2016:

Yes, I noticed. thank you, Ann. Interestingly, my neighbour is doing the same. He is trying to build an extra room for his daughter about to graduate. Hope you finish soon.

Ann Carr from SW England on November 05, 2016:

No the house isn't finished; probably not before Christmas. However, weekends are mostly at home so I try to catch up as much as possible. Doing well today!

Ann

manatita44 (author) from london on November 05, 2016:

Thanks Ann,

I hear all kinds of poetry in Public. It is truly a vast subject. But above is how the Seers tend to put or describe it. We do not hear much of the Keats, Blake and Shakepeare style any more. Modern poetry is entertaining and sometimes pleasing, but lack the grace, eloquence, ethereal or esoteric feel of the poetry of old.

You're on a roll today. Is the house finished? thank you so much?

Ann Carr from SW England on November 05, 2016:

Ruby is also one of my favourites here on HP. She writes well and over a gamut of subjects.

This is a beautiful subject and I too was interested in the different types of poets.

manatita, I had no idea you had done that. I'm very involved in a flash fiction challenge that involves a great deal of time in reviewing the stories of other participants. I've tried to be here as much as I can, but I'm afraid I missed your poem. I will go find it now. Much thanks in advance of reading.

manatita44 (author) from london on August 08, 2016:

Hi Bro, so happy with your heartfelt and excellent words. I'm essentially a Seer-poet. I can do most things, but I'm here really to inspire; to serve; to elevate....if I can be of service to a fellow-seeker than I feel humbled by the experience.

I have another poem dedicated to you here. Last time I looked you had not seen it. A bit different though. I vary sometimes, to avoid too much repetition. Give me a critical appraisal when you see it. Gratitude.

Chris Mills from Traverse City, MI on August 08, 2016:

I just popped in for a second read of this beautiful poetry. It calms the soul.

manatita44 (author) from london on August 08, 2016:

Deb, you have my sympathies. Lots of work this. I wish you much fortitude and continuous Light from within.

Shauna, some very sweet words from you. Appreciations.

Shauna L Bowling from Central Florida on August 08, 2016:

Manatita, you honor our Hub friends with such depth and beauty. You are gifted, my friend.

Deb Hirt from Stillwater, OK on August 08, 2016:

I'm working on my masters degree in ornithology. Between working full time, doing my column, and my photography, as well as processing it, there IS no time.

manatita44 (author) from london on August 07, 2016:

Thank you so much Deb for your lovely words. Not writing these days? I'll have a look. Stay blessed.

Deb Hirt from Stillwater, OK on August 07, 2016:

Wonderful work, dear friend! As I envision why is in my beyond, I fathom that not much will change for my peaceful heart in what I have been given in the here and now. A lovely tribute.

manatita44 (author) from london on July 21, 2016:

Worthy indeed! Thank you so much, Frank.

Frank Atanacio from Shelton on July 21, 2016:

A wonderful dedication to a worthy hubber bravo my friend

manatita44 (author) from london on July 18, 2016:

Yes. Lets Not forget that she is creating more beacons for the seniors. My guruji would be very proud of her. Thank you so much!

Gypsy Rose Lee from Daytona Beach, Florida on July 18, 2016:

A most deserving tribute. Ruby is wonderfully creative and talented. Always enjoy her hubs here.

manatita44 (author) from london on July 17, 2016:

Thank you, Eric. She's great!! Thank you also for your kind sentiments and your very last sermon too. Much love to you and family.

Surabhi, in some ways you are like Venkatachari, M, a very nice and virtuous Soul. You show a great respect and tremendous admiration for my work. Jai Ram! Hari Ram; Jai Ganesh! Om Shanti! Guruji's kripa be with you always ...

Surabhi Kaura on July 17, 2016:

What a lovely message on Peace and Love. Exceptionally delivered and well-received! The videos are peaceful as well, and so is the voice, eh :) Radhaswami.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on July 17, 2016:

Lovely. By a favorite of mine to a favorite of mine. Sublimely written and presented. Thank you.

manatita44 (author) from london on July 17, 2016:

Thank you, my sweet Ruby. I would like to do the poem I presented to you as well, but it's not on video. Another time perhaps, when those more skilled in this area have the time. Thank you so much for reading. Do you know how both Mary's are? Tell me by e-mail if you do. Higher thoughts and blessings. Much Love.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on July 17, 2016:

The background music adds beauty to your words, spoken so eloquently. Thank you for a beautiful dedication. I am blessed to be among your friends in this community we call Hubville. Hugs...

manatita44 (author) from london on July 17, 2016:

Thank you, Bill. Appreciated.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on July 17, 2016:

Ruby is one of my oldest friends here on HP, so I'm happy to be here celebrating her lovely and loving spirit. Ruby, you are a class act, my friend, and I'm proud to call you a friend.

manatita44 (author) from london on July 17, 2016:

To Cam: Lol. You're very discerning as you have noticed that I left out the other two types. Chuckle. I can hear Bill teasing me, telling me he falls within the other two, but as we know, he is an awesome writer. Just a passing share.

Yes, I have seen your other two and in fact was going to visit them soon as well as Rasma's. So glad I'm home today. Should have gone to a spiritual celebration with friends but stayed home. Still, I managed three great poems between yesterday and today and may put one up later.

As always I thank you for your kind comments and yes, a nice way forward, that of reading your work. I want to do more. Thank you so much, my brother. Much Love.

manatita44 (author) from london on July 17, 2016:

You are generally first, my dear Brother. So kind of you! Are you writing these days? Rest assured that I value your input highly and commend you for your intuitive insights. Sai Ram!

Chris Mills from Traverse City, MI on July 17, 2016:

Thanks for sharing about the three kinds of poets and centering on the seer-poet. Loved the poem, especially this: "But in my sweet state of intoxication,

I blew out the candles instead."

Your reading was very powerful. My latest story has video of me reading, but I have a long way to go doing that well. Thanks for the good start to a Sunday.

Venkatachari M from Hyderabad, India on July 17, 2016:

Beautiful and inspiring. Love is the Supreme Being or God whatever we call it. The videos are also nice and soulful. Thanks for sharing.
