Mi Dulce Luna (My Sweet Moon)

She’s immaculate, mi dulce luna, my sweet moon.

Nothing random here – not a name lightly chosen

For such a celestial Queen. Enchanting in the way she

Looks at me; Her iridescent beams, Her gracefulness

And poise, like a swan in flight, whispering to the

Silvery clouds; Her smile tugging at the Citadel of the sun.

Her beauty excels Helen of Troy… Nefertiti; for She’s

Adorned by the radiant colours of Love Itself.


Empress of Light, elegance; an epitome of virtues --

All laced within the Grandeur of my Shyama. Do you hear the

Way she sings, like song-bearers gifted by cadences of the soul?

Can you smell the scent of Her laughter, touch Her softness,

Tenderness and charisma? Magical is the sweetness

Exuding from her flute-like diction; of Her waltz-like

Movements, like a ballerina of pinnacle-height; of all that

Is magnificent and grandiose, like flowers; like the Taj Mahal.


She moves like poetry in motion, draws from the eternal

Magna of the soul, like the melody of a harp. Yet She’s the

Melody … She’s is the Harp. Like a Phoenix in flight Her psalms fly,

Serene, yet emotive, vibrant, powerful and immortal. Her evocative

Pieces stirs the Heart, enticing the lyrical drums of its arterial beat.


Yes, She’s bewildering, because I gaze at Her lustre with

Wonder … the exquisite and amazing beauty of Her rays,

For She has made them enchantingly haunting and magically

Visible --a delectable and culinary feast, for the taste-buds of the Spirit.

God does not Love me for my mind's brilliance.

He only loves me for my Hearts radiance."

Beautiful and heart-touching quote, Manatita. You have described the love and beauty of the moon exquisitely. Few people can feel the taste-buds of the spirit. And those who can feel are phenomenal beings.

Stat safe and healthy...

Good morning Linda C,

I was concerned for you! So happy to see you! Much Love and gratitude for your kind sentiment.

Misbah, you're becoming a Rumi fan, like me. Keep it up. Rumi wrote 60,000 poems and the only God-soul I know who was far more prolific is my Guruji. A loving and heartfelt sentiment from you as always. Salaam!

Rosina,

Thank you my dear Rosina. Always a pleasure. Glad you continue to do well. May Allah continue to guide your life and bless your loving Heart.

Umesh, good morning. So happy to hear from you! Sukriya. Hari Om Tat Sat!!

Rosina S Khan on July 08, 2021:

Lovely poetry, Manatita. The mystical love of the moon is beautifully expressed all throughout. Loved Sri Chinmoy's quotes. There is a lesson to learn from them always. Thanks for sharing.

Misbah Sheikh from The World of Poets on July 08, 2021:

So true, Surrender is the goal of life. Each and every word you have written is so sweet and beautiful.

¡muy, muy dulce! yo amo las cosas dulces. Me gusta la luna, es dulce. Me gustan los corazones porque Dios vive allí. (Very very sweet! I love sweet things. I like the moon, it's sweet. I like hearts because God lives in there. )

"The lovers of God never run out of patience, for they know that time is needed for the crescent moon to become full."

~Rumi

Blessings to you, dear brother
