My Heart burns like fire;

I long to share its flame.

O seeker! Bring me the Chalice of thy quest,

For Love beats like a drummer in my soul.

My cup overflows, with the sweetness

Of a thousand rhapsodies, each drop

An eloquent melody, from the symphony of Love.

How I long to share its flame!

Come! Come! My sweet lavender-flower,

To taste the vintage reserved,

Only for Lovers of this Chateau.

Only the fragrant, knows the mood of the inebriate.

This stellar wine, is only for him who dares,

To enter the garden, of a million flares.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 20th May 2018.

~ Awakening The Inner Light ~

Chateau of lovers

“Come, come, whoever you are. 

Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving. 
It doesn't matter. 
Ours is not a caravan of despair. 
come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times.
 Come, yet again , come , come.” -Rumi

Wisdom from the Master


Burning Love

Is this sweet intimacy and longing necessary?

    Lol. You are so right Alicia.

    A stunning Palace of sorts. Here there's more than enough wine for Lovers on this sojourn ... lovers of the Way. Thank you so much!

    Lol Miz.

    The Heart burns with longing and Love and no, no barbecue. Strange for a veggie like me. Ha ha.

    Thank you for such a nice sentiment.

    It is usually the lower chakras that burn, and the heart experiences either longing or fulfillment. Are you sure it wasn't last night's barbecue? Just kidding.Your poetry is nothing short of amazing! Such a way with words. You are unmatched, my friend.

    Frank your understanding of my poetry is supreme!

    I smile when you say that you are not into religion and spirituaiity. Your Heart is vast and full of Light!

    Again, just today I read your touching sentiment to Patricia, I believe.

    You could not have understood my poetry without Spirituality. God bless your noble life.

    Your first line was 'cool!'

    The title is so eye catching ‘My heart is on Fire’. What a masterpiece, you are such blessed poet who writes poetry so amazingly.

    Loved the quote from Rumi and your Master.

    This is very necessary sometimes to heat your soul and heart up!

    Bless you and your family brother.

    Very clever piece you wrote combining references to wine and love. You are a master of poetry! The video at the end of your poem seemed very fitting.
