A Free Verse Sonnet

She spins, like one lost in the darkness,

Her waves lashing against the belly of the night.

Unconscious of the way she rolls,

She skates on the foreheads of the innocent,

To assuage her bleeding wounds.


O vast sky, I'm like a bird without feathers!

Where is the Light in my darkness?

This road of ignorance is strewn with shadows,

As such I do not see ...


A lost wayfarer, clutching at the abyss,

She moves forward, crashing and tumbling

With the pendulum of life.


O Love, I'm face-to-face with my nemesis-night,

Remove this obstacle, to my abode of Light.


Manatita, The Lantern Carrier, 12th June 2018

Quote from the Master

"Ignorance is an enemy, even to its owner. Knowledge is a friend, even to its hater. Ignorance hates knowledge because it is too pure. Knowledge fears ignorance because it is too sure." -Sri Chinmoy
