My Soul Sings to the Morning Sun. A Soulful Offering to my Brother Cam (Chris Mills) Kenya's Delight 7


Manatita is an esteemed author living in London, UK. He writes spiritual books, flash fiction and esoteric poetry, his favourite genre.



Hope, my hope, lifting my veil of darkness, you soar like the eagle, to immeasurable heights. The kernels of your orchids shoot upwards, like the ascent of the Spirit of man, blooming and ever blossoming to new promises ... possibilities that take wings, on another virgin dawn.

The spring-summer roses of a once wint'ry Heart, sacrifices their redolence, awakening the joy of a magenta-tinted autumnal beauty, into an illustrious pearl.

Hope, my hope, a beacon of vision and song-bird of the soul, you gave me wings to fly, into the realms of infinitude ... the joy of the Beyond.


My Soul Sings to the Morning Sun

The ultraviolet rays of the heavens pierce my skin.

The sky is a tapestry of brilliant blue, with a segmented

Canopy of clouds, dispersing into the distant light.

The tree with red leaves, still draws my attention;

How I wish I knew its name!

Beneath the various canopies of this terraced garden,

I hear the transient chirping of starlings,

Whistling their symphonies of gratitude.

My Heart melts like sugar,

Immersed In a river of copious Love.

Absorbed in this sweet tabernacle of beauty,

I dream of the glories of hope,

Adorned within the Spirit of the morn.

The verdant hue of the environment responds;

And my soul sings to the temple of the sun.

The guitar-chords of palm trees waltz,

To the airplane gliding towards an alcove of vastness,

Its protective veil, shrouding an indigo of luminous Light.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 17th May, 2018.

You are in my Heart. So much so that I had not realised that you had not seen this poem.

Are you busy with the dog? Lol.

'Nuff respect to you for coming and wishing you, in tbe words of my Guru:

"Ask not for a lighter burden, but for a stronger heart." -Sri Chinmoy. Lovingly, of course.

Chris Mills from Traverse City, MI on May 20, 2018:

Manatita, once again, my despair at being so far behind in reading here on HP has kept me from finding these beautiful poems for two days. My apologies.

I know of no one else who could create such vivid images as this:

"My Heart melts like sugar,

Immersed In a river of copious Love."

Nature is the greatest teacher.

Thank you for this "Soulful Offering." I was delighted to read it.

manatita44 (author) from london on May 20, 2018:

Haha. Your are so kind to me my brother. They just come now, but I cannot exclude the influence of Meditation, neither the Seers I admire. Much Love this Sunday.

Frank Atanacio from Shelton on May 20, 2018:

Manatita, your words alone lighten the path to such wonderful poetry.. it's amazing that you make it look so easy.. yet I know it's a task.. you are talent... period...:)

Hope is a streak of Light which comes from God and a messenger of the soul.
