A crescendo of waves


Noises, Cantata 1 and 2

Cantata 1

Buzz; buzz … my wild thoughts run riot,

Pressing against a million worries, unsettling my mind.

Noises … the ear-shattering sounds of thunderbolts,

Breaks, like a crescendo of waves,

Splashing against this turbulent jungle.

Bulldog terriers run amok in dark riotous caves,

My world spins, like a bicycle, losing its control.

Cantata 2

Aye, Odysseus, the enchanting lure of the Sirens,

Is but a poor imitation of the melody of the soul.

Beat! Beat! Sweet Drummer. I flow with the Arias …

The sonatas; the symphonies …

Waltzing and floating in the Light of Love.

My calm, vacant and serene demeanour,

Resonates to the music, of a thousand flutes!

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier, 6th March, 2018.

But from world servitude." -Sri Chinmoy


Fear: Cantata 1 and 2

Fear: Cantata 1 and 2

Steeped in fear, I’m packed like sardines,

Still alive in the fisherman’s net.

The grey mists of darkness,

Permeates my saddened soul.

My anxieties are endless,

The nails on my fingers constantly clipped,

A grim way to encourage solace.

Fear: Cantata2

Sweet fear, you are my thorn of roses,

Dancing within the weeds of this stately orchard,

You mend my falcon wings,

Therefore, I can fly once more.

Soaring over the tulips and azaleas,

Insecurity embraces the Light and dance with Joy.

Manatita, 8th March 2018

Of my Beloved Supreme." -Sri Chinmoy
