Odes to Fotini, Ioannis Arvanitis (Sean Dragon's) Wife. Tuesday's Inspiration 2, a Soulful Offering
"To Her whose life-story is purifying,
To Her whose life breathes purity,
To Her who is verily purity embodied,
To Her our repeated salutations." -Swami Abedhananda
Ode to Fotini
I saw a Yogini dressed all in white;
Not as the Seer visions, but a
Gentle breath upon the breeze.
Pure, Unsullied … immaculate,
Fotini’s piety and honour shone
Upon the light winds of Heidelberg.
Devotion par excellence, Surya carries
Your banner of Light – a sweet sacrifice
For your husband’s sojourn;
A diamond raiment, for your children’s joy.
O song-bird of the soul, onwards you march,
Ceaselessly steering the golden boat of Love –
The unparallel lustre of the Spirit. Lantern says:
“I salute your Heart’s radiance and your gratitude flames.”
-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 14th October, 2018.
Ode to The Cadence of Dao: The Cosmic Prelude
Good memories, will always be rewarded;
Each song is a tapestry, on the calligraphy of Being.
I’m amazed by the rhythm of grasshoppers;
Respond to the dazzling ballet, of sunflower twirls.
When the moon wanes; lovers lament the loss of the
Nights lustre; the twinkling stars, gradually fade away.
Yet my Heart continues to pen the joys of happiness,
While cradling the eloquence of Love.
Deep and ceaseless longings, like rings of fire,
Agonises the Spirit; both day and night.
Waves of Light push forth within my soul.
Cadence is the symphony of the Cosmos, says Lantern.
String quartets soaring in all directions,
Blending with the melody of enduring Love.
-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier
Mother's Loving Sacrifice
"I hear the melody of Love,
Spilling its sacred drops-concern,
On the river of anxieties created,
By the naivete of its children.
Of such is mother's sacrifice for her own, very own." -Manatita
The ideal of womanhood
What's your choice?
