Online Hate, or the Human Condition? Friday's Inspiration 17

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



Online Hate. A Free-style Sonnet

Hate begins within, in the seed of night;

A lit candle will not manifest darkness;

A radiant flower, will only express the Light.

The searchlight of Love must light a path,

Into the minds of tangled webs. Online spite

May evoke disdain, yet its heart is the true

Citadel, that deals with searing pain.

It is safer and cleverer to shout from home,

Than to engage in a face to face at Sainsbury’s.

While the weak may never bully the strong,

The insecure will even attack their shadows!

True greatness reveals itself, in the solitude

Of those who Love. Opinions, opinions, opinions;

My thoughts run riot, as restless monkeys prance.

A Stairwell to Heaven


Merging my Breath, With a Magical Silence

Soft, soothing arias, call to my Heart,

Opening a stairwell to heavenly Love.

A pageantry of flowers garlands my soul;

I hear without ears and speak without tongue.

Into the portals of meandering hills, sanctity

Whispers to blossoms, revealing a lushness that calms

My Being. I gaze at a kaleidoscope of beauty, tugging at

The tears of my eye-lids, dripping the colours of joy.

Just yesterday, walking upon the Dales of

Derbyshire, I dreamt of fading summer --of

Rose-tinted autumn trees; of magenta leaves

In flight, cascading the sparkling rays of sunset.

Now I dine in a tapestry of perennial grandeur,

Merging my breath with a magical Silence.

Wisdom from the Master

"Everything in life is a choice."

"A mind of worry is simply a wasted life."

"Your present conditions, are the best possible ones, for your advancement."

"You have had an unpleasant experience

And you will not be happy, until you stop thinking about it." - Sri Chinmoy
