Paradise Lost; Paradise Regained, 3
I was once a drowning man,
Anchored in the quicksand of my own creation.
'Though the robe of the Light reached out to me,
I did not care to utilise its rays.
I ignored the gaze of the twilight moon,
Was dead to the magic of twinkling stars.
Cocooned in a world of shadows mundane,
I became lost in a labyrinth I built myself.
Down through the aeons of timeless time,
The Beloved protruded a dazzling Light.
I was saved by the descent of a glorious Love,
Stunning my Heart with its bewilderment.
My dark night of quick sand evaporates, absorbed
By a sweetness, stabbing my soul with its Delight. -Manatita

Gliding to the Pinnacle of Beauty
"Gliding to the pinnacle of beauty,
My ecstatic soul-bird dances,
Spreading its wings of Joy.
For it yearns to kiss the sweetness,
From the lips of the Unknowable." -Manatita
"Where sweetness is lacking, I'm not there." -Sri Chinmoy
Any reminders of sweetness? Which do you like most?
