Blazing saddles, the movie

Blazing saddles, the movie

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
