Love: The Sacred Kiss Re-kindled
Each pearl of rain, is pregnant with meaning;
The drops upon the lillies garments,
Will give you water, if you seek.
A fettered heart cannot break free,
If it is bound by strong desires. Yet there
Is an inner wakefulness, that stirs the soul.
This is not the wine that dull the senses! I have
Had the sugarcane juice, that makes me drunk.
Drink! For the aroma of its breath,
Springs forth from a celestial vineyard.
The Light of the moon caresses a flame,
That cascades its grandeur in my Heart.
O Love, You are this sacred kiss re-kindled,
That I have long since been yearning for… come!

Wisdom-quote from the Master
"I have bravely forgiven all my yesterdays,
So that today I can cheerfully run,
Towards my destined goal." - Sri Chinmoy
"...I shall build a temple in each human Heart;
I shall become the sacrificial fire,
On the alter of each human life." -Sri Chinmoy
Real People Beneath the Faces
Come! Sweet flower; cute garland of roses,
Console the real people beneath the faces.
Our moods, resentments … demeanours,
Are but expressions of our Joys and sorrows.
We wish to be loved, like you.
Come! O moon, O stars, O sun, O rainbow,
Let your Light radiate. There are no strangers here.
My Chinese, Japanese … African friends,
My American, English … refugee friends,
Are awaiting thy robes of translucent Light.
Come! My virtual-reality, internet friends,
Let our Spirits’ dance together,
Singing the songs of the Heart’s longing.
This is what real people beneath the faces do.
-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 10th September, 2018.
