When The Nazarene Returns

When the Nazarene returns, He will shine

With the Light of Heaven; the glory of

A trillion suns! Will I be ready?

His raiment will shine with the grandeur of Paradise,

His words a sacred homily, a million times more

Powerful! If they crucified Him then,

What will they do now? Will I be ready?

“Not now.” Me hear dem say. “Our sons are still at college.”

“My daughter is not yet married,” said another,

“And I still need grandchildren.”

Likes attract likes. A Garden of Love, will only

Entice beauty; the illustrious moon, only the divinity of

Twinkling stars. O Life, the Saviour has taken away my sins,

Will you not take away, my little, little worries, at least?

O Lantern, saved or not, always be careful what you

Ask for, as you may not be ready, for the fire of His Grace.

Opening Myself to You

Flowers dance in Spring to the symphony of the

Breeze, my breath sings with the wafts inside their

Charm, waltzing as Your purple-tinted lotus’s shine.

Just as these ‘cuties’ bloom and blossom, opening

Their Hearts to the pageantry of life, so too, I open

Myself to You, O Love, O my song-bird of glistening Light.

Aye, sweet Beauty, Your kaleidoscope of colours

Draw me inwards, my core intoxicated in trance,

Drinking the rays of Thy splendour.

Within and without, I feel the breath of Your

Golden robes, adorning my soul with excellence;

Soothing my pains with a tapestry of dazzling hues.

Aye, my soul weeps music; the canary of my Heart

Rejoices, soaked in a rhapsody of celestial wines.

- Manatita, The Lantern Carrier, 25th January, 2020


Wisdom for today by Manatita

The Absolute Alchemist, transforms everything with Love.

So when we send Love, in response to hate,

We become God'sl Alchemists.
