" If you are bathed in God's forgiveness-Light,

Then no dust of the earth,

Will be able to cling to you." -Sri Chinmoy

Indigo blue Light

A Free Verse Sonnet

She smiles; her soft cheeks glistening in the ether.

Her aura emanates a spectacle of grandeur.

Sweetening the robe of tenderness in her dance,

She waltzes to the cadences of whispering winds.


Her breath kisses my soul, tugging at the Love responsible,

For keeping the symphony of this intimacy alive.

I watch with intrigue, as her indigo pillars melt,

Tilting her natural elegant glow. Her mystery

Draws me inwards, immersed in the intensity of rapport.


Burn! Burn! Sweet candle!

Peel away the shutters of my mind.

Let the rays of thy beauty energise,

The sweet solemnity of the Heart, cascading

Its lustrous splendour, into the profundity of my Spirit.


-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier, 3rd May, 2018.

Wisdom-Quote from Hafiz

"Light will Someday Split You Open

Little by little, You will turn into Stars.

You will become so Free In a Wonderful,

Secret and Pure Love That Flows

From a Conscious, One-Pointed, Infinite Light." -Hafiz

O Light, my illumining Light
