Manatita is an esteemed author living in London, UK. He writes spiritual books, flash fiction and esoteric poetry, his favourite genre.

I Spin on an Axis of Loneliness and Fear

Lying in despair on the bed of my sorrows,

I pray for the Light, to dry my tears.

Gone is the nightingale that calms the Heart;

I spin on an axis of loneliness and fear.


Steeped in a winter of isolation,

My world of dreams resonates,

To the drums of fearful thoughts;

I remain locked in an agony of longing.


Lost in an abyss of discontentment,

I have gone deaf to the melody of the lark.

The ghosts of my past yesterdays,

Still linger on the promise of my tomorrows.


Immersed in a world of shadowy nights,

My soul weeps; yearns for the sunrise, of another virgin dawn.


Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 26th, November, 2018

The Energy of Your Collective Love

I hear the magic of the Master’s flute;

I float and soar, like an eagle, on Elysian skies.

The blue bells of victory resonate;

My soul-bird dances, to the inner melodies of Love.


Feeling the thrills of an internal rhapsody,

I become mute to the externals.

The songs of daybreak fade away;

I’m now fully adorned in robes of Light.


Aye, my seeker-friends,

It was the energy of your collective Love,

That drew me, Into this inner stream of Stillness.

I sing and dance in the grove of a thousand secrets,

As the bird of my Heart whispers,

Into the vast emptiness of Silence.


- Manatita 1th December, 2018.

Awakening The Inner Light

For The Spirit of Creation

Into the vastness of Infinity the ocean roars.

The wings of eloquent voices,

Soar above the boisterous waters,

Emitting a splash quite soothing to their ears.


Whispering to the Cosmos,

The moon sheds its light like fireflies.

Twinkling stars jump tipsily at their banquets,

While the rays of heaven glitters.


The waves curl and dance,

Pulling the indigo blue of Paradise;

Kissing the lap of a bewildering Love,

For the Spirit of creation.


Doves and eagles continue to sing,

Echoing the astounding ballad, of the magic of Love.


-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 20th December, 2018

        Ha ha, I think I suggested to you that I had or was thinking of putting two together like yours, albeit in a different way.

        When I read them in public, insha'llah, they will be read as one poem.

        Yes, bro. I will look out for the Light. I will see it mystically perhaps on December 31st in our Temple in Heidleberg and once I came out at 0030 hrs, I will also see it across the Neckar river with the German fire-cracker celebrations.

        I love this thing when we publish similar Hubs in the same period. It gives me hope that I am on the Good Path. I don't speak of the similar quality of course! Yours, are the poems of a Master, and mine, are the poems of a student, not even disciple. But I can see the Light and follow. I Love you and your Higher work, my Brother. Thank you for being by my side.

        I wish the Light of the Star to make your Christmas magical!

        Work on the Path ...work off the Path. I'll be looking at retirement perhaps 2019.

        Thanks for the computer tip. Having breakfast in cafe, then I'll go home to rest. Saw both the hygienist and dentist a.m.

        Aww, I see. Have a good rest and happy holidays, Manatita. Seeing too much blue light can cause one to lose sleep. You can take a break from the computer screen sometimes. See you.

        Hahaha. Yes Manatita. It could be feminine too. I missed out the he or she inserts. I'm happy to see you too! :)

        Every visit to HP is like a Christmas present. Yeah, I'm not so busy now. How about you...how is life? Haha..

        My dear Beloved it is always a joy to see you. You have done well. So this soul could be feminine as well you know. Could be any one.

        How are you? Hope that work is good but winding down. Thank you so much! Merry Christmas!

        Hello Manatita, the first poem does reflect the title, loneliness and fear. I picture in my head the persona having a sleepless night on his bed, under the blanket, desiring Light when he himself has blocked out the Light haha. The second poem shows that the persona is 'fully adorned in robes of Light' therefore 'mute to the externals.' Finally, you have done a good job in showing the beauty of the Creations...the ocean, the moon and and so on.

        I love the contrast between the first poem and the second one. The last poem is a lovely conclusion to the sequence.

        Always happy to see you bro. Come as often as you like. Guruji is my inspiration, true, but I have not used his work here, I don't think. The line is my creation, Bro. I like the word 'Elysian' which Guruji has used, funny enough. I also like to 'soar', which again Guruji has also used. Some of my language comes from the mystical but the way that they are put together, comes from me.

        That was a spontaneous piece in another Hub and I liked and changed it into a Sonnet. Love you, my Brother.

        Sorry but I came back like reading Sri Chimnoys works. We basque in the shared faith of gratefulness.

        This one resonated with me: "I float and soar, like an eagle, on Elysian skies."

        OK I will go back to my mundane job.

        Thanks Mark.

        I really love how you see this. The fire of suffering is another candle of the Divine. Even while you and I may be having a great Christmas, some good souls may have a different experience.

        King of Kings! Who can tell Thy secret ways! Who can fathom Thy innumerable mysteries?

        Thank you so much my Bro. Merry Christmas!

        Thanks Brother Eric.

        You say very beautiful things! I have had some daily practice. Only 36 years. Ha ha.

        God's willing I'll be on another retreat next Friday. This old 66 plus body is tired. I should stop working.

        Thank you for your friendship. Love to you and family. Merry Christmas!

        Manatita you are a learned one on your journey. You give me more light with every time I read you. I do not give or get gifts for Christmas. I turned that off years ago. Loved ones send me bobbles that decorate my office.

        But your gift of love and writing is a full time gift that keeps on giving. Blessed time to you.

        Life is a beautiful beast, a hybrid of sorts. No matter how pleasant life becomes, the beast is somewhere in the background rearing its unpleasant head. Poetry, too, is a beautiful beast. Much of its beauty comes from suffering.

        To write such beautiful pieces means that you are not doing very bad ... not bad at all.

        What a great sentiment Verlie. I was a bit worried about the despair of the first but spiritual teachers say they can also help.

        Thank you Verlie. Merry Christmas!

        Peace is indeed within. At times, I have come in contact with it but mostly disturbed. However, I mastering its direction to find it again when I am lost.

        Peace to you my friend.
