Words … they can feel like a scalpel,

An epitome of despair,

Or cute little angels and beams of Light.

Sometimes, they enter our core like darts,

Or shine like magic lanterns,

At the apertures of Heaven.

Words, orchestrated by a gifted Wordsmith,

Revive the presence of scented Keora,

On the wet shrubs of a Bard,

Unfurling a silken tassel,

Of glory and grace.


I hear the sweet humming of nightingales;

The enchanting songs of redbreasts;

They remind me of a tapestry of eloquence:

The immersive sublimity of psalms unparalleled.

O Lover! Your glorious embrace,

Shines with the rays of moonbeams,

And I am stunned with amazement.

By Your charismatic charm.


When I listen to the cadences of my fragrant Angel,

I hear the melody of minstrels;

The songs of golden showers, falling upon the wind,

Flooding and nurturing my inner Temple.

It is then that I pull the moon down,

Which shines like a beacon in my darkness.

Seraphim’s, sunbeams and twinkling stars,

Kiss my breath endearingly with their Delight,

And my being thrills with an ecstatic pulse,

Celebrating the splendour of inner rhapsody.

Sweet Love! I felt the depth of Your supernal rain,

Dowsing the very flames of Hades,

Your words floating on the windows of my Soul.

I soared, like an eagle, to the edge of a resplendent Light,

Floating in ecstasy, on the crest of a scarlet-crimson-hued horizon,

Bathing and dancing, with Your naked silhouette, my Queen.


Come into my Heart, O Lover,

Let Your lustred beauty continue to glimmer,

Even in my abyss of despair,

Your words, like velvet glue, sealing the cracks

Of my inner Sanctum,

Carrying a carousel of beautiful Lamps;

Shining with the opulence of Silence;

Offering an unspoken sweetness to the Soul.

So many cadences in life

Thank you, Deb. Thank you. You seem to have written on another Hub which disappeared. I'll look again tomorrow. Thank you so much! Good night.

The song of nature can only be heard by a certain few, and those that do so, have been given a gift from heaven

Oh, dear man, I am so very touched with the exquisite poem you created just for me. My tears of joy and gratitude overflow and my heart is complete. This gesture of friendship is priceless to me. I will treasure your words always. As painful memories of loss invade my mind - I only need to turn to the poem you wrote for me. There, I will find peace and joy.

Aloha my precious friend...

Exquisitely executed. Flowing and textured to perfection. Conducted with spirit and sensitivity!

Surabhi Kaura on June 05, 2016:

Soul stirring poetry! It indeed offers an unspoken sweetness to the Soul - ha ha. Bravo! Carry on...

manatita44 (author) from london on June 05, 2016:

Hi Audrey,

I forgot to add that quintessentially they dance in rhythm and melodic flow, like the exquisite Delight in the eloquence of a poet called Audrey Howitt.

manatita44 (author) from london on June 05, 2016:

Hi there, my Sweet, Audrey. A pacy or elegant tempo, if you like. Watch the cadence of the lark as it moves in full flight.

The mystic sees movement; melodies...inner rhythms in all things ...actually they do not end really. This whole Universe and its inner core is full of cadences, dancing with the Will of Consciousness.

A bit like the inner yearning or longing of the Soul. Birthless, deathless ...always in the flow of Self-transcendence ...even into the end of Time...

Hi Al. That's fine. Thanks.

Al Wordlaw from Chicago on June 04, 2016:

Hey Manatita, I'm waiting for a singer to come over from another country to start recording the songs.

Audrey Howitt from California on June 04, 2016:

You leave me with a question that I am not sure how to answer--cadences are endings, and I know that while I respond to them, I don't think of them that often

manatita44 (author) from london on June 04, 2016:

Al thank you so much!YOU're a good man. How is the recording going?

manatita44 (author) from london on June 04, 2016:

Thanks Ruby. Heading home from Poetry. Love you.

manatita44 (author) from london on June 04, 2016:

Ha ha Bill. Both are good. 67 years? At 64 I have 3 to go. Chuckle. I have surpassed the fountain and become a stream. Now I'm heading for the river. The ocean is still invisible. Lol

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on June 04, 2016:

that would be wordsmith!

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on June 04, 2016:

It only took me 67 years to find my natural flow....not bad, right? LOL

Blessings to you, oh talented wordsmity!

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on June 04, 2016:
