Daybreak Magnolias


A free verse Sonnet

Touched by an Ascending Love

I arise at daybreak, in a very special place.

Dawn churns its beauty in my Spirit;

I feel touched by an ascending Love.

The smile of an immaculate child enchants me,

My Heart drinks of her sweetness,

Flooding my core with an illumining Light.

As the butterfly emerges from its cocoon,

Hovering above a garden of magnolias,

So too, my soul – like an eagle –

Soars into the lap of infinity’s Peace.

Immersed into the rhapsody of Silence,

I hear the song-birds’ ballad, telling

Of the glories of man, descending into

An arena of struggle, in quest of Love.

Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 5th August, 2018.

Wisdom-quote from the Master

"Inside each one of us is a beautiful flower garden. This is the garden of the soul. With each lesson we learn, the garden grows. As we learn together, our individual gardens form a tranquil paradise." -Sri Chinmoy.


A free verse Sonnet

La Playa Del Alma

She hugs my feet, her imprints as real,

As my habits of millennia.

Her velvety smoothness lays bare my soul;

I reflect in solitude, on this magical moment.

Her Spirit speaks of the beauty of man;

The bewilderment of nature,

Giving solace to this sacred flame.

Her crisp fragrant aroma kisses my cheeks;

The ebb of her tide dances beneath my toes.

Sunset glimmers on her surrounding waters –

A pendulum of waves –

Washing the impediments off her lustre.

Love floods my being, Her breath

Cleansing my shadows, to set me free indeed.

Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 7th August, 2018.


Wisdom-quote from the Master

"True inner joy is self-created. It does not rely on any outer circumstances. A river is flowing in and through you, carrying the message of joy. This divine joy, is the sole purpose of life." -Sri Chinmoy
