Manatita is an esteemed author living in London, UK. He writes spiritual books, flash fiction and esoteric poetry, his favourite genre.
Ann Carr, my favourite English writer and hubber, has said that she was inspired by Patricia Scott’s words, expressing her thoughts on poetry thus:
"a way to see around the corners and over the hills and under the seas and through the wind". – Patricia Scott.
This inspired Ann to come up with some truly exquisite pieces … to find the time to issue a challenge of her own as well. See her Hub link below. Challenge --
Ann Carr: “Choose one (or more) of the four criteria above (See her hub link below) and write about it - poem or prose. You have my permission to use any of the above photos, should you wish, as long as it is for this sole purpose and that you attribute them to me please. Of course, you could use any pertinent inspirational photos of your own choosing.”
Let me know if you do take up the challenge, then I can add your link to this hub.
The Sacred Wind. A free-style Sonnet
Whispering to the willows; drawing her breath
From the Light of ancient gods, she creates
Music, feeding and nourishing my soul.
I drift, like a cordless kite, on the red threads of
my memories, dancing with the melody of her storms.
I hear them sighing -- white daisies and verdant foliage,
Yielding to the wind, yet knowing that this too, will pass.
Light zephyrs are only a hair’s breath away; the vast sky
Will open, the sun will peep through, scattering its rays;
Heralding a cascade of lushness; of sprightly squirrels
To the barn. The malleable branches, recovering their verdure,
Will make merry as the starlings return with vivacity.
We'll all waltz and rejoice, like a ballerina -- ethereal,
Graceful as the swan; chanting praises to the glories of Creation.
-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 1st June, 2020
