Limitations by Manatita
A Free Verse Sonnet
“O Allah! Some say that I should pray five times a day,
But my soul says: ‘There’s a thousand ways to worship.’
Senior Pastor tells me to rest on the Sabbath, but
Should I not seize each moment, of another virgin dawn?
A Seeress left her cat and went on a pilgrimage,
Only to find on her return,
That the cat was worshipped in her absence.
O Allah! Of what use are miracle crusades,
When the Light of the Spirit is still in darkness?
Why so much time on the outer opulence,
When my mind’s jungle, runs wild like monkeys?
Is the Corporate’s tie, more elegant than the beggar’s tears?”
“O Lantern, a Heart consumed by the fire of Love,
Is sweeter than the celestial wine of heaven.”
-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 14th June 2018.

Heart of Love
"I use to write love poems,
Now I collect them,
Like small shells on a beach.
Only the locals knows about it."- Mitch Ditkoff
