Beneath the moon


We Become One

The crimson sun rinses the sky;

Dark clouds disappear like shadows,

Whose rivers suddenly run dry.

Dawn peeps through an indigo blue,

As hope blossoms in the marigolds and sunflowers.

Beneath the moon where we encounter,

I kiss her cheeks, and her breath trembles softly.

We both pull at the fragrance of flowers,

Cooling the burning flames of bodies entwined,

As eternity stands still.

Her smile lights up my soul;

We hear the sweet chants of cockatiels

And canaries, singing their sweet psalms of freedom.

We hug tightly in the silence of the morn and become one.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 15th, October, 2017.

I Fell Into Your Flame And Became Love

Having unlocked my chains of millennia,

We both immersed into an ocean of bliss.

Filled with the madness of a reckless moth,

I fell into Your flame and became Love.

Within the cherry blossoms where we first encountered,

I behaved initially like a timid child.

But spring bloomed like a dauntless hero,

Fanning the fire of my longing.

Now we waltz through willows and snow-clad mountains,

Dance beneath rainbows and gaze at crimson sunsets.

My core is filled with tenderness and sweetness;

This Heart’s enwrapped by the magic of Thy allure.

The immensity of my entanglements has dissipated;

We have merged in fullness and become One.

Quote from Sri Chinmoy

"True, this world of ours is full of hatred and disbelief, but that is no reason why we should not love and why we should not believe. We must love and believe in order to empty the hatred-sea." -Sri Chinmoy

The Flame of Love


Sri Chinmoy's quote

"A moment's truth
Can and shall make the world beautiful.
A moment's peace
Can and shall save the world.
A moment's love
Can and shall make the world perfect." -Sri Chinmoy
