But goodness always does." -Sri Chinmoy.

Crimson Sun


Two Free Verse Sonnets

The crimson sun rinses the sky.

Dark clouds disappear like silhouettes,

Whose images become suddenly transparent.

Dawn heralds an indigo blue moon,

As hope blossoms in the hyacinths and camellias.

Beneath the cool willow, where my Beloved embraces me,

She kisses my breath and my Heart trembles sweetly.

Zephyrs dance within the blossoms,

Cooling the burning flames of our lustre,

In the serene stillness of unmeasured time.

Her supernal radiance lights up my soul!

We hear the magical sutras of cockatiels and canaries,

Singing their harmonious psalms of unspoken Love.

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

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


Bathing The Soul With Its Bewildering Light

He was chided by those in princely robes.

They entreated fasting, doing pilgrimages to holy lands.

He was scolded for his service on the Sabbath,

Begging mercy of the harsh winter;

Putting blankets on the nakedness of the poor.

“Remember to wash before prayer.”Said the Pharisees.

But didn’t the Seeress say, that

There is a thousand ways to pray?

He was so simple, he never understood their sermons,

So he walked on water, for instructions from the priest.

“O Lantern, how did you do this?”said the priest.

He said that Love was burning in his Heart;

Bathing the soul with its bewildering Light.

“Go!” Said the priest sorrowfully. “You do not need my teachings.”

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier.


Wisdom -quotes from the Master

"Live your own life cheerfully.

Go beyond your own life bravely.

But never be tempted to imitate others.

Never!" -Sri Chinmoy

"if you make a mistake in spite of your best intentions,

Remember this mantra:

"The past is dust." -Sri Chinmoy.
