Quote from Sri Chinmoy

"You must never forget

That greatness does not guarantee happiness,

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.

    I love the thought of the crimson sun rinsing the sky. The imagery in the first poem is lovely and the message in the second one is important.

    Me again, Eric. 2nd time.

    Actually, outer opulence is full of pomp and ceremony ... a lavish lifestyle ... to dine with caviar plus... Lol. Interestingly, one can marry the inner and outer, but it requires spiritual wisdom,..discernment. Rajarsi Janakananda was an American businessman who did both.

    Interestingly, he got his name from the King Janaka, who was also a wise sage. Of course we know that Buddha was a Prince. His father was the King. 'Nuff. Let me just say that money has never been a problem for the God-lover. In fact I need more. Lol. It is the slavery or attachment that is the problem. Finally, outer opulence was just chucked in there like a little test. Ha ha.

    Bill, you some times make me laugh.

    Actually, I believe I told you that I started writing the Monday Inspirations for you, because of what you said about reading my poems first thing in the morning and how they helped. Without looking, I think I even dedicated the first two for you. Thank you for your constant support.

    Good morning, Dee.

    Peace and blessings. I will visit you later. Thanks for your support over the years.

    About the second, yes it's deliberate, as deliberate as my 'Fear' Cantata 1 and 2 or my 'Noises' and 'Work.' As Ioannis pointed out, they seem to deviate, but they carry the same message. Glad you noticed. Ask me anything that puzzles you. I will give a gentle answer.

    Your first sonnet is filled with sounds and flowers. Re-read and enjoyed it. The second shows a big difference between those who parade their outer "princely robes" and the one who is committed to his inner light. Both powerful! Thanks.

    You describe Nature in your first poem so beautifully!

    And ‘bathing the soul’ has such deep meanings. Excellent!

    Nature provides inspiration and nothing can be as beautiful, and relaxing than this. I like Nature walks, beaches, the Sunrise, the blue sky and everything about Nature. Spending time with family, amidst Nature is my favourite way.

    Your poem, the pictures, and the quotes, everything is wonderful!

    Thanks for sharing!

    I voted all except opulence. Perhaps there is a meaning there I do not know.

    Hug and love. Embrace and sweetness. Goodness rather than greatness. Wonderful thoughts put forth lovingly here, thanks.
