Wisdom from the Master

A moment of self-giving life,

can conquer the sorrows

Of many long years." - Sri Chinmoy


What I Would Like. A Free-style Sonnet

I would like to look at You,

The way I look at flowers: pure,

Elegant, more fragrant than a Dior J’adore.

I would like to paint Your smile,

The way Love paints the dawn: lustrous,

Immaculate; blessed with the pinnacle of sweetness.

I would have You light my world,

The way stars glow in darkness,

Beaming with the effulgent kiss of twilight.

I would like to ask the swan,

To salute your charm and gracefulness,

Gliding in tranquility, on a most sacred lake.

I would like to embrace the moon so tenderly,

That we both bask in the Joy of Your candescent lustre.

- Manatita, the Lantern Carrier 27th Jan, 2021


Wisdom on the Self

"Above all, be true to yourself.

And if you cannot put your Heart in it,

Take yourself out of it." - Author unknown
