Wisdom from Alexandra Vasiliu
"Touch my Heart
With the hands of Love.
This is the only way
I could ever bloom." - Alexandria Vasiliu
"At its quintessence,
Love cannot lose the Light.
Love is the Light." - Manatita
Tulips of the Heart
Whispering Praises to Love. (Written for a Friend)
Soft and gentle, like spring’s evening
Breeze. Bedecked with inner beauty,
Like silvery dew-drops on lotus-flowers.
Accommodating, like sunrise to the
Dawn; like serene Silence, to
The snow-white purity of the Heart.
Your soul’s adorned in marigolds
And pearls, swallowing the night;
Nourishing the moon with its lustre.
Your elegant smile glistens,
Like the crimson sunset. Sweetness!
Sweetness par excellence! A thousand
Times more magical than the grapes of Tuscany.
Duty beyond diligence! A lustrous Light,
Reaching for the sublimity of constellations!
Yet you are as blades of grass, meek, self-giving;
Sharing your shade like a yielding willow.
A kaleidoscope of colours, ascending, charming,
An eloquent affection-flooded tune on life’s
Alchemy of music, whispering praises to Love.

Sweet, Sweeter, Sweetest is This Love. (A Mystical Love-poem)
Sweet, sweeter; sweetest is this Love,
You and I walking a wondrous waltz,
Peach blossoms cascading beneath our feet.
Your scarlet robes glow in the shimmering
Rays, with an elegance and poise unmatched,
Even by the glimmer of the radiant sun.
We kowtow three times; face each other with
Smiles from heaven; bowing once more to the vows
Of matrimony. Our memories engage as past dreams
Unfurl, our souls savouring the sweetness of supernal wine.
To me this quote below, implies Oneness --complete identification with Love alone
My core emits beauty, trembling with the
Magical thrills of happiness, as a symphony
Of melodies enchant me, blending in harmony
With the eloquence of the psalmist David.
The pink peonies glisten, opening the firmament to
Make ready, the glowing sacrifice of roses. Lavenders
Augment their fragrance, even as the jasmines blush and
The bridesmaids pay homage, to this magnificent setting.
Butterflies dance in circling loops, as the grove
Becomes a kaleidoscope of colours, more bewildering
Than sunsets and stars. Clouds create formations, singing
Silent arias to our testimony, while the cheeks of my
Shyama, become adorned with scent and majesty.
Here in this tenderness and fullness, the redbreasts
Give us feathers, so we could fly, rainbows paint colours
On our cheeks as the lips merge, quivering with bashfulness.
Touched by reverence, my Heart sang a thousand ballads,
Even as tears flowed, rallying victory-songs from Paradise. The
Agony of past challenges, became the sweetest possible wine.
Today the starlings sing ‘I love you’s’, to the sparrows, even
As the blue-bells glow and canaries laugh ecstatically. Shafts of
Light descend as our souls merge, whispering praises to Love.

Wisdom from Maya Angelou and Whispering Mists
"Everything in the universe
Has a rhythm.
Everything dances. - Maya Angelou
"Courage is being yourself,
In a world that tells you
To be someone else. - Whispering Mists
"The Heart is the garden
That always has room,
For the flowers of kindness
And friendship to bloom." - (Author unknown)
