With Love, Anything at all Can Happen. Friday's Inspiration 11


Manatita is an esteemed author living in London, UK. He writes spiritual books, flash fiction and esoteric poetry, his favourite genre.


With Love, Anything at All Can Happen, 1

My song-bird soars gracefully, laughing with the sun,

Its tale, a pair of rusted sonnets, told near firesides

On autumnal evenings, of the glories of creation.

She speaks of Silence, that elusive rascal, I’ve

Tried a million times to grasp. Alas! ‘Twas all in vain.

Stars kisses her cheeks; the candescent moon waltz on

Their radiant faces, twinkling and dancing in supernal

Beauty; singing lullabies to the heavenly minstrels.

Within the firmament, camellias blush; blue-crested robins

Adorn their sweet chords of eloquence, as my soul sings,

Steeped in flames of grandeur; the candescence of Paradise.

Sparrows embrace; rejoice in the freedom of boundless emptiness;

My Heart weeps rain, its drops so pure, as to dowse even the very

Fire of Hades. With Love, anything at all can happen. Didn’t I tell You?

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 8th February, 2020.


A Golden Flute, longing for the Joy of Lovers

I am a golden flute, isolated from its

True Source. My soul weeps with the agony

Of longing, yet I feel helpless, pulled by the

Shadows of worldly storms and boisterous minds.

Lost, forlorn and helpless is my state, not

Even dear ones will hear my ceaseless cries.

My Heart spills red on the abyss of insecurity;

The tears of the eyes run dry from crying.

Come! Sweet Shyama, listen to this tiny flame

Within. I yearn for the Joy of Lovers, steeped in

The sweet ecstasy of Thy name. Yet I feel like the

Dark night, longing endlessly for the dawn of awakening.

“Come! My crush angel. The cocoon hangs from

The foliage, seemingly enclosed, until the miracle

Of the butterfly emerges, in all its pristine glory.”

_ Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 30th June, 2020

Umesh Chandra Bhatt from Kharghar, Navi Mumbai, India on August 24, 2020:

Very soothing and full of need for understanding our lives. Splendid poetry.

manatita44 (author) from london on July 09, 2020:

My Cute Didi Ji,

What a beautiful appreciation of my poetry! Yes, the Heart's purity is essential! May Sri Krishna Prabhu, quench your aching thirst. Om Shanti!

sowspeaks from Bengaluru on July 09, 2020:

Hi my dear soul friend Manatita44, you take me to so many places inside of me with your poetry defying descriptions..‘My heart weeps rain ... it’s drops so pure ‘ I find myself repeating this phrase .

your poem on Shyama reminds me of something I had written as well on the subject ..I feel so thirsty for his flute sound ..the things your poetry does... spellbound...take care dear friend .

manatita44 (author) from london on July 08, 2020:

Indeed, m Friend. One of the reasons I respect you so much. You understand. There's a poem dedicated to you here. Done not so long ago. Om Shanti!

Rajan Singh Jolly from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on July 08, 2020:

Reading these poems is sheer joy. Love is all about joy and when it is about Divine love there is no parallel.

Who says that you are not an authority on my work, Dee? Excellent! Much Love.

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on July 07, 2020:

Such beautiful vignettes of love in a nature background; and then the yearning and fulfillment of love which you plot so well. Excellent!

manatita44 (author) from london on July 07, 2020:

Thanks Rochelle.

I have seen your work. I'm in a poetry function on Zoom and will return to you in about 30 mins.

Rochelle Ann De Zoysa from Moratuwa, Sri Lanka on July 07, 2020:

Beautifully written :)

manatita44 (author) from london on July 06, 2020:

We all do. I am so happy that you are re-discovery your beauty! Do you see that if you were in a different situation, this new growth may not have arisen? Food for thought.

Mary Norton from Ontario, Canada on July 06, 2020:

Manatita, another poem full of depth. You write from your heart. I am now listening to HeartMath to regenerate my heart. I have overlooked it for years.

manatita44 (author) from london on July 06, 2020:

Divine Love is oneness, there's no risk. Even in human love, the ancient Indian ideal of womanhood was so beautiful, so pure! Women lived only for their husbands and vice versa. This is not the ultimate, but a very advanced form of human love built on fidelity and sacrifice.

Thank you so much, Devika.

Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on July 06, 2020:

To love someone is to be at a risk and loving someone makes you feel secure and free. I love that you write so many interesting hubs.

manatita44 (author) from london on July 05, 2020:

Morning Emge,

Your sentiment is appreciated, thanks.


Wishing you Joy also.

Thank you so much!

Yes, Linda C,

Just another way of looking at that which is blissful, rapturous and Silent. Gratitude.

MG Singh emge from Singapore on July 05, 2020:

Lovely poem and sentiments expressed. Thank you.

Audrey Hunt from Idyllwild Ca. on July 04, 2020:

Thank you for this beautiful message of love. To love is the answer to world peace. You define love brilliantly in Fridays Inspiration. Stay well and live with joy!

Linda Crampton from British Columbia, Canada on July 04, 2020:

I love the mention of birds in your first poem. The poem and its imagery are lovely. The freedom of boundless emptiness is an interesting idea.

Shauna L Bowling from Central Florida on July 04, 2020:

I will, manatita. It's storming here now so I'm shutting my computer down. I don't read my mail on my phone. Still old school in many ways....

manatita44 (author) from london on July 04, 2020:

Yes, probably my aura. Each soul has an aura, but some are brighter than others. Sri Chinmoy teaches like the Christ, in the sense that the focus is not occultic, not miracles or siddhis, but oneness with God. In other words, I tend to be one-pointed, focused on the Love of God in man.

But yes, spiritual life does have a lot of rewards, and some are inward experiences. Some humans have greater auras. In my case, I have sat in meditation day after day for up to six hours sometimes for 38 years. So naturally, my auru is very high. Thank you for noticing. I see it too, yes. Read the American Hub. it's my latest. God bless.

Shauna L Bowling from Central Florida on July 04, 2020:

Manatita, your words are so soothing. I love your recitations. I'm so glad you've added them to your posts.

Once again, the light bulb behind you was affected by your words, the spirit of your light. When you said the word "shadows" the light undulated. Watch the video and see if it does the same for you.

manatita44 (author) from london on July 03, 2020:

Gratitude to you Rosina. Much appreciated

Rosina S Khan on July 03, 2020:

Wonderful poetry as always, Manatita. Your poems instill divine love perfectly. Thank you for a great contribution.

manatita44 (author) from london on July 03, 2020:

Yes, Bronwen,

It is a very beautiful sound. A very happy 4th of July to you. God bless your Spirit. Gratitude.

Bronwen Scott-Branagan from Victoria, Australia on July 03, 2020:

As usual - a beautiful, evocative poem - or two, actually. My Dad played the flute and later I took it up as well, so I can truly enjoy hearing the gentle sounds when others play.

manatita44 (author) from london on July 03, 2020:


'a juicy worm?' Well, I suppose so for the robin. Lol. Thank you so much!!

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on July 03, 2020:

This is extra beautiful. I love Robins, they follow the other birds who come to my feeder, but they do not eat the bird feed. I see them with a juicy worm instead. Have a great day.

manatita44 (author) from london on July 03, 2020:


Well, Bill talks about Love, like the poem does. Good to see you, my dear. Thank you.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on July 03, 2020:

My first thought when reading this title is that Bill Holland should love this. I was correct. He even made the first comment. Your words are inspirational, as always.

manatita44 (author) from london on July 03, 2020:

Thank you, Lorna. Thank you so much! Have a great evening!

Lorna Lamon on July 03, 2020:

The harmony of Divine Love perfectly expressed in these beautiful poems Manatita. As always your words inspire.

manatita44 (author) from london on July 03, 2020:

Chuckle, Bro. Christ said: Let the dead bury the dead." That explains it all.

Thanks bro.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on July 03, 2020:

Thank you for such fine writing this morning. Good to start my day. I wonder what it would be like without purpose.

manatita44 (author) from london on July 03, 2020:

Ah Bill, always here or nearly always first. Thank you so much!

Chatra Ji,

Shukriya, my Bhaia Ji. Om Shanti!

CHATRA RAM from BARMER INDIA on July 03, 2020:


there is magic in your written poetry and songs. Thanks for sharing the great poem!

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on July 03, 2020:

It's all about love for me, my friend. Anything more complicated than that turns me into a confused old bear. :) Blessings always...beautiful work, as always!
