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

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

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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....

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
