I see Your radiant face, as bright as the moonlit sky.

I caress the beauty of rainbows,

My gaze fixed on the luminosity of the crescent moon.

A golden drop, of Your much treasured nectar,

Has touched a longing, now vibrant with expectations.

A river of Love flows in and through me, and

I feel the power and majesty, of this sweet emotion.

Cute Lover, what have you done to me?

I feel like one bewildered, immersed in Bliss,


My joy the sunshine of Your today’s smile,

My happiness the promise, of Your tomorrow’s sunrise.

Come! Let us walk together.

Let me dye my mind in the colours of Your splendour,

And flood my breath, with Your Delight.

Well my friend, I'm not a poet, so your poll was a tough one for me...but you are a poet, a very good one, and reading your work is not difficult at all. :) Blessings always, Manatita!

You do a great job of creating desire and then satisfying it. Perhaps, exposing more than creating. You do whatever you do so well.

You make use of excellent choice of words to enable your poems to become alive and filled with passion and desire. I like to paint pictures in my writing, and you achieve this skill in your poems. The photos add colorful feeling to the words. Thanks for sharing. Also sharing. Blessings. Audrey

Thank you so much, Billy. This poll is for poets, yes, I agree. You are a poet, but water and Consciousness are generally used by the ethereal and esoteric poets. So sorry, this is a hard one, an oversight, perhaps. My deep gratitude for your continued support.

BlossomSB, thank you so much! You seem to be back. Exciting! Much Love.

Dee, you're a true fan. God bless you and increase your fortitude to cope with all your endeavours. Om Shanti (God's Peace be with You)

Sweet Patricia,

Great and loving sentiments. It struck me that perhaps you may like those on Fortitude, Faith, etc. So sorry that they are scattered all over among my 217 Hubs. My love and prayers to you and family, always ...

Hi Audrey,

Welcome. I seemed to have missed you and will look you up, God's willing, tomorrow p.m. Your sentiment is loving and heartfelt and I truly appreciate this. Higher blessings.

Yes, Brother, my fault. Very vague indeed! I write with the title of The Lantern Carrier, and before that The Bard of Solace. I am looking for a name to suit my poetry. Can you think of any? Let me help you:

I am a servant of a Higher Light. I try to serve, to elevate, to inspire and awaken; I write quintessentially to reach the Heart; to touch the Soul. So Bro, if you can think of a title for a poet like me, then let me know. Meanwhile, you do not appear to have seen this poem: http://hubpages.com/literature/My-Quest-is-But-You...

Thanks Nadine. Yes, Love and positive vibes. I try, my Friend, I try. Much Love.

Ok manatita my friend, I am off to check out that poem. Pas for a new title, how about simply "Servant of a Higher Light"?


manatita44 profile image

manatita44 15 months ago from london Author

I like it. Still, I try not to be too pretentious. I'm worried about 'higher' even though that's what it is. Maybe'servant of the inner Light?' I'll work with this. Thanks.

Beauty surrounds us in so many ways. To see it all and take it in, it is sometimes overwhelming...

Yes, so much beauty! Lots! Once again, Deb, appreciating your loving contributions to my Hubs. Much Peace.

Manatita....I'm so sorry I missed this, I took a break from Hubpages so I didn't realise you had written it. Thank you so much, this is a really beautiful poem, and I really appreciate it:-)
