All Conquering Love. Dedicated to Genna East by Manatita

Beauty sweet

To:- Genna East, for her graciousness, elegance, inner sweetness and style.



All Conquering Love, burning

Bright, brighter, brightest into this yearning child,

Who can equal Your grandeur and glory?

Out of the fiery chasm of my penury,

You emerge as a resplendent Light.


As the child nibbles delicately on ice-cream treats,

So do Your delights wipe clean, my dark stains of anger,

And, like a zephyr, You blow away

The cobwebs of my restless mind.


Beloved, in the triumph of Your exultation,

Is the mother’s cradling of the new-born.

While in the flutter of a lover’s heart,

Lies Your kernel of joyful tears,

In the presence of her paramour.

Source

All-Conquering Love,

You beat in the heart of the impoverished,

And the Path to the downtrodden,

Is paved with Thy mercy.


So when the virgin dawn appears,

May it diminish the emptiness of our yesterdays,

Whispers with the hope of a radiant sunshine,

And so alleviate our burdens, to grant us Peace.

So glad she helped you, Ruby. True joy is deep within. We love children; the Christ; nature ... purely because they remind us of our own gold nugget within. They act as beacons and benchmarks to point us to our own Source.

We've forgotten how to find it and these externals act as catalyst to remind us of our innate beauty. We are made in the image of Spirit and Self-discovery will give us all, pure and unalloyed joy.

Much peace to you my sweet Sister. I have sent you two links to meditation as requested. Good night.

Hello Manatita, I only know one thing about you. That you are gracious enough to help Ruby carry the baton all the way to Genna East. I guess Ruby pulled a hamstring. Genna is a writer extraordinaire and we all wish to one day reach the level of writing her words have acheived. When you have a moment stop by and read Jo Goldsmiths Light2Love hubs she got the ball rolling and the much loved marcoujor truned it into a friendly challenge.

Nice of you to show such support.

Funny, Brave Warrior. Ha, ha, ha. You are also the second person - my sweet young friend Taiwo told me as well - to try to get to grips with my language. of course it's a useful idea, but an intuitive heart is mostly sufficient.

Thank you so much for your wonderful sentiment.

Thanks Mckbirdbks.

Ruby was offering me her heart. That sweet simplicity; that inner yearning for a sweet and gentle life. I took it in that spirit.

I commend you for you loving sharing on Genna, and I note your discerning additional note. My gratitude to you. Om Shanti!

Your words are as delicate as the emotion on which you concentrate here. It is your diction and your ability to make the images so vivid that create the master writer in you. I love your work.

"So when the virgin dawn appears,

May it diminish the emptiness of our yesterdays,

Whispers with the hope of a radiant sunshine,

And so alleviate our burdens, to grant us Peace."

So optimistic and peaceful - no wonder you also like eastern ideas. Manatita - I enjoyed very much your poem of love and peace.

Thanks Bro.

Vellur, I generally chose the esoteric, the ethereal. That is my main niche. But I sometimes have to descend; to stay between heaven and earth, or I get too high, too sublime. Then my loving friends tell me that they need dictionaries. ha, ha.

Your poetry is awesome and so you will appreciate mines. Try reading Poesia Cantata 2. I wrote this to tell someone what poetry means to me in poetic form.

Hey bro, gratitude in deepest measure. Om Shanti!
