Everything Eventually recedes; Everything Eventually Blossoms. A Sonnet, By Manatita


The tide rises, and then gradually diminishes in intensity.

Like a river, the sea recedes,

Only to gain momentum for a greater mass.

Leaves drop from their foliage

And return to their natural roots.

Even a heart of greed will one day blossom,

Into a sea of love. Everything eventually subsides;

Everything eventually blossoms.

In quest of its own self-transcendence,

The Cosmic Will commands the night to fade,

And guides the Light through shadows.

Everything eventually subsides; again,

Everything eventually blossoms.

-Manatita 9th February, 2014. Copyrighted.
