Not in princely robes or Habits will you find Me!

Not in the ochre-coloured garb of the Sanyasi.

For I am the golden-crested Song-bird, glowing in your heart.

I veil My Power in varying degrees;

As such, even in the robes of the Bishop,

You may sometimes find Me wanting.


My sweet children,

Glory is my name; Love my many colours,

In this enchanting Field of beauty.

Singing Alleluia! Hosanna in the Highest!

I manifest my thrills, into the heart of baby Jesus;

Sanctify His Manger, and smile at the Nativity.


Not in the commercial stress of Christmas will you find Me!

For I will ride upon the wind;

Dance with the men of wisdom,

Bringing heavenly fragrances to Bethlehem of Judea.

O Beloved, How sweet Thy name!

The wondrous melody of Thy voice!


I hear the child of Mary,

Giving fervent praises to Your inner opulence;

Brother Joseph hails the new-born King!

While Mary revels in the joys of her charming Son,

Myrrh and frankincense wafts the atmosphere;

I shed tears in the profundity of my Soul.


Not in the celestial Heavens will you find Me!

For, like my Beloved Christos;

Like boys playing marbles on a moonlit night,

I enjoy the game of Hide and Seek, within a fire in the Heart called Love,

Showering a furnace of Light;

To create magnificence, in the abyss of the forlorn Soul.

Manatita your range is amazing. What beautiful words you have written here in the form of Christianity. The love and light we seek in this world, hiding yet ever present.

This poem is biblical in its scope.

Voted up, awesome, and beautiful.

Mary, my Dear Friend. Loving greetings!!

You're absolutely correct, of course. You know, I'm sure, that I was blessed with a God-like Teacher. The devotee sees no dichotomy, rather he sees all as One; complimenting in different ways, the same one Source. I believe you know this. I also grew up in Christianity, which is my Faith.

Lots of love to you, my Dear. The season is marching on and I bid thee glad tidings of great joy. Going anywhere? Peace.

Thank you, Billy.

I try, Bro, I try. The force of the Spirit is pushing me lovingly, and I mostly heed it's call. Let us pray for one another. Peace.

Theresa, I thank you on Doris's behalf. She is a noble Soul and one who will sincerely appreciate our prayers on behalf of her daughter Monica. You are a noble Soul too, Faith. Let us continue. Higher blessings!

Blossom, know that you are very dear to me.

If I'm correct, I believe that you are one of the earlier persons that I composed a spontaneous poem for, and then did a proper one later.

All I'm trying to say is that you mean a lot to me and that the Christmas feeling is reciprocal. Higher blessings!

What a beautiful tribute and to my daughter, Monica. I know that she will love it. Your ability to touch just the right notes at any given season is amazing, but for this season there is something that is even more special. Thank you for your thoughts, prayers, and tributes to my family. You are, indeed, a very special person who has touched the heart of God.

Thanks Doris.

I really did touch the heart of God at one point, in the sense that this is how disciples relate to their Spiritual Teacher. Alas! I'm getting old and slowing down and making more spiritual mistakes. The momentum is not as it used to be. Sob, sob .. he he.

Glad that you liked this poem and I take no news to mean that things continue to be great for the family. Higher thoughts and blessings. Peace.
