Gone is The Darkness. A Sonnet to PoethePoet

Celestial meadow


Gone is the darkness,

The joy of the Heart ascends and soars,

Like an Eagle,

Liberated in the vastness of infinity.

The bloom and the blossom of daffodils,

Tangos in my Core;

I feel the rhythm of their Surrender,

To the Flame of all Delights.

The song of the hummingbird flows within me,

Like a candela of shimmering rays.

I know neither my name, nor whence I came.

Drunk with the wine of immensity,

In which I now reside,

All is a void from which I seek no Freedom.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier, 24th may, 2015. Copyrighted.

Brother, these are very serene and insightful verses. The more I read them, the much love I gather in my heart. Somewhere I had read about agape love ; your poem reminds me of that. You are touching the wonderful shores. Wish you all happiness and peace.

So happy that you liked it. Tell your friend about hers. Say a little more about yourself if it won't compromise you. Your picture is cool and Profile short which tells me much, but very little. Confused?

Truly appreciated you stopping by and wishing you the Mother's continued blessings. Joy and Love.
