I Enter a Portal of Rainbows, in The Temple of The Soul. A Sonnet to Missy Smith

Gone are the shadows.

No more the arid heat of veiled chasms;

Entangled cobwebs weaving in my mind.

Into the valley of ever-resplendent beauty,

My hope blossoms.

In this fragrant garden of celestial grandeur,

My Beloved beckons to an array of sunbeams,

And I become steeped in reverential awe.

I soar gleefully, into the rhapsody of Seraphim’s,

Singing and dancing in a meadow of Light.

The love-flames of an ever-effulgent Garland,

Wrap my Being with its Delight.

My inner Eagle soars, on a carpet of perennial splendour;

I enter a portal of rainbows, in the Citadel of the Soul.

I've come back to read this lovely sonnet and listen to the peaceful music and the spiritual words of Rumi again. It really made me feel thankful and set my soul at ease today. Thank you again!

Funny, for some reason I had planned to dedicate the poem to you, then I read some of your writings again, and my choice was re-inforced. So happy that you graced this page and with so much love. The feeling is reciprocal.

Yes, this Rumi music and recitation is beyond this world. A friend once told me that he'd never hear Rumi utter a wrong word.

Much Love and Gratitude, Missy Smith, much ... -Manatita

What a bodacious poetry and how aesthetically it is penned down! Truly... gone are the shadows... Anon, light ignited within. Cheers, Missy and Manatita.

A beautiful sonnet of poetry written about a lady that is well deserving of honor and love by a brother who does what our Master desires of him: he exalts God's children by the most amazing words with rhythm and rhyme, beautiful pictures and authentic music in perfect time. Very creative my brother, manitita. You praise God again, also!

I agree with word55. It is such a blessing to know exactly what God has led you to do here on earth, and then be brave enough to do it is so...Inspiring!!! I think all who read this are receiving peace and blessings! :)

Full Definition of BODACIOUS

Southern & Midland : outright, unmistakable

remarkable, noteworthy, a bodacious bargain

sexy, voluptuous, bodacious babes

Not very often that I have to look up words. I'll take the sexy or voluptuous (chuckle) I'm not often like this. Don't panic!

I'm really happy that you've graced my page with your inner and outer beauty, Surabhi. God bless you and those you Love.

You are one of the specials, my brother, Al,

Because you know that I'm praising God. Actually, sometimes I do it in and through human beings. I see the Light; the flame; the longing or aspiration. I strive to kindle a light and to give hope as others do for me. We are all in this together. You seem to know this. God bless your Beauty-Heart.

Yes, Missy. A chosen few and very lovable too. God bless, and so happy that you re-visited. Lots of Love.

Manatita, to me, rainbows are magical. This poem proves it. The colorful hues of light penetrate the soul in a sheet of peace, wonder and joy.

Shauna: "The colorful hues of light penetrate the soul in a sheet of peace, wonder and joy." Gone, I've stolen this! ha ha. Rainbows are indeed magical. They're probably in 20 or 30 of my 200 poems.

Thank you so much. Today I sent out Love to so many of you! It is the 8th Anniversary of Sri Chinmoy's passing and our meditation was exceedingly beautiful at the Centre. Another subject, perhaps. Love always ...

Rasma,

I thank you with much Love in my Heart. Higher blessings.

Ruby,

I love Rumi, and some of my Friends love Rumi too. A most wonderful weekend to you, my Friend.
