Lost in stupor, I see a paragon of flames,

Filled with the Light of Knowledge.

Star lights and fire-flies, are dancing in my Heart.

I am a butterfly,

Basking in a rainbow of unspoken sweetness.

The Beloved undresses me,

And I kneel, naked and open

To Her inner opulence.

The light breeze kisses our breaths,

As a ray of fire directs its path,

To my Soul's longing to belong.

Come! My cute Lover! No more seclusion.

Fill me with the echo of Your inner melody,

To merge our lives in Beams of Love.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. ©Copyrighted. 9th November, 2015.

The Colours of Life

The colours of Life are but a manifestation of the power of Love: Serene, vibrant, silently unspoken, yet pulsing like a Heart woven by Eternity. Each tapestry portrays its magical luminance, like a ray of golden lamps. Amidst all this, we dance our dance falteringly, each step betraying a greater learning of a craft which eventually becomes a masterpiece. Can you feel this Symphony? Waltz with me!

Still I Rise

I rise to the Light of Heaven; I rise to the starlight hue of Autumn. Weighed down by many chasms, still I rise. I rise to the beacons at the portals of Paradise; I rise to the myriad sonatas singing in my Soul.

My Enchantments

Beauty always lends itself to my enchantments. With tearful eyes, some days I'm filled to the brim, and my Heart comforts the universe like raindrops from Heaven. It is then that I evoke memories of a distant past when all was peerless, timeless and immortal. What's happened?

My Beloved is playing His ceaseless, birthless and deathless game, and I sit on His bosum in this Vision. Glory be!

Falling and rising

Ah! – Romance, nay, a rare esoteric modus operandi!

Yeah, vividly depicting the Divine Love of God Almighty. The Supreme… I’d say ‘Supreme’ really undresses us from worries planted in our inner cargo and, thereby soothes us with nakedness; meaning tranquility and freedom.

Struggles and impediments are great teachers. Soon comes the time when those unbridled horses who were once stomping on the tender carpet of our hearts simply cease with just one command of the Supreme…. only SUPREME. Well written! Very well written!

Let the butterflies waltz! Let them… yep!

You are my unlikely Shakti, Surabhi, and I pay homage at thy feet divine. What a beautiful understanding in one so young! Grab hold of your inner Star and follow it; let its twinkles and inner petals, make music and dance in your innocence-heart. Hari Om!

Your poem reflects the colors and the beauty like the picture of the butterfly that is like the beauty of both Audrey as a poet and her wonderful poems.

Manatita, you bring such life to what we can't see or touch, but feel with our souls. You conjure up images in the reader's mind that touch the heart and make it dance.
