I Pay Homage to The Emissary of Love by Manatita


On the Elysian lap of sleep, I sojourn,

Submerged in the profundity of a restful state.

Deep replenishing auras, so vital to my Soul,

Now caress my burdens;

I feel as one lifted on Wings of Light,

To an abode of supernal height.

Lost in trance, I touch infinity;

Pay homage to the Emissary of Love.

Sweet thrills of Delight, now pass through my burning frame,

And I sense that such serenity is timeless and immortal.

How I wish to live forever in this moment,

A restorative bliss from my more mundane ails.

The radiant touch of a distant Seer awakens my Consciousness;

My Heart opens and emanates

The allure of butterflies and twinkling stars.

The virgin dawn arises, I am awake, invigorated,

And my Soul weeps ... with gratitude.

Hey Ruby,

I wanted you to come back to one of my recent poems. Left a 'tease' for you. Much gratitude this Sunday evening. God's blessings to you, Siempre ...


I thought of you at our Public Concert. It was infinitely beautiful also. Much love to you, husband and family this Sunday evening. In Love and Light.


And once more I offer you a radiant heart and a Soul of deep gratitude. Glory be!

Yes, my Sweet.

I actually grew up with and know forms, but you've got it right. I create and imagine, as well as pull from the ether. The ability as an esoteric poet is not mine. I steal from Him. He he:)Read the next to Lady_E.

My gratitude to you for visiting, my Dear Friend.

Thank you my sweet Friend. Almost everyone finds it peaceful. I am describing an esoteric experience. Interesting. Seems like I've succeeded in what I did not set out to do but makes sense: Create calm.

As always, Chitrangada, my sincere gratitude for your presence here. Om Shanti!

Deep appreciations, Patricia. I am about to leave for Poetry Café and will probably read this one tonight, God's willing. I read in Manhattan last week.

Your much valued contribution is loving and thoughtful and I appreciate this immensely. I wish you and family, God's continued Peace.

Dear brother, you take us to your sweet dreams and it looks as if we are witnessing the heavenly world. In deep sleep, we are left with only our own self. No possessions, no relations, nothing to be proud of, nothing to hate...... Yet, how blissful and contented we are in that " worldless" realm ! I think key of happiness lies in our dreams but we forget to pick it up to open the doors of heaven in our awakening state.

Brother, pardon me if I am being eloquent. This beautiful poem has such a powerful force and magic that I couldn't resist to express my thoughts. Thank you very much for this wonderful poem.

Highly appreciated, brother Harish.

Frankly, I write like a Blake, Gibran or not unlike Rumi, and I write, that by His Grace, my poetry would be read in 50 years and more. I aim for the sublime, lofty ... to serve, awaken, reach the Heart, enlighten, inspire and elevate. I hope to see them being sung, recited and with much artistry.

Write as much as you like. Who am I to stop your Heart's flow? Gratitude ...plus.

That is remarkably wonderful and OI can see why "your soul weeps with gratitude." An excellent take on one of the prime necessities of life.
