Poem: In Salutation to the Supreme Ecstasy – Dedicated to a versatile poet, Manatita


A poignant melody, my lips quiver,

Midnight blue falls into slumber,

Dew cascades, and night becomes drenched;

Come! Be a haven to my Soul, O Love!

Ah! Conceal me in crimson lips, O Love!

I yearn to kiss thy fragrant grove

Quench my thirst with the wine of roses,

I pine to respire in thy sumptuous alcove

Cover my eyes with starlight, O Love!

I covet thee and the bliss above.

Widen my Heart, O celestial sky!

To the width of a perennial garden,

Where fragrant flowers

Blossom in my heart, and

Where the whole cosmos

Lie in contemplation in my Soul.

Elevate my Soul, O mellow breeze!

And carry it to an ocean of orison,

Where placid waves rise in the nucleus,

And my very core transforms into a sea of Light.


Speak to me from within, O Love!

I appeal to thee with naked gloves;

Life is a prism of thy glorious Light,

I soar to embrace thy effulgent height –

Like the mirth of a butterfly

That’s drunk with sweet nectar,

Like the grace of Jasmine vines

Ornamented with drizzle,

Like the hues of a rainbow

Coruscating the sky,

Like the rays of the Sun

Kissing the gentle eyes,

Similarly, I have fallen in Love

With my Beloved’s majesty,

O Supreme Delight!

O Divine wine of ecstasy!

O intimate quintessence of Eternity!

How I’m smitten with thee!

Well, well, as I said before it's like tit for tat. You two seem to write just where it's at: on a common height. I like it. This is a great honor to Manitita and very deserving. Wonderful poetry, Alright now!

Dear One,

Ab tum hi ho. Meri aashiqui ab tum hi ho.

God has truly blessed you with so many gifts!! You are a paragon of inner beauty and an epitome of all that's meaningful and fulfilling in so many lives! This is a supreme blessing. If I were you, day and night I would remember the One who gave you all this. She does not chose everyone, and so offer your most profound Gratitude at every moment. Hari Om! Jai, Jai, Jai Prabhu! Jai Bhagawan!

I sit and listen to your video singers, initially with a silent smile on my face. Hands on my cheek, I sit back and suddenly I'm taking it all in. So meaningful! I go into a different space and my joy becomes unparalleled. I think of you, of the One manifesting in and through you, the One who gave you all this.

"O Mother, so much beauty in Your Cosmic dance!

Let me reach out to Your radiant pulse,

Dancing with the elegance of Shiva,

To the beloved flute of our Lord Krishna,

And the fire of Love burning in my Soul." -Manatita.

Wow! A poem filled with a zenith-height majesty, and an incomparable Delight. Every single word is like a million sweet-scented candles, lighting the flame of longing and devotion in my Essence. A masterpiece beyond compare! Salutations ...salutations. My Divine pride in you and for you, my Sweet, sweeter, Sweetest Surabhi, is unutterable! Super excellent, sublime and most lofty Hub. Glory be!!!

My Dearest,

Goodness gracious!!! What shall I say now? Your lovely sentiments always leave me answerless. I wonder whether I really deserve such admiration. My! My! I am flattered. I have yet to learn much more… much. I thank you from the core of my Heart, Manatita. I am very thankful to you, very.

Your Love is matchless,

Your Kindness is Supreme,

Your Sincerity is commendable,

The ‘Lantern Carrier’ gleams…

Your Heart is pious,

Your Soul is unique,

You are Manatita – Beyond the Mind,

Ah! The Divine’s majesty has been so kind!

Brahma, Vishnu, and Mahesh

Have graced your essence

With peculiar rays,

And we feel enchanted,


Connected and,

Being receptive.

I feel like flying now. Am I on cloud nine? (he he). My salutations to you first! I am indebted to your unconditional love as a Teacher. No debt can be paid... no debt. And, I touch your feet to show my utmost respect. Remember, God resides in human beings too. How sweet of you! Now let me peruse your poetries that I've missed. Jai Shiva... Jai Bhagwan... Jai Param-Pita-Parmatma... Jai!

Lots and lots of Love to you :)

Wheeewww! This was so erotic in the nicest sweetest way. I loved it!!

Surabhi, you are a very deep poet indeed. I don't know if Manatita is blushing from this one, but it made me blush; so many alluring words of admiration here. This is just my interpretation of this poem. I do not pretend to be as spiritually guided. I do know it is lovely! :)

Thanks, Missy. I appreciate your kind words :)

Yes, it’s an esoteric poem to the God Almighty, and since Manatita is a spiritual person, so I dedicated this to him. I am smiling as I am typing (he he) Take care, my friend. Love to the little ones!
