A Dedication For Monday’s Inspirations, to Surabhi Kaura.


The morning Light awakens,

And an inner Sweetness

Enfolds my Heart, like a sparkling rose.

Earth, Air, Water and the Fire of the Spirit,

Envelops me;

I hear the melody of myriad Sonatas in my Soul.


Invigorated, an unspoken Gratitude fills my Core,

And an ever-effulgent sunrise,

Unfolds with a majesty of rhythms,

Far, far beyond my humble comprehension.


The firmament dances,

As though the bugle of Seraphims enchant it.

My Breath disappears, into the serenity

Of another Golden dawn.

No comments? What's the matter with the HP writers? Some of the best poetry on HP and no one has commented? Sigh!

Hopefully my comment will start a flood of "beautifuls"....as you should receive.

blessings, my friend

You are not alone, Bro. I sometimes grapple with the same thoughts. Again, the poetry is as I like it to be.

It is really a beautiful thing being able to serve. Sri Chinmoy tells a funny story of a Saint who once turned up to give a talk and no one came. So he gave the lecture anyway, but to the walls. He was fully convinced that his thoughts would spread, like prayer.

Do you know who inspired this poem? I have already won. (smile). Seriously, no winners, Bro, only servants, you and I. Warm Hugs ...

Ruby, Bill feels happy if he can reach only one person, and I know that I have reached you and a few more. Indeed you are my Friends. So the Gratitude poem elsewhere, is for the Light in You also.

How I Love your comment! We are all winners and each Soul came with something special to offer to the world. Never forget this! You are a shining diamond in your own right. Love always, my sweet Friend.

Visual images, mainly of light and also the sense of touch enfolding or enveloping the heart are regular characteristic of your poetry. Always good!

What a wonderful sonnet poem to read after another busy day at work. The words were filled with the Essence of God’s Spirit pouring through His royalty in you. May Surabhi Kaura feel honored! Keep it up and voted up!

Dear Manatita,

Namaste!

I had read your vivacious poetry, but let me take the liberty to confess – I preferred to take some time so I could pay a proper heed and reply with my soul’s voice.

I pay my utmost gratitude to you for penning down such a cordial poetry that its warmth spreads with such tranquility and I fail to extract words to pay my sincerest thanks. I am speechless. I am humbled with your affection.

Here is a snippet to you –

The pen today gently broke,

Before a solemn hymn,

For it rhymes and rings in my ears

With such serenity,

That the tides deliriously

Bow their heads.

Lo! Even this fog feels spring to me

Where birds usher a mellifluous

Divine song and flowers bloom in the garden

Of my heart – such is the noble soul you are!

I am deeply pleased to meet you and I wish you all the best for your future endeavours. Your poetries are as celestial as you. Om Shanti! :)

It slipped from my mind to mention about Rumi. I love Rumi's poetries as well and this one was a masterpiece in the voice of Deepak Chopra.

Your poetries touch the very zenith of soul that it sings sacred songs. It is as if copious harmoniums, tablas, sitars and violins are playing in a tranquil land. Such is the grace it holds and serves with placid waters.

Yes, Dee. Light is synonomous with Love, and while Love is felt in Silence, Light can actually be seen. But you may know this, my Friend. God's Light is ... well. Leave it be. He he.

Yes. I wrote another this morning entitled: My Beloved Beckons to an Array of Sunbeams. Indeed it was called: My Beloved Beckons to an Everglade of Light. Some changes made as usual.

Thank you so much, my Sweet. I use the language of the mystical or esoteric poet. Since I have sat in meditation for 33 years, they now come to me naturally. Hugs.

He he my Dear Al.

How are you? Haven't seen you for a while. You're writing? Your sentiment bears charmed words, and I find them soothing to the Soul. God's blessings continue to shine on you, Bro.

My Sweet, Sweeter, Sweetest Surabhi, Perhaps I have an Indian Soul, as I am at one with all you say.

I too, will return here. I'm hungry and will eat, inshal'lah. Rest assured that I have enfolded you in my Heart.

Thank you so much Gypsy. I truly appreciate this.

DDE, so happy that you tweeted my Hub. Deepest appreciations.

Surabhi,

Me again. I dedicated a poem on Gratitude to my Master. It is what I feel also when I read words such as yours. Some say that words are not necessary. But the Masters say they are. Guru Nanak describes this so beautifully in his writings!

Your poem is lofty and sublime, and so I'll have to try and catch up with you, my Sweet. Thank you ... thank you ...

I am very pleased to meet you, too. the feeling is reciprocal. Canada? Drop me a line. Hari Om!

Dear Manatita,

Welcome again. Please share the poem you have dedicated to your Guru. I would love to read it. If you want, you can drop the link of your poem via HubPages e-mail.

I shall be bugging you soon with plenty of notifications, as I have decided to take a break from writing and study your poems. They are unique. Hopefully, I'll also learn the art of writing a sonnet. Haha!

And - I do believe words are necessary. They unwrap the concealed expressions of our soul which carry deepest emotions enshrined in heart.

Well, I was born in Punjab, India, but I live in Toronto, Canada. I may not live in Punjab, but Punjab lives in me :)

I am actually spell-bounded to know your immense wisdom in spiritual studies. It surprised me that you have read Guru Nanak Dev ji's readings. Whoa! Fortunate to have a friend like you. The more I praise about you, the less it is. Much love. Hats off! Har Har Mahadev! Jai ho!

If it's not to early. Perhaps I can say that Guru has sent you to me. I use to say that I write for forty fifty years down the road, but my Teacher used to say, why not in this life? Now I have three excellent videos like Rumi and others, and some more on the way.

Now you are talking about studying my poems. What an honour! In Spirit, you are the closest that I've seen to my poems. I love Nellianna, and Audrey is awesome! There are a few more. Both you and Sujaya are new to me but really up there.

You ask me many things here. I have sat in meditation from half hour to four hours every day for 33 years. I wrote the Gratitude poem for my 33rd anniversary, October 2nd. I have written a book called My Guru, Sri Chinmoy: Life and Teachings. It is an immortal Treasure. It is on Amazon but something seems to have gone wrong with the price. The book should be $13.99. It is obtainable from ww.vajrapublications.com

I have done much Seva at Sikh Gurdwaras. I have been going there for over 30 years, as a guest, of course. I have friends there. I read the Japji, Sukhman Sahib and others.

My jaw just dropped! Meditation for 4 hours and that too since 33 years?!? You are an extraordinary soul, no doubt.

Yes... yes! I did go on Amazon, but somehow the link to purchase did not work. I shall see the second link.

Now what could be more pleasing to hear about doing Seva! My respect to you ten-folds. I also attend Radhaswami Satsangs with my parents, where we sometimes meditate for 15-25 minutes in a group. I have done Seva too in Temples, Guruduwaras and Radhaswami Satsangs. To me, no religion is supreme than humanity. That's an apex religion - serving the mankind. Heartiest thanks to HubPages for enabling me to see a vivid image of your divine realm.

Thanks for the links.

Manatita, this is such a peaceful gift from your soul. I love that you capitalize key words in your poetry. I find myself doing that when I refer to Life in my poetic creations. I think it's indicative of preciousness and is a sharing of very personal responses.

manatita44 14 months ago from london Author

Hahaha. You noticed! Like all esoteric or mystical poets, we feel better when we can say 'Love' rather than 'love.' Many more words, of course. depending on the sentiments expressed or what we are trying to say. Sri Chinmoy teaches, that even God Itself is not bound by rules. Rules confine us; put is in boxes, like religion. It is not made for the creative poet.

Preciousness indeed! What I feel for you, I feel for Surabhi also. It is the language of the Soul. Much Love.
