Into a Soul Washed Clean by Love. To rdsparrowwriter with Love

Aspects of beauty and love


I’m only a Sojourner here;

A Seafarer, surfing the golden crests of Your vicissitudes.

All is Your doing, and ALL dwells in You.

In the four gateways of

Forwards, backwards, below; above,

It is You alone, I see.

I’m only a passing shadow, and again,

It is You who has given me this boon,

To revel in Your mysteries.

Day and night,

The pillars of North, South, East and West

Resonate Your supreme Victory.


I am nothing but a child here,

So happy and joyful, to dance in Your Lila.

Stay! Tarry a wee while.

The Earth is drenched with my longing;

My lips parched, ablaze

From the scorching pangs of Love within.

These eyes burn from the emptiness of tears;

Ears crave to hear Your celestial drums,

Pulsating in my Heart.

O Lover of Infinitude, Come!

Embrace and caress me, like the waves,

Lashing against the contoured shoreline.

Emptying Your Ocean of perennial Bliss,

Into a Soul washed clean by Love.

I have been and am in love with the beauty of another one's pure heart and His lovely creation and the beauty of His unending love, true divine love, agape love ... truly beauty personified.

I especially love your line here, " ...a Soul washed clean by Love". Such a memorable line here to share in this new year.

Love does wash one's soul clean.

Up ++++ tweeting, pinning, G+ sharing.

Blessings and peace always

A fitting tribute for a beautiful young woman. She was gracious enough to send me a book of her poetry, and it is treasured by me.

Blessings to you both

As John Keats wrote: 'A thing of beauty is a joy forever.' Even when it has passed away it remains in our minds, whether it is a beautiful sunset or another of God's creation. Bless you.

Yes, Stephen,

So kind of you to notice. I am a mere instrument of His. Much gratitude.

Sweet Blossom,

You speak like Webwriter777, but in a different way. I echo your loving sentiments. I wish you a very pleasant evening.

So many good phrases, as usual. "The four gateways", "caress the waves" and more. Great poet you are!

manatita44 2 years ago

Yes, Dee,

I liked that one two. I wanted to call them portals, but I will save this for another time. Much Love.

"Into a Soul washed clean by love." Brilliant. I found myself lost in your words and filled with calm. Which is much needed things are crazy over here. I hope you well. Your friend, Jamie.

Yes, Bro.

I tend to think of you as busy, always having to juggle, and yet you enjoy outings with the family too, while holding down a great but tough job. So I'm really happy that you make the time to read my Hubs. Much Gratitude.

Again Bro. Infinite gratitude. A Friend indeed!

Some of my videos are very short but like meditations. The one on Celestial love, I believe it was to PStraubie, is extremely beautiful and great for meditation. I use it myself in the mornings. You may like same. Much peace.

A wondrous use of words, Manatita. Your poems remain the best I have read in my life.

Then you are competing with Jamie, Bro, Hehe.

This is probably the most touching and visionary sentence that I've read. You could not have written this without a heart of beauty, and so I'm all the more honoured by your presence here.

Someone here said that my poems are up there with the greats of the past that we quote so often today; another has said that he/she comes to my poems first and finally, a girl in Poetry Cafe told me once that when she heard my poems, she felt that she could not read hers, because mines was so superior.

So all really lofty stuff. Infinite gratitude Bro.
