Love, Sweet Love, A Dedication to Taiwokareem, by Manatita
Flowers of the Heart
"Love is the revelation of life.
Life is the manifestation of Love."- Sri Chinmoy.
Last night’s twilight hours,
Saw wondrous stars singing and dancing in my heart.
A new and silent deliverance had just transformed it,
Into a Temple of beautiful flowers.
Deep within, I was lavishly adorned and decorated
By the crown of His glory.
No scent was spared;
Fragrances permeated from above, below, forward, within …
I was bedecked with oils from an ethereal realm.
Ah! Such translucent Light!
The inner eye fixed with enchantment,
My caged bird of millennia,
Now roamed freely in the firmament,
And I reeled as in a drunken stupor.
What have you done, O seeker?
Why bring intoxicants in the presence of the Beloved?
As the sweet, secret and sacred Word embraced me,
I was overwhelmed, and became mute.
Drifting, .. drifting … all thoughts lost in blissful void,
A deep serenity as of the ocean’s bed takes hold.
I am awake to the inner melodies of myriad Seers.
Sri Chinmoy’s flute is resonating in my Soul.
A supernal realm approaches, my Soul cries.
Joyous and bounteous is this moment!
I sail upon a boat of supernal Delight,
And merge in union with my Lord.
