Ode to Deergha


I feel your spirit,

Spreading its vastness in the firmament of the ether;

Singing a freedom song and dancing with the blue-birds.

The muse of welkin’s immeasurable,

Adores your yielding branches like the tree,

And yet, like the mountain, you hold your head high.


You remain awake, to the artistry of beauty,

And the cadences of Mother Earth.

While your enchanting scribblings,

Ever-flowing liberty and inventiveness,

Gladdens the heart and stirs the soul.


O Lakshmi, goddess of wealth and beauty,

Let her light winds or inspirational fragrances;

Grace and charm found in soothing words,

Shine in her depths, ennoble her inner musings,

illuminate her pen, and grant us peace.

- Manatita 5th August, 2013. Copyrighted

"...gladdens the heart and stirs the soul..." Yes, Manatita you and Deergha do exactly that. This tribute is not only lovely and true but a reflection on you for writing it and Deergha for who she is.

Voted up and awesome.

In this game of life: Giving and receiving. Giving is a need and receiving is also a need. I am touched to the core by all of you, Wayne, Tillsontitan, Billy and of course Deergha. My heart is overflowing ... What more can I say. May your abundance continue, and may you be filled with celestial joy.

Good morning friend,

Now again i read this one...I am truly touched and other comments making me humble and really to be honest I am tearful. Its a most extra ordinary gesture of kindness i have came across because you have devoted your precious time for me to express your feelings.....I am truly touched and honored never the less. Take care and many blessings your way:-)
