Ode to Peace. A Sonnet-Ode, to Ruby Jean Fuller a.k.a Always Exploring.

Come! Great Stillness … sweet serenity unspoken,

The flame of desire tortures me no more.

All around me, I hear Your clarion-call -

The victory-bells, that serenade my Soul.

The pain of darkness has enlightened me;

I rejoice in my awakening, with calm repose.

I, who was scorched and slept with fire,

Now remain fully awake, on a Throne of Light.

Gazing deep, upon a majestic paragon of rainbows,

The voice of the Ocean, resonates with beauty.

Sitting on the lap of the horizon, I gaze inwards,

As a fiery flame commands my Spirit.

O vast Peace, You who dance within and adorn my Heart-Petals,

Do burn my Core, with Your rhapsody of Silence.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. ©Copyrighted, 11th September, 2015.

~ Awakening The Inner Light ~

Peace is All in All. Peace is synonymous with Light and Light is Love. Love is the revelation of Life and Life is a manifestation of that boundless and endless Beauty Supreme.

"O Beloved, Thou Great-Celestial-Peerless-Bliss,

Pour into my Life Your Garb of Peace." -Manatita.

Dear Ruby,

I feel honoured by your sweet words. You and I, we are both servants, so God has begun to bless us both. This poem is so filled with beauty! I read it again and again and it amazes me. It is all the Master's blessings, and He awakens in me the need to serve.

You are, to me, a most worthy recipient. Loving thoughts, as well as my pranams to you for visiting my Hubs and giving me your friendship.-Manatita

What struck me is that although you call for stillness, there are sounds; stillness is not a synonym for silence as I was tempted to think. Another beautiful dedication.

What a wise observation, my Sweet friend. I like this.

"In the beginning was the word, and the word was God, the same was in the beginning with God." A paraphrase of Scripture.

Thank you for such a sublime sentiment. God bless.
