Sweet Love, You've Become My Constant Vision and My Song. To Ruby Jean Fuller (Always Exploring)


Removing the dark veil of illusion,

You entered via the Temple of the Sun,

Like a ray of radiant candles,

Beaming the resplendence of millennia.

No more the shadows of the night;

No more the ephemeral nature of pain and gain.

Now enfolded by Your grandeur, my Heart dances

To a new rhythm, re-awakening my Joys; my Delight.

Sweet Love! You’ve become my constant vision; my Song…

A symphony of splendour, endlessly streaming

Through this undeserving life, offering hope,

And countless blossoms for tomorrow.

My Soul looks at Your dazzling lustre;

At how You became a Jewel of Mercy like no other,

Entering my every pore,

My Rose, my Light; my ceaseless Sunbeam.

Beloved, You awakened my inner beauty; set me free;

Now I belong to You; You belong to me,

Even unto the immortal curtains of Eternity.

-Manatita, The Flame-Weaver. Copyrighted, 21st February, 2016.

~ Awakening The Inner Light ~



Come, Sweet Longing!

"Sweet longing, You who played the role of Sleeping Beauty for eons;

Awoke cascading garlands of rosebuds in the Soul ...Come!

The strong winds of Thy aroma drunkens me ...

And I swoon at the portals of perennial Bliss.

Cover my sweet inebriation, with Thy umbrella of protection.

...Come!" -Manatita

Time is in short supply this weekend, but I just had to stop by for this tribute about Ruby, a dear friend who has supported me for years. Beautiful poetry for a beautiful human being...written by a beautiful human being....there is a whole lot of "beautiful" floating around today. :)
