The Glories Of The Seer-Poet/Poetess. A Dedication to Venkatachari M

Heaven's Glories



tabernacle | Source

To My Friend, Venkatachari M, with Love.

I saw the Seer-poetess envisioning the infinite,

A ray of Light, expressing the grandeur of her realm.

A beacon of eloquence, she entered into my Temple,

Painting its shrine with a calligraphy of flowers, as she called:

“Come! Come!” Let us dance in the forest with my Queen.”

Ever conscious of her innate splendour,

She wove Love’s celestial tabernacles,

Designing a peerless necklace, in the sacred sanctum of the Heart.

Come let us fly! She whispered.

Beyond a glimmering sunlight, glistening on the crest of rainbows,

We flew to the abode of Coleridge, singing:

“Prose: words in their best order;

Poetry: the best words in their best order.”

I heard the howling tornadoes of the night,

Saw the raindrops, tap-dancing on my window.

As the Light of the horizon, rode over the waves of Zion.

Thus Love became a gleaming fountain,

Spouting through the Palace of my Soul.

Calligraphy of Flowers

Beauty and Charisma


Calligraphy of flowers


So here we were, with one hundred roses of Delight.

Through the mist did I seek her,

A fellow Pilgrim of the Sun.

Like lovers, we held hands,

Walked romantically on sapphire dreams.

Exchanged exquisite and eloquent songs of the Spirit;

Touched Hearts with our scribbling fragrances;

Peeped into the promise of tomorrow’s awakening morn.

We touched and kissed in our hearts,

Embraced in the ether, and overflowed in exultation.

Like butterflies, our spirits met in flight,

Soared elegantly,

While singing Psalms to infinitude.

Yet the river of life moves on.

This tide of Consciousness beckons us,

We Sojourners along the Path.

And with all its trials and disenchantments,

It is still a beautiful dream called Love.

Our journey continues to blossom and harvest,

As happiness bubbles forth,

Into the newness and fullness of our lives.

We share equally in our sorrows,

And reap together, the joys of Beauty’s banquet.

Thus will we sing Life’s soothing beatitudes,

Permeating a perennial excellence,

Into the splendour of each Soul.

-Manatita, 13th August, 2016.

I thought just the other day that God needs us, for without us there are no miracles. And each poem from the heart about the spiritual seems a small miracle to me. Heart to heart poetry is truly a blessing from God.

I am hopelessly behind in my reading. Ten days of hospital visits have taken me to a point where I just have to throw up my hands, wipe the slate clean, and begin anew.

So here I am, beginning anew, and this dedication, to a kind and gentle man, is the perfect starting point.

Blessings to you both.

God needs us. I take this up because not many say this. But you have an illumined mind. God is the life-tree and humanity are His branches. Without the branches, who will manifest the flowers and fruits? So we move towards this Higher Beauty and at the same time, consciously or unconsciously, we take humans with us. Such are the mysterious ways of the Lord.

So once more I thank you, Eric. A blessing from God indeed!

Billy, I understand. Do what you can and please continue your good and godly duties to the family.. Higher blessings, my Friend.

This is a truly elegant, beautiful and inspiring tribute to Venkatachari, Manatita. I will read and re-read it, to soak up the entirety of it.

Venkatachari is a lovely spirit among us, as well as a quite aware human being. Nothing but kindness, wisdom, deep spiritual insight and caring for both his fellowman and our earth comes forth from this lovely man. He's a pleasure to know!

Thank you for highlighting him, dear Manatita.

I was trying to add comments on that entry about Eric's lovely comment and Billy's dear beloved's battle for her health, but time had run out and the changes didn't appear. So just let me second your replies to them, Manatita.

What a wonderful tribute to Venkatachari ji! I loved the serenity in the poem. It's quite deep and required a re-reading. This was a masterpiece here. You are doing very well - outsoaring the beauties of nature with your elegance; with your prose and poetries. Btw, Hafiz is a wonderful Poet. Loving the inspirations here. Impeccable!

I am re-visiting. Your poetry is that good. For some reason, this poem reminds of Nat King Cole's song:

"When I fall in love it will be forever

Or I'll never fall in love

In a restless world like this is

Love is ended before it's begun

And too many moonlight kisses

Seem to cool in the warmth of the sun

When I give my heart it will be completely

Or I'll never give my heart

And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too

Is when I fall in love with you."

Oh, so, so, lovely!!

Ruby, I thank you for sending a beautiful hubber my way, and yes, my deepest and heart-felt appreciation as always for your kind and sincere sentiments.

Al, my Brother. Thank you so much on this very pleasant Saturday evening. God bless you, Bro.

Well, well, Surabhi. What an immaculate endorsement. I read this one only this evening at Poetry Cafe. The MC liked it a lot, and the featured artist liked it too. He is a young man moving with the spirit of Love.

Yes, both you and Nellieanna loves Hafiz. He came a little after Rumi, and Meera a little after him. An awesome trio. Guruji has said that among women poets and Seeress, she is totally unparalelled. What a pity I can't find a nice video of her work. I also note your love for my brother Venkatachari M. Totally commendable.

Nat King Cole was a great Vibhuti, someone sent by the divine. This is a wonderful piece. Much Gratitude.

Ah Audrey! O great Poetess. So fitting that both you, Nellieanna and now Surabhi have all graced this page. So fitting for the nature of this piece! Much Love to you...much.

Wow! This is too much for me to appreciate in words. I can only immerse in it and bathe in those celestial delights that you have weaved with your words. I am too much grateful to you for this wonderful dedication to a simple, humble human being as I am.

Sorry for reaching it so late. There has been power disruption today morning. Yesterday night I was there till 11:30 pm but engaged in enjoying some more wonderful dedications from our hubbers to Nellieanna and could not visit mail.

I once again wish to express my gratitude and love to you, my dear brother and friend, Manatita. And thanks to all my friends above and that wonderful, noble lady Nellieanna for their nice comments and thoughts regarding me.

So Brother,

Only today I tried to reach you, but I was not able to, and I could not get some of your profile e-mails to work. As to Facebook and Twitter, I will only go to those places when I have to, which could be as soon as I take up my website duties. Only so as to promote my books.

Yes, Bro, I feel blessed to be in your presence, knowing that so many of my very wonderful friends do care about you. Mind you, you were and are always dear to me. Thank you for coming and adding even more glory and awe to this garden of celestial candles, glimmering with Light. Jai Ram!

Again late, I am! I am having some problem with my computer nowadays. It does not load pages and websites. Each page takes 5 minutes or more time to load. And my sitting hours at the computer are somewhat like 10:30 to 12:30 and again after tea from 4:15 pm to 5:45 pm and thereafter from 9:45 to 10:45 pm or 11 pm. All in IST time. You can subtract 5 hours or so from it to get your timings of it.

Regarding my mail id, it is for your reaching me. Thank you for all the affection you show towards me. My blessings. (I am 65 now).

I lost the original, Shauna. It says the Seer-poet is this and the Seer-poet is that ... no music in it, so I was happy to re-write it. I like my poems to sing to my Heart, and this style does. Tell me what you think about the one on 'parting'.
