They Came ... Only To Go. A Sonnet

They came … only to go.

Emerging from a cloud of uncertainty,

They brought their minds Caravan of Shadows,

To comprehend the calligraphy, painted from his Soul.

Yet their fog was too dense.

The ‘misted’ sparkle in their auburn-tinted wine,

Was undesirable, and he was reluctant to indulge.

At first, they felt something in him,

And their Hearts absorbed this longing.

But a ‘spool of web’ entangled their suspicions;

Tearing painfully at their sceptical minds.

Faced by so immense a struggle, they turned away.

A CHILD CRIED IN THE DEPTHS OF EACH, THEIR ESSENCE,

AWARE OF THE LOSS OF AN ASPIRING FLICKER, IN THEIR SOUL'S.

You always weave such a beautiful and delicate tapestry of word and meaning my friend. This piece is so poignant and forces the reader to comfortably search their own soul for that moment, perhaps in hopes of a reparation. Epic

Deep! Very well written as always with beautiful pictures. This is the most adorable pic of Kali I have ever seen. For the first time, she is looking cute instead of ferocious.

Awesome! Today I'm reading a lot of Manatita. On this sunny day in Punjab, your poems are like a fresh mango lassi.

A wonderful poem on misunderstandings. We all become victims of it at some point in our lives. I ask myself: are misunderstandings necessary? Well, necessary or not, they happen anyway. The secret of life, though, is to always remember that God is the ultimate arbiter and He has plans for us. So all happens for the good. Some roads are meant to be taken and vice-versa. Beatiful pictures. Well done, buddy!

"Do not go away. Forgive, even if just once. This fragile inner child will open, blossoming and spreading its vastness like an eagle, flying on the Wings of Infinity." -Manatita

Wow! Beautiful. A very thought-provoking.

Here's my take on this -

"Travelers are meant to leave. They wander without address They are meant to go away. The one who truly loves and cares are rare of the rarest. They become a permanent resident in our Hearts. The mutual faith that they share blossoms like an eternal flower, and despite the odds, it never withers away. Trust is the foundation as well as the seeds of such a radiant flower." - Surabhi

The meaning is deep. Hari Om.

Well Frank, you have class. I truly appreciate you. Gratitude.

Ralph, what a sweet sentiment. Right from your Soul, I'd say. Thank you so much!

Yes, Shaloo.

I wanted her to cry. She looks so sweet! Shivaya Om!

Thanks Surabhi. A bit of Ramana here:

"The secret of life, though, is to always remember that God is the ultimate arbiter and He has plans for us. So all happens for the good."-Surabhi.

I know ...I know ... we are all wayfarers or sojourners in this Field of Dharma. Love you!

There is too much here to swallow in one sitting, and I suspect, like a fine wine, it will only improve with time. You, sir, are a word craftsman.

They come only to go away. happens when the inner being knows all is not right. This is especially meaningful to me today. God knows best when we call upon him and ask for guidance. Beautiful manatita...

Well crafted lines on misunderstandings and suspicions. Too much depth in each line. It portrays the way of life.

And Alicia, thank you for being a fan. I don't recall seeing anything from you lately. Still writing?

Venkatachari M, yes, yes, Bro. But the Christ was crucified, and Bullah Shah had it very tough. What's to do? Both good men. Thank you for your continued support.

There must always be a flicker in the soul and heart, for it will soon beget both experience and wisdom to do what is right.

Yes Deb. Ultimately so. You are quite right. Happy Easter!

We all are meant for experiencing the bliss all perfect. Nonetheless, we go through hopelessness, ignorance, darkness, deceit, failure, sadness, pride, success, happiness... and what not. Perhaps the Absolute one wants it this way only. This is such a profound poem that the more I read it, the much peace my mind receives. Brother, you make diamonds out of words ! Keep guiding us to the shining path !

It's devastating when a misunderstanding causes a permanent kink. Why is it some misunderstandings can be worked out through clarification and communication, while others aren't given the chance? It can only lead to regret in the long run and hurt in the short term.

What can I say? There are people here whom we really like

and who have disappeared. There are others who accuses us wrongly and are supported by those we consider friends.

In the end we act in a way we feel is best for us, but not necessarily towards the Light. Insecurity is a big one. Thank you for coming, my Friend.

I imagine a painful loss or two must have inspired this one. This kind of depth can only come from experience.
