We Both Float in an Expanse of Matchless Love. A Dedication to Marlene B
Charm and serenity
Dedicated to Your Recovery, Marlene. Get well.
You are nothing but beauty, effulgent beauty,
Wherever I look Your aura mesmerises;
Cascading snowflakes to the magna of my Soul.
The wave rises and the sun sets;
The morning dawns and the skies turn blue.
But a heart in fullness weeps delight,
From emotions burning with the breath of joy.
As a boy I loved the country:
I bathed with the larks;
Whistled merrily with the zephyrs;
Danced with the vibrant petunias.
At nights, I would bring the moon down,
Embrace – from my window – a galaxy of shooting stars.
I was a child then!
I flew to the radiant sun,
Mimed the melody of many roosters;
Spun tops and played marbles in grandpa's yard.
But now, Your wondrous love overpowers my spirit;
Your resplendence knows no parallel.
Peerless among the chosen,
You send sweet thrills to a heart pulsating rhythms;
A Soul on fire and glimmering in Your lustre.
My tongue is trembling, and I do not speak.
Instead, I melt, like butter, saturated
By the warmth of the cookware in which it sits.
Only it is the Light of myriad firmaments,
And we both float in an expanse of matchless Love.
Sweet Sunbeam, charmed Ray of hallowed Light,
Flood my Heart with Your effulgence,
Transport me through the portals of Bliss Supreme,
And take me HOME to Thee.- Manatita 3rd March, 2015. The Lantern Carrier. Copyrighted.
