When Love Knocks at Your Door


When Love knocks at your door, welcome Her.

She may come like a chalice of despair,

Lovingly burning the dross within, to gift

The boon of sweet serenity.

Or appear as the timbre of an enchanting flute,

Resonating within the inner sanctum of the Soul.

Ultimately, She sings melodies in the heavens, and,

While spreading Her tears upon the naked Earth,

This sweet Lover dances with a deep and shimmering glow,

In the sacred Temple of the Heart.


When Love knocks at your door, welcome Him.

He is an uncaged bird which must be free,

For only by soaring to the firmament,

Can He play the chords of your inner music,

Awaken you to the dawn of Paradise,

And whistle the sweet sounds of the humming bird,

Within thy Soul…


Sweet Love

When the Mother cries within, welcome Her.

She joyfully bleeds with out-stretched hands,

As she enfolds us in our darkest chasm.

While on Her shoulder purposefully carries,

The dead elephants of our darkness-mind.

Sweet Melody of the Cosmos, enfolding

Myriads of soothing gifts, wrapped in

A million sunset-rainbows of delight,

Come into our hearts and grant us peace.

mantitta, when we are love, we are not body, caste, creed, color, community, being or thing , in fact we are nothing. We are only love and pure love only. To welcome that kind of love and absorb it whole and to become one with that so that nothing but love remains needs a pure heart. My friend, how to welcome this very distinguished guest in my home ( heart ) that remains to be cleaned off so much dirt ! However Mother is very kind and compassionate and She will impel me to come clean. A soul-stirring and thought provoking poem ! Voted up.

Beautiful poem. I like the way you started it with "him" and "her".

May true love find us all and for those who have found it, hope it stays.
