Beauty ...Joy ... Light ...


Lovingly Yours, Mary

Sitting on the sunbeams of twilight beginnings, my hope blooms,

Like the Camellia’s vivid splash of colour in golden spring.

I ride on an indigo-crescent moon of new awakenings;

Heralding the descent, of another fragrant dawn.

As Love blossoms, opening the petals of purple tulips,

2015 becomes a distant memory, like fading youth.

The vision of a radiant sunrise, is beckoning me;

I nurture the burning aspirations of the Spirit.

I peer over a luminous horizon,

To a quintessence of rainbows,

Shaping the fulfilment of my destiny.

The crisp air and sweet serenity,

Proclaims the advent of 2016. A new hope-beacon,

Awakens in my Heart. I prepare myself;

March forward into the fullness of my longings.

I dance to the resonance of virgin symphonies, singing in my Soul.

Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. Copyrighted. 13th January, 2016.

      Gypsy, perhaps you are familiar with Mary's problems. She has kindly included it in her loving contribution here. She needs all our prayers.

      Thank you for these heart-felt words.

      I put both your beautiful sentiments together, not because I have to, but they both express the lofty Spirit of Love and Beauty; of empathy and concern. I thank you both, not for this Hub, funnily enough, but for presenting and remaining shining beacons, in the face of adversity. Glory be!

      p.s. I also appreciate Mary's strength, for coming forward to tell us of her situation.

      "Nurturing the burning aspirations of the Spirit". What more can I add to the beauty of your words and thoughts?

      Each day more people learn of my current health dilemma, lung cancer. What I learn is the loving spirit of everyone here on hubpages. I have received such love and support from my HP friends, friends that have formed a bond like no others.

      Thank you my friend for this dedication of beauty.

      My wish for 2016 is that everyone here on HP appreciates the love and true friendship here.

      The very first line creates an interest to read the poem till the very end. What a sweet dedication to your friend. It flows so majestically… so gracefully.

      Well, my dear, you are right. But… but…. but… your poems are timeless. It revives the lost fragrance and a new sunrise emerges with tranquility. My hat is off to your exquisite poetry! So much inspirational and uplifting! Jai Bhagwan… Jai Manatita. Lots of Love.
