For your wonderful poetry and caring Heart

Heaven's Delight | Source

I see Your radiant face, as bright as the moonlit sky.

I caress the beauty of rainbows,

My gaze fixed on the luminosity of the crescent moon.

A golden drop, of Your much treasured nectar,

Has touched a longing, now vibrant with expectations.

A river of Love flows in and through me, and

I feel the power and majesty, of this sweet emotion.

Cute Lover, what have you done to me?

I feel like one bewildered, immersed in Bliss,

My joy the sunshine of Your today’s smile,

My happiness the promise, of Your tomorrow’s sunrise.

Come! Let us walk together.

Let me dye my mind in the colours of Your splendour,

And flood my breath, with Your Delight.

      You're quick, Bro.

      I did not realise that you're here. I always wish to honour excellent and exquisite poets, and you sure fit the picture. My gratitude to you for coming here. Lots of Love, Bro.

      Manatita....I'm so sorry I missed this, I took a break from Hubpages so I didn't realise you had written it. Thank you so much, this is a really beautiful poem, and I really appreciate it:-)

      Beauty surrounds us in so many ways. To see it all and take it in, it is sometimes overwhelming...

      I like it. Still, I try not to be too pretentious. I'm worried about 'higher' even though that's what it is. Maybe'servant of the inner Light?' I'll work with this. Thanks.

      Ok manatita my friend, I am off to check out that poem. Pas for a new title, how about simply "Servant of a Higher Light"?

      Thanks Nadine. Yes, Love and positive vibes. I try, my Friend, I try. Much Love.

      Yes, Brother, my fault. Very vague indeed! I write with the title of The Lantern Carrier, and before that The Bard of Solace. I am looking for a name to suit my poetry. Can you think of any? Let me help you:

      I am a servant of a Higher Light. I try to serve, to elevate, to inspire and awaken; I write quintessentially to reach the Heart; to touch the Soul. So Bro, if you can think of a title for a poet like me, then let me know. Meanwhile, you do not appear to have seen this poem:

      Dee, you're a true fan. God bless you and increase your fortitude to cope with all your endeavours. Om Shanti (God's Peace be with You)

      Sweet Patricia,

      Great and loving sentiments. It struck me that perhaps you may like those on Fortitude, Faith, etc. So sorry that they are scattered all over among my 217 Hubs. My love and prayers to you and family, always ...

      Hi Audrey,

      Welcome. I seemed to have missed you and will look you up, God's willing, tomorrow p.m. Your sentiment is loving and heartfelt and I truly appreciate this. Higher blessings.

      Thank you so much, Billy. This poll is for poets, yes, I agree. You are a poet, but water and Consciousness are generally used by the ethereal and esoteric poets. So sorry, this is a hard one, an oversight, perhaps. My deep gratitude for your continued support.

      You do a great job of creating desire and then satisfying it. Perhaps, exposing more than creating. You do whatever you do so well.
