Come, sweet one,

Walk with me,

In the freshness of the morning dew.

Gaze at the dazzling splendour of the stars,

Breathe within the stillness of the night,

And absorb the blazing glory of the sun.

Let go of all entanglements;

Be at peace with what the universe offers,

With unspoken gratitude.

Is not our growth woven in our toils?

Our joys hidden in our sorrows?

Does not the light still glimmer in the darkest night?


Come! Dance with me, on yon green meadows.

Smell the fragrance of the blossomed rose.

Swing merrily with the daffodils,

And watch the freedom of the larks in flight.

Can you not hear the soothing voice of the rain?

Nature’s splashing symphony of the waves?

Or the cosmic whistling of the willows;

The meanderings of the waltzing stream?

Come! Marvel with me

At the firmament of the heavens.

Let the melody of the zephyrs,

Be a charming repose for your seeking soul.

And, whoever or whatever you consider Her to be,

Be consoled by LOVE.

For in the face of all delusions and distractions,

She remains, eternally, the life-breath

Of who you truly are: The very pulse of Being.

LAUGH! Strive to be Happy.

-Manatita, 4th February, 2013.

      This is the loveliest gift I have received in a long, long time. The descriptions of the nature settings throughout the piece are simply awesome. (You are such an exceptional word artist!) I hear your invitation to embrace the love, peace and joy of the life that they offer. I recognize the challenges and I continue to strive. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I appreciate you!
