Manatita is an esteemed author living in London, UK. He writes spiritual books, flash fiction and esoteric poetry, his favourite genre.


The trail emanates a glint of hue,

As the Light of Heaven,

Shimmers on the Autumnal leaves.

Arm in arm we walk lingeringly,

As the chilled air sucks into our breath.

Birds chirp merrily, reminding me,

Of the melody of nightingales.

Dusk approaches, and the colours of the sun,

Mesmerises our hearts with their beauty.

Bounding with longing, we pause,

And she gives me a lover’s kiss.

Here in this timeless moment,

I feel her need and reciprocate the emotion.

Enthralled and charmed

By the cosmic colours of the Sun,

The firmament radiates in rapture.

Behind the mystic mist and mountain foliage,

A thin white streak, jets across the silvery clouds.

Way below the peaks of Dilsburg,

The metallic sound of a moving train diminishes.

We stop in motion,

Spellbound and captivated,

Meditating upon a sun now crimson red,

Slowly receding into the skyline.

We stand transfixed, and our Spirits stir,

As we kneel in reverence,

To the glory of this autumnal eve.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. Copyrighted, 1st November, 2015.

      Well, I told you I was there, my Sweet, and I note that I did give the train its correct sound: 'metallic.' It was a real train. The poem is as I saw it. I took the pics from the internet, naturally. Excellent but not sublime. The real deal was sublime! Let me look for the Pujaloy poem for you. Parts of it is as sacred as the place.

      Thank you so much. I have time now as I did not go to poetry. So I will look at the music I saved which you loved so much. Much Gratitude, Nellieanna. Much ...

      A lovely poem and presentation. As you always do, you've brought together gorgeous illustrations and music to highlight your poetry. I love this Rumi quote: "As you start to walk out on the way, the way appears. " I so fully know that.

      I was scrolling through your hubs, hoping to find the one about Pujaloy. But this one caught my attention, since you’ve mentioned Autumn in Dilsberg and how lovely it is. I'm drawn to these places now. And here in your poem is that train down below the peaks. It must be symbolic.

      How perfect! The beautiful music just finished as I'm finishing this! :)
