Everything Eventually recedes; Everything Eventually Blossoms. A Sonnet, By Manatita

Updated on November 9, 2014

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


The tide rises, and then gradually diminishes in intensity.

Like a river, the sea recedes,

Only to gain momentum for a greater mass.

Leaves drop from their foliage

And return to their natural roots.

Even a heart of greed will one day blossom,

Into a sea of love. Everything eventually subsides;

Everything eventually blossoms.

In quest of its own self-transcendence,

The Cosmic Will commands the night to fade,

And guides the Light through shadows.

Everything eventually subsides; again,

Everything eventually blossoms.

-Manatita 9th February, 2014. Copyrighted.

      Hello, I see that you are a writer of poetry and seeker of spirit yourself! I am pleased to make your acquaintance. I have not been active on HubPages lately but see that you are friends with some of my friends here, and I am not surprised. :-)

      This poem is lovely and wise. I appreciate its acceptance of light with shadow, life with death. Many blessings to you! ~Lurana
