How I Long For The Aroma of That Last Kiss. To Ruby Jean Fuller, With Much Love.

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


A spark of memory; a moment upon the wind,

And You have left me in longing.

Day and night I pine,

With a Heart made desolate by Thy absence.

All around me, the sweet roses

Of Your splendour, I see.

Yet my cup is half-empty, and forlorn is my cry.

Ah! How I treasure the aroma,

Of that adorable last kiss!

The ecstasy of its allure,

Still lingers in a Heart on Fire,

Calling out Thy name. Come! My Beloved,

Let me cascade trinkets at Your feet.

Cementing an ever-meaningful bond,

Known only to the unutterable,

In the luminosity of the Soul.

-Manatita, The Lantern carrier. ©Copyrighted. 18th November, 2015.

~ Awakening The Inner Light ~


The sweet beauty of the Light

Where is Your beauty most?

See results

The Light of The Soul dazzles our outer experiences, remaining as a candle without flicker. Lost in equipoise, ever burning with a naturally higher frequency of Delight. O Bard of Solace, when this happens, all the externals become useless, meaningless and utterly false.

      That's actually my strength, Sweet Surabhi. When I am talking to or expressing longing to the Supreme. You did this nicely today in your amazing poem. Now you've taken over, or almost. You need consistency. That is all. He he.

      This was truly flamboyant. In fact, immaculate! The longing for the Supreme has been endearingly expressed here. Love... love... love it. Much peace.

      I believe that our meaning in this current life will be revealed just before it is about to leave the present for most of mankind.
