To:- Faith Reaper, for her love of exquisite beauty, of sweetness, sublimity and of Light ...

I'm rejoicing on the horizon's edge and dancing in the twilight.

My enthrallment with my cute Lover,

Has taken me to an abode of alluring delight.

The tears of joy flowing from my eyelids;

The feel of Her sweet palm and magical fingers

Running down my bosom, has transported me

To a compelling Silence, far, far away.

Searching endlessly for many winters,

I abandoned many charms.

Even my joy, my peace, my happiness ... all for my Lover -

The sole Giver; the Source of these beatitudes.

Now that She has bound me with Her Love,

I swoon in trance, drinking ceaselessly,

From Her cup of solace supreme.





Serenity | Source

I am now content.

I sit on 'dizzy' heights in the firmament,

In a stupor from heavenly wine and exquisite tranquility.

Here in this meadow of enchanting flowers,

We two Lovers ride as One on golden chariots;

Gaze and melt into the beauty of our Love,

And create our own Christmas's.

The melodious sounds of 'Silent Night' and 'Noel, Noel ...'

Resonate in our Essence, and the eloquence of the

Singing nightingale whispers sweetly in my Soul.

The stars glitter to honour and embrace our rapture,

As the moon, adorned with luminosity and grandeur,

Extend its invitation to reach out in excellence.

The pull of my Darling's Love overwhelms me,

And so I gaze beseechingly into Her eyes

And in Silence speaks: "Slowly, my Besotted."

My Beloved smiles and lifts my inner vessel with Her radiance,

As We sport and dance on an Everest of ecstatic bliss.

O, how I wish to remain in this rainbow of serenity and perfect Joy!

Rainbow | Source

Alas! All too soon, I find myself transported

To the chimes of Christmas bells.

The haunting melody of 'Hark The Herald Angels Sing',

Of snowflakes drifting outside my residence,

Suddenly arrest my attention, all

In tune with 'Glory to The Newborn King.'

I remain peaceful, as awake, as in my dream.

-Manatita, (Bard of Solace.)1st July, 2014.

The loftiness of human love

Have you experienced the' lifting' of human love to a sublime height?

      All your words are always beautiful, Faith, but this last sentence is most meaningful.

      "May God continue to bless you and may your heart always be full of love for others"

      This is what I wish for others and especially for you today. I trust that - by the comments here - you see how loved you are and this has to be a tribute to the many gifts that God has given you. But I believe you know this. Happy to be your friend. Om Shanti. Peace.

      Oh, my goodness, dearest Manatita! I am speechless after reading your beautifully expressed words of the love you have flowing out of your precious heart ... overflowing of love for all. God has blessed you with a beautiful gift of writing, loving and blessing others no doubt!

      Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful gift of words with us all to bless many. I am humbled that you would even think of me to write such lovely words here. I appreciate all of the precious comments by others here too.

      I am sorry I have been absent from HP here of late, and today is the first day in a bit that I have been able to read here, and what a special blessing I received this day.

      I hope to publish something inspirational soon. It has been a full summer for me.

      The HP community is so special and I am blessed to belong to such a community, especially with thoughtful and gifted writers such as yourself in the community.

      Voted up ++++ and away

      May God continue to bless you and may your heart always be full of love for others.

      (((Hugs))) and blessings and love

      Bluebird - by the time that Faith gets round to this, she will be very happy with so many glowing reports from her friends. I thank you with much sincerity for saying this.

      Of course it is easier to see beauty when you are truly inwardly beautiful yourself. Loving thoughts.

      VKWOK - Much love, my brother. Thanks for your continuing and special sentiments.
