Lavender field Meadow


... and Remembering American National Poetry Month

Here in this meadow, I’ve caught Your Love;

Together we lie as One, in a place beyond sorrow.

Speech does not matter now,

As the Soul will not be fooled.

Indeed She’s too busy,

Lost in the greatness, of a resplendent Realm.

I have clipped the wings,

Of the struggle between Light and Shadow;

Realised the Truth of my ancestors.

Here in this Ocean of perennial sweetness,

I know only the Sacrament of the Present Moment.

The Celestial Fire of the Beloved,

Flows freely as a gentle boon from Heaven;

I submerge and bathe myself, in a river of ever-effulgent Light.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. ©Copyrighted. 25th April, 2015.

      Yes, Brother Jamie. He is quite refreshing and reassuring, with a calming and inspirational influence. Thank you so much! Love to the children. Much Light.

      Venkatachari, I thank you. Much appreciated and much gratitude.


      I thank you, and yes, nature is very powerful and in places like Bali and some parts of India, etc, it can really meditate for you. God bless.

      Jodah, So glad you like both the images and the poem. Many Higher blessings this holiday week-end here in the UK.


      I thank you and truly appreciate your input. My poems are esoteric and mystical. Here I am describing spiritual states.

      Whonu, glad to see you and happy that you approve. Thanks for your kind visit.

      Shyron, I wrote you a poem. Look for it. Appreciations for your sentiments here. In Love and Light

      Hi manatita.


      ... seems to me as a sound of silence speaking quite loudly the original state of a man in the Garden before giving up on divine resemblance...

      Up and interesting .

      Peace with us.

      Well, my Dear Chitrangada,

      You are from the land of Ramakrishna, Mirabai, Ramana Maharshi, Sri Ram and Sri Krishna, as well as the Buddha, Sri Chaitanya and a visit from the Christ. So I do not expect anything less than Silence. Persevere, and may the Supreme Mother bless your Soul and grant you Peace. Much Gratitude.

      Very expressive poem, lovely pictures and a beautiful tribute to a wonderful hubber.

      I love light music and it has a calming effect I believe. But I prefer to pray in silence. It helps me to connect with the 'Supreme.'

      Thank you for this inspiring hub!

      I've posted on my blog, but haven't posted on HP yet this month. I have a couple of ideas, tho. My time has been spent elsewhere, but I'm not gone - just a little slow in posting. Thanx for asking!
