I Rise To The Magic of Myriad Sonatas Singing in My Soul

Beauty always lends itself to my enchantments.

With tearful eyes, some days I'm filled to the brim.

This Heart transports life’s energies,

Like raindrops from Heaven.

I evoke memories of a distant past,

When all was peerless, timeless and immortal.

My Beloved is playing His ceaseless,

Birthless and Eternal game,

And I sit on His bosom in this Vision.

I was once weighed down by many chasms,

But I now rise to the starlit hue of Autumn.

I rise to the Light of Heaven;

I rise to the beacons at the Gates of Paradise;

I rise to the magic of myriad sonatas, singing in my Soul.

Still I rise

What is failure?

      And I thank you also, Reynold. So happy that you finally graced this page.

      I have visited your artistic looking book. Excellent cover! Should do well and so best wishes with the launch. It may help to put a preview on HubPages, highlighting the cover at the same time.

      No, I do not know anyone right now. Merry Christmas and much Love.

      Hi Manatita--Gosh, what an honor to have all this acclaim heaped upon me. I'm happy you wrote me today as I had no idea of this. I could very well be a heavenly message to get "Lean against the Wind" re-launched in February with a new cover that features new art--an angel now adorns the cover. Find the new cover here--*Versi...

      In that the main character is an angel, it was a slam dunk! I found the art at fine arts America where I have a lot of art friends and Rosalie Scanlon was a sweetheart to help out. If you know anyone who might read it and become a lifelong friend, I'd be happy to set them up.

      Thank you for this honor. I must say that no one has ever written a poem and dedicated it to me!!!

      Thank you.

      What a lovely poem on a very profound topic. Thank goodness that defeat is not in my vocabulary.

      Hi Swalia.

      Yes, for some reason you had entered my thoughts. Hope all is well. Much Love to you, Dear Swalia. Gratitude ...much.

      This is something I really needed to hear at the moment. Defeat is temporary but losing hope is what makes it permanent. I thank you for this beautiful reminder!

      Wow! Manatita! How did you write so beautifully? Immaculately splendid! I’m proud of you.

      Yep, failures are like cobbled roads. It is wise to consider ‘failure’ a temporary defeat rather than a permanent stigma. Your very first line signals an inspiration, ‘I Rise to the Magic of Myriad Sonatas Singing in My Soul’ – quite a spontaneous way of bringing out the zeal and potential hidden in our weaknesses as humans. It’s commendable how you use ‘Beloved’ in an esoteric way to cite God. Yes, indeed the Lord does play His ceaseless, Birthless and Eternal game. I’d say the Lord then leaves a flame inside us to rekindle the fire when failure strikes.

      You know, it’s like this – the waves which swept away the castles of sand, remind us to come out of the dreams, to come out of the materialistic world; the illusionary galaxy, and just focus on touching the very zenith of reality which the God Almighty has given.

      This is a very wonderful sonnet on overcoming defeat(s). There is always a sunrise after a dark night. Very uplifting Sonnet, Manatita. Bravo! Cheers!

      Ha ha ha, Bill.

      I do not have an extremely beautiful and loving wife, and I do not know that I'm as regular and organised as you, Bro. I cannot do gardening, and my handicrafts skills leaves a lot to be desired. He he.

      So you see, the Divine always compensates. (chuckle, chuckle) Love you, Bro.

      Vellur, I thank you. Why don't you tell us or even me about Dubai? I know that a new Sikh Temple went up there about a year ago. Interesting progress. Very happy that you visit my Hubs, and I thank you very much. In Love and Light.

      How do you do this? It would take me a week to crank out a poem and then it would be infantile. You do this daily and they are all beautiful.

      Blessings to you...and Reynold Jay...good men both.

      My Dear Patricia,

      I thank you! Yes, cool, isn't it, this phrase. It's so real in our lives. My Gratitude for your love and endless angels.

      Al, you also have one. It's called "words." Written just before this one, I think. Always a joy and Gratitude to see you, Bro.

      Chicago, eh? I might have told you, we gave a big Concert there in 1993. It was the 100th Centenary of the Parliament of World Religions, which I did attend. My best wishes to you and wishing you God's Love, as always.

      Beautiful weaving of words and thoughts. Wonderful poetry. Enjoyed the magic of sonatas singing in soul. It is a wonderful experience.

      You are non-stop manitita. Jay deserves such tastefulness (being from my neck of the woods). I continue to be lifted by this sonata as well. This was great for such a profound writer/contributor to Hub Pages.
