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



I was once trapped by desire.

Like Paris of ancient Greece,

In search of you, my Helen,

I flew on my longing; solicited the Heavens,

So that our heartbeats, could become one.

I grew wings, and with lofty words,

Cascaded the fragrances of emeralds in your Spirit.

Now my Beloved has painted a silhouette,

Of such magnificence, that it tantalises my Soul.

How I have longed for Love!

In my aloneness, I have touched It;

Kissed it; felt it pulsating in my Heart.

Now I shimmer in the rays of Thy resplendence;

Stab Your Delight into a million glows!

I am drunk with this sublime vintage, of Your nectar-wine.

Let me hold You in sacred stillness,

No breath between our emanations of fire,

Merging, dazzling; sparkling ... into the Joy of timeless Love.

I swoon in reverie; enter into a state of rhapsody,

Ever conscious of this Eternal moment;

Love has left behind me, all wishful engagements,

Of a seen or unseen tomorrow.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier, 25th April, 2015. ┬ęCopyrighted.

~Awakening The Inner Light~

The last one and a half lines, as well as inspirations, are taken from a loving comment from Harish Prasad, but the lofty and etherel style of poetry, is all my own. Gratitude, Harish.
