We come and then we go. We need our spaces.

The wind blows and caresses our longings,

Then fades to Nature’s call.

Meanwhile the seasons wait.

The tide rises, and the tide falls;

Then the ocean becomes still.

Amidst all this, God emerges and soothes our Souls.

What can I say of Life’s constant longing to fulful itself?

The Path is never smooth.

Like turbulent waters,

It meanders and flows through murk,

Only to become clean and smooth again, then carries on.

The river of Grace is ever pruning, digging at the reeds,

Which may seem to appear in others,

Yet lurks silently in my own weaknesses.

My sweet Lord, how I long to be strong for Your many Lovers,

Calling out my name!

Instead, lost in darkness, my blindfold takes me

To desert places and stormy nights;

I hurt the sensitive spirits of Your children.

Stay! My cute Damsel. Patience! Tarry a wee while.

This child lingers a little and is in need of Fortitude.

For the most part, I feel enchained by Destiny.

Seemingly dancing on my forehead.

Grace, Sweet Grace, carrying the illumining fire of the One,

You shed Light on the malady of the Spirit,

And act as a loving booster to the Soul.

Stay! My sweet Lantern-Carrier,

Rein your compassion-flooded waters down like powerful currents,

Removing my unpleasantness of millennia, to grant me LOVE.

-Manatita, Word-crafted Awakenings. 29th December, 2014. Copyrighted.

      You see, Bro.

      I always say that you understand my poems. Yes, life's sojourn is a necessary struggle. Ultimately a very sweet and beautiful one but a long and sometimes troublesome one. Much peace.

      You have written a great poem about the struggles we have to overcome the negative. I love how this poem has a confessional sound to it and how you seem to be using the poem as a way to find answers. Very well done I enjoy and learn from your poetry. Jamie

      Yes, indeed. We must go where we are called, then leave when our mission is accomplished...

      We all have times of weakness. We are human but forever seeking forgiveness and a closer walk with God. Beautifully expressed...

      1. Disobedience

      2. Impurity

      3. Ego

      4. Attachment

      5. Anger

      Greed seems to be the only major one missing. But I do not believe this. The subtle ones are just as powerful. He he he. Anything else?

      Be careful what you ask for. Much peace.

      I thought you were going to list all your transgressions (smiling); not true. I identify with your gratitude for God's grace.

      Show me a man who says he has no weaknesses and I'll show you a man I have no desire to know. :) Beautiful as always my friend.
