In the Meadow of Enthralling Love. (POEM) by Manatita
So many fragrances this evening!.
Who can speak for the heart of a Lover in countless splendour?
I have finally found the road I need to travel,
And acquiesce to the salutations of the crescent moon.
I know now that Love is not to have, but simply be.
Not in struggle have I found fulfillment,
But in a transcendent peace from birth to birth.
I was once like trampled grass.
But my fibres, unyielding,
Gave shoots to the heart of infinity,
Serenading Your unspoken charm.
Now I only imbibe Your beauty,
Drink only from Your chalice of ecstasy supreme.
Radiance and Freedom
The Beauty of Love
I remember, even though you’re seated in my heart,
I once felt an endless loneliness.
You constantly slipped through my fingers,
And Love was not easily caught.
Morose and burdened by expectations,
I grew saddened day by day.
Now that I am alive in Your stillness,
What should I fear?
You have illumined my longing,
By the precious pull of Your Love.
Beloved, I salute eternity,
In order to comprehend Your wonders.
I know only that when We are together,
Time gets lost in our togetherness;
This is real.
Love and Longing
Is Longing Necessary?
So let the gates of our unsung happiness,
Open In this forest of our dreams,
Glorifying the beauty of yon twinkling Stars;
The immersion of Your Cosmic Light.
Let my dimly lit inner candle,
Burn aglow with the fire of intense sweetness;
All things sing Your glory,
In this meadow of enthralling Love.
