Let me Flow, Unimpeded, in the River of Perennial Love. An Offering to Peggy Woods

Updated on June 9, 2017

In Love and Light


Sacred Intimacy

My Sweetheart, I see You in rainbows,

The stars … the moon … the rustling winds;

In a variety of delicate choreography.

You are a lustred Artiste,

And I am your footstool.

How can I ever thank you

For this gift of excellence?

You are my flower-garden,

And its fragrance too.

You’re my Ocean of serenity,

For Your storms heal my Soul.

I have come all this way,

Only to kiss Your sweet lips;

To dance in the fire of Thy radiant flames.

Yet You carried me all along.

Feeling low


I felt You in my wound and in the waltz of ego;

In my fears and in the dark shades of war.

Your golden Light, like a sacred canopy,

Protected me all along.

O my Beloved! Your fire-side is so enchanting!

Come! Come! Sweet invitation!

The winter’s gone;

The summer streams an effulgent ray.

Do wrap me in the fire of Your embrace;

To let me flow, unimpeded,

In the river of perennial Love.

Manatita, The Lantern Carrier, Copyrighted, 7th June, 2017.

River of Light and Love


Saying of Sri Chinmoy

"The face of truth is found only in longing,

In the longing for truth.

Not only the face of truth,

But the very heart of truth,

Is to be found only in the longing itself."



Quote from a Seer

"He who has the inner illumination, knows that his existence on Earth, is the embodiment of God and his actions are the expressions of God. he feels that he is never the doer; he is a mere instrument." _ Sri Chinmoy

Rumi's, 'Only Breath.'

      Chucke, chuckle ...

      My first book, Forty Roses For my Lord Supreme, was published long ago. My book to come, Blossoms of the Heart, is overdue. I need time and help and I will take a break from Hub Pages to do this. At 65, I feel tired most days and I also suffer from chronic fatigue.

      Still, I have the title, the cover, the Foreword and the vision. I just need a Publisher and a decent artiste/artist, as well as time. I do have My Guru, Sri Chinmoy - a book - on Amazon and I'm nearly finished with Maxims for our Children.

      You're very kind. If you have any ideas, then we can explore them together. Loving thoughts.

      What a beautiful poem! I feel honored that you dedicated it to me. Like Nadine, I truly loved the quote at the end by Sri Chinmoy.

      Have you ever considered writing a book of poetry? If not, you should. You have a gift!

      Ah, Nadine. Thank you so much! Appreciated.


      Thank you so much!! Perhaps they are reminding you of your own Love. That is what the Seers do. You are a cauldron of a very 'sweet' and loving fire. Praise be!!

      You melt my heart with the imagery of your words.

      Frederick R. Barnard, who published a piece commending the effectiveness of graphics in advertising stated "One look is worth a thousand words" (Printer's Ink, December 1921.)

      Your words, my dear friend, create a thousand images. There is no limit to the breadth and depth and scope of love, and that is what you gift us in your eloquence.
