Mother's Love: For International Women's Day. Sunday's Inspiration 15, to Devika Primic
Estuaries are necessary, for a larger pond;
Rivers are harbingers, of the mighty Ocean.
Life-coaches are necessary, for health and wealth,
Motivators inspire vibrancy; cause shadows to melt.
Messiah’s are crucial, to take us Above,
Mothers reminds us, of enduring Love.
Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 7th March, 2020
They toil and suffer, our lives to make better,
Like the sun and the moon, they always worship.
Pay homage to filth, or joys and endeavour,
When our lives are improper, their love runs deep.
Their sweet sacrifice offers, its fragrance-rose,
The wafts of their selflessness, comes from God's Light.
A heart filled with beauty, its service exposed,
The joy of their dear ones, their only delight.
Hear you, O my children, when mothers express,
Their heart's soulful tears--your many afflictions.
Their sorrowful soul, struggles hard to redress,
The toil that you bear; your many distractions.
Their devotion's will; rainbow-heart-tears-concern,
They offer their children, what's second to none.
Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 12th May 2018.
When I say: “I Love you!”, I wish to hear the
Echoing of these three tiny words, on perennial galaxies,
Extolling your sacrifice with copious tears.
I know that your agony of Spirit; Your sleepless concern,
Has travelled a million journeys; burnt in the travails of sorrow,
To teach me beauty and character, out of your purest Love.
We two, are like a leaf and its shadow.
You, the leaf, resilient, spilling its dreams on the mirror of life;
Me, your shadow, that inseparable seed from thy embryo.
Our tides rise and fall; rise and fall, as if into
A winter’s abyss, yet soars again, when yon daffodils and
Hyacinths, proclaim the new grandeur and redolence of spring.
Mother, I saw thy endless patience - a badge of courage -
Offering up your soul for my redemption, heart spilling
The glory of snow-white tears in your struggle, until dawn
Came as a solace to your nakedness; a balm to thy afflictions.
I have seen your river of tears -- an invisible spark burning –
Yet unwavering and steadfast, even in the fiercest storms.
I see you, a dauntless Empress, bobbing and weaving,
Against a pendulum of currents, determined to push you
Backwards. But the full moon enters your core with its lustre,
Flooding thy being with its indigo rays. The heart radiates,
Pulling at the energy of the sun, giving you the light
To remain unconquerable, in the face of adversity.
Manatita, The lantern Carrier. 29th February, 2020
Ode to The Divine Mother
Maternal One, Thou art an ever new,
Eternal child of selfless suffering.
Thy body bears the cross of Earth --
A trillion years injustice to Thy womb.
Your bloodstained heart doth bleed with glee,
So happy with Thy sacrifice for me.
O Sustainer of infinite joy,
You uphold all the good a Mother can possess.
Thy overflowing fountain of sweet love,
Pours its bliss-laden nectar to the core,
Intoxicating me from pore to pore,
With thrills of peace sublime and deep.
Oh Mother! You bear Thy burden well!
Carrying this heavy weight of mine,
Thy shoulders red, but no deserved tear You ever shed.
Who can equal Your forgiveness?
Your sheltering arms,doth from the Father
Take away the whip, and,
Cradling Your world to sleep,
Bears silently the sorrows of ingratitude. - Manatita 23/02/04.
