My bed was not always strewn with roses,

Dancing in the Hearts of paramours and Lovers alike.

I am a sojourner, like others,

And my Path was once challenged,

By an abyss of loneliness and despair.

But now my HOPE sparkles, like a playmate,

And is calling me: “Come! Come!”

Today the Light of my Supernal Lover,

Beckons me to the Celestial Gate.

No more malware, trojans or viral caverns.

The inner hunger has pressed ‘delete.’

All my shadowy hackers are vanquished;

I have re-booted to the original excellence,

Of my perennial HOME.

      Yes, Patricia, you're so right. I also know that you have had to dive deep within and came out infinitely more beautiful. You and yours ...God bless you all. Let us pray for one another. His spirit is with us. Much Love.

      definitely believe that if we can tread the troubled waters and come out well on the other side then it has been a good thing....

      fortunately that has been what has happened in my life...

      this was beautifully orchestrated, Manatita....

      Angels are once again on the way to you ps

      Great use of the computer terminology - nothing like exiting the digital world for the celestial world. As always, I'm in awe at your ability to craft words together into a tapestry of magic.

      Manatita, this is very clever. You've found a way to send your message far and wide by alluding our spirits to the world of technology. Even today's young 'uns will understand.

      Beautifully expressed!

      I enjoyed the computer analogy as this is the familiar language of today. Great to see a combination of heart and brain in your beautiful poem. Lovely pictures too! Thank you!

      He He Mary. Thank you. Maybe I should start using attire, right? Raiments ...Halloween is near! (smile) Thank you so much! Yes, ever-seeking innovative ways. 'Cool.'

      BlossomSB,

      I agree. Can't beat the Heart. A little diversity from time to time is not bad ... much Love.

      So well written! I, too, enjoyed the analogy, although I think our brains are better than a computer as we have a heart, which you show so well in your writing.

      Yes, a great analogy and one the youth of today can relate to well. Comparing 'yourself' to a computer puts things in perspective in a new and fresh way. Beautifully done my friend.

      brilliant . The images used describe about the poem very well. I liked the way you used the technical terms viruses, delete, reboot.

      What will I do without you, my Didiji.

      You're beating Bill to first. Not an easy thing to do. I guess his circle is now too huge.

      Sometimes I comment on others work, and then I say: "Wow! Did I write this!" Then I use it to create another poem. My poetic eye sees this in the response of others also. So here is a challenge for you. Turn this into another poem:

      "HOPE sparkles. It's a golden bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is like a stygian moon." Make it an Ode to Hope. Remember, Ode's praises, adulates ...look at my Ode to the Red Rose or Ode to the Eternal Flame. Lots of Love.

      P.S. Remember, be objective to your Bhaiyaji. If it lacks something, say so. In e-mail, of course. Om Shanti!

      This took my breath away! An impeccable masterpiece here! Carry on... Bhaiya-ji. Yes, yes, HOPE sparkles. It's a golden bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is like a stygian moon.
