With Love and Beauty from My Heart to Yours Marlene, The Spiritual Heart.

I strive to fly, like a butterfly,

To live like the horizon …like a rainbow,

Somewhere between Heaven and Earth.

My Heart pines in its aloneness,

And I have made a covenant with the nightingale,

Borrowing the sweet songs, that serenade Thy presence.

O Love, here in this ascended realm of Light and Beauty,

I pluck scarlet tulips from Your lips,

As the orchids of my Heart reciprocate their fragrance.

Come! Cascade Your garlands of diamonds to infinitude;

While weaving a symphony of Your musical rhythms,

Swaying and waltzing in my intoxicated Soul.

Cute Lover, today I have tasted the Chalice of Thy heavenly wine;

I’ve become dazed in a maze of delightful meadows, calling out Thy name.

Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. Copyrighted, 17th July, 2016.

      Ha ha. Thank you my Darling. Marlene is my very special friend. A good and noble woman!

      Thank you, Marlene. Appreciated. Yours is definitely for the Lord. One can be more inspired by reading it with this insight. But again, I believe you also know that. Just trying to show how much you mean to me, to the God within. Much Love.
