To Your Heart-Beauty-Glow and Rainbow Sweetness. Thank You For Being my Friend.






Fly! Fly! Charmed Phoenix.

Carry your deathless and dauntless flame to my Soul,

And guide me to the ambrosial shores of Liberation.

Come, come! Sweet candle,

Bring me your fire of aspiration,

To show me the way, to the other Shore.

My Heart is burning for Peace;

I yearn to dance the rhythm of distant drums.

In this Field of Struggle,

Everything is meaningless, useless and utterly false.

“O Bird of Light, O Bird of Light,

Can you ignite a furnace in my Soul?

The Valley of Joy ever remains awake;

Yet the pain of sorrow never sleeps.

What a challenging paradox!

Come, my winged Redeemer,

Burn my ignorance of millennia.

Let me be drunk with the supernal wine

Of Your intoxications, where,

Lost in stupor, I will ride a carousel of Love,

To dine at the banquet, of the Fire of Blissful Silence.

- Manatita, The Lantern Carrier, 4th July, 2015. ©Copyrighted.

      Wow, I adore this! Peace is right around the corner in the place that suits you the most. I have pushed out all negative aspects when I am surrounded by nature, and one day I will always be there, doing good for the innocents at large. Thank you and may we all share in the bounty of true joy.
