My Heart is Burning With Love, an Offering to Dora Isaac Weithers

Updated on June 3, 2017

Heart on fire with Love


Rose garden, an oasis of sorts


Pouring its Supernal Rhapsody Into my Soul

My Heart is burning with Love;

I long to share this flame.

My smile reaches out to those in torments,

Touching their core with its rays.

From without, there is only the dance of beauty;

Within, I see only a shimmering Light.

Drunk and reeling from the kiss

Of this Stranger’s wine,

All seems momentarily alive.

The birds call, the trees sway with music;

Within this oasis of Lovers,

I see simply the spark that dances ...gracefully.

Come! Come!

Today the Bird of my Heart desires everyone!

I am mute in the core of its sweetness,

And the Soul weeps with the Bliss of Union.

Join the feast—this banquet of the Beloved,

Pouring its supernal rhapsody in my Soul.

_Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. Copyrighted, 3rd June, 2017.

      Ah, Dee,

      You're home! I'm jealous. More books to read and more inspirational reviews, I suppose.

      Thank you so much for coming. You're my numero uno and a few others are close behind. Love to the children and grandchildren.-Manatita
