Matchless are these Jewels of immortal time,

No clock can beat the cadences of your rhyme.

Here insight, Love; much depth of Light assured;

Alive the blissful portals, of Love’s abode.

An ever-effulgent rainbow is the Sun,

Peeling of the layered structures of the Dawn.

Which like an unfolding flower’s tapestries,

Rise to Delight in glorious majesties.

Your peerless rhythm, each loving Heart imbibes,

Man, beast, firmament, flower or distant tribes.

Singing a diamond rhapsody in the Soul,

Each tiny vein your Eternal breath unfolds.

Thy beat the rivers gush ‘midst Oceans red,

Flow not to deny, but sing your praise instead!

      Very smooth, perfect cadence, and the message is undoubtedly well targeted.

      "Peeling the layered structures of the dawn" is my favorite line in this beautiful poem, Manatita. Dawn unfolds like a morning glory. Its beauty comes alive in a matter of seconds.
