Ode to The Newborn: A Sonnet.


“A thing of beauty, is a joy forever.” Says, Keats.

Such is your opalescent glow,

Upon entering this cosmic flow.

Like sweet-scented candles, glowing on leaves of balm;

Floating across a fragrant pool of jasmines

On a moonlit night,

So too, do you stir my spirit,

Thrill my heart, and elevate my joy.


Newness, innocence, light … purity immaculate.

O Breath of the Supernal Truth,

As you sleep restfully,

In the cradle of your tomorrow’s sun,

Do resonate your virtues deep within;

Illuminate my darkness-mind, and grant me Peace.

– Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 12/8/13. Copyrighted.

      I recently wrote about this very subject. The innocence of a young child....qualities we sorely need as adults.

      You said it beautifully my friend.

      blessings always

      You're a genuine fan, Vkwok. I appreciate this immensely. I will be on pilgrimage in NY for the next two weeks and may not write much. Hope all is well. God bless your loving heart.

      Did not remember telling you but was thinking of you a lot while there. Wanted to contact you and invite you to our public Songs of The Soul music festival. Never mind. Next time.

      Thank you so much,Margarita.

      They remind me of purity such as the snow and beauty of Christmas: Lights, jingling bells, prayer, joy ...

      Much appreciated comment. Wishing you an abundant and most promising 2014.

      You have used every word that describes the feelings I have when holding my children. As a side note I am letting Elias sleep on my chest now. I love how you decided on sonnet as your form. Thank you for this poem. Jamie

      My pleasure. So happy you visited and liked it. I gave it to a husband where I am going to recite tonight (Sufi night), he gave it to his wife and she really liked it. They asked if it was mine. I laughed. How were they to know that all my works are original..?

      Yes, I have a line there for Elias sleeping on your chest. (smile)I think that this is a most wonderful thing to do. God bless, my Friend.
