Ode to Adversity. A free verse Sonnet
Ode to Adversity
She kissed my Heart,
Nature walked me to the moon
And we both cradled my struggles.
I pine in the handicap of my afflictions,
Adorned by Love, unfolding its own secrets;
Singing its own mysterious songs.
Here in this bodily temple,
Her dauntless Will pushes me,
To manifest the Beloved’s dream unique.
Everything really does happen for a reason,
And while one may not comprehend this veil of darkness,
‘Tis but a shadow interwoven, with the colours of His Light.
Adversity dyes me in shadows, only to invoke the Bridegroom of the sun;
All continues to happen, for the progression of my soul.

The Glory of Thy Love. A free verse Sonnet
They say ‘the sky is the limit’, true,
Yet she’s naught but an ant,
In the Heart of a true Lover.
The sun and moon nourish the cosmos;
Replenishes the Earth. Steeped in the mystery
Of ecstasy, the twinkling stars cascade Your elegance.
I stand in awe of the beauty of sunset,
Shedding its shimmering rays on the horizon.
Yet all these illustrious luminaries, O Love,
Are contained in the echoing silence of Thy breath.
They say the sky is the limit, true,
Yet all that is lost in ignorance, transforms only
By an effulgent fire, hidden in the resonance of Stillness.
O Weaver, what is this puny sky, compared to the glory of Thy Love?
Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 27th April, 2019.
Does this strengthen us?
