Light in darkness

Although an avid reader, bright; passionate,

She had long struggled to comprehend his eloquence.

But today the portals of her Heart flung open,

And the majesty of the Light illuminated her darkness.

Now she smelt the wafts of sunflowers,

Rustling in the breeze; the whisper of butterflies,

Lighting up their natural habitat.

Amidst all this, the flautist captivated her Heart,

As she held the sacred parchment,

Its flute playing a remarkable symphony

As if tuned by Love.

Not so long ago, she had tugged at this same calfskin,

Trying needlessly to pull the snow from flakes,

Which waltzed within a calligraphy of words sublime.

Only it was not doable, and Almeida comprehended it not.

But now she heard the murmuring of melliferous bees;

Tasted their honey, as the might of the ocean

Lashed against the shoreline.

She would not question his words again,

For, like Love, good poetry has no cause or reason.

Like an astrolabe of God’s secrets,

It glides through the luminosity of the Sun,

Dancing in the Heart of Lovers, until one day,

A supernal beauty springs forth,

Exploding into fragments of ineffable Delight.

It is then that the joyful tears of the Lantern Carrier,

Will convey silently, the jubilant tidings of Golden Rain.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. ©Copyrighted 3rd December, 2015.

      Hi My Sweet. Going out in a minute. Christmas duties call plus Poetry Cafe this very night in the City.

      I am only the grain of sand that looks up to see if I can see Rumi, Tagore, Kabir ....

      I can see only my Teacher. But only because He has never left! Gratitude ...gratitude ...gratitude.

      Yes, yes! I am a lover of esoteric poetry, especially the ones which come straight from the core of Heart, as the case is in Manatita’s poetry. Great poetry as usual! Wise use of words… beautifully woven. What a delight… rejuvenates many hearts… Hari Om!

      What a sweet thing to say, my Dana.

      I saw a beautiful Muslim girl at Poetry Café. She was drumming with her sister to their own compositions, taken from the words of Rumi and Bulleh Shah. She spoke sweetly and eloquently, of the importance of words, and the energy and vibration that they carry .... the importance of being careful ...

      So I try, my Sweet Dana, I try. Much gratitude and God bless.

      Hi Alysia. I have added the word 'mojo' to one of my poems. Not yet published. Maybe it will help your 'slightly tired' wings. Mines too, He he.

      Thank you for gracing my Hub and much gratitude for your loving support. So glad you like it. Much Love.
