Pruning And Dusting The Cobwebs of The Soul, To Grant You Love. A Sonnet

Updated on June 27, 2016

Manatita is an esteemed author living in London, UK. He writes spiritual books, flash fiction and esoteric poetry, his favourite genre.


To all those who seek encouragement and inspiration, while struggling with the vicissitudes of life

Come bury your sorrow.

The sun will shine again at another dawn,

And the nightingale gladden your Heart with its music.

New beginnings will spring forth from the birth of spring,

As the petunias blossom with delight.

True, you are in pain and your tears

Reach out to the ether, like sullen rain.

Mortals will try to console you,

But will not be able to comprehend your despair.

Only the Spirit can, and its mystic ways,

Dances with an effulgent beam, burning a lighted pathway,

Like the moon, deep within your aching Heart.

Ever embracing your sweet beauty,

It prunes and dusts the cobwebs of the Soul, to grant you Love.

Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. Copyrighted 27th June, 2016.

      Oh, I did not know, Dee. Please write to me. I am going to work, will call or write when I get back later. When did she pass? My deepest condolences. Wishing you much fortitude at this time. -Manatita

      I love the line, "dust the cobwebs of the soul". We all need that from time to time.

      When everything else fails, prune the roses and clean house. I love to do both and I love your sonnet! Beautiful!

      Or during spring or in Richmond Park and since you may not know it, then let's say At Poon Hill in Arnapurna, Nepal. Absolutely stunning!

      He he. Well, you are a Master, Cam. I'm learning from you. (chuckle) Seriously, I thank you for your sincere appreciation of my Hub. Yes, we esoteric poets love the dawn. Indeed we love promise, and like the paramour waiting for his elegant sweetheart, we get joy in the hope of things to come. Much Love.

      Eric, again another wonderful comment. Thank you so much, my Friend!
