Namaste! With Welcome and much Love


Relationships, you are the breath of each new dawn,

Followed by the kiss of a peaceful sunset.

You invoke meaning in the emotions;

Calm the mind with each passing day.

Yet my joys are the sorrows of our yesterdays;

My tears the solace of our tomorrows.

Relationships, you speak to me of the beauty inside my Heart,

A rapport with an unseen, yet comforting Friend.

Thus I enter into His dance,

Cascading roses to the hope of new beginnings,

Filling me with the beauty of each morning’s sunrise.

Void is the full glass,

In a relationship encumbered by shadows.

Yet a glass can be sublimely empty,

In a reservoir in which relationships, deposit Love,

Empty ... of the stress acquired from work;

Bare ...of the toil of family struggles.

Sweet relationships, I am filled with the opulence of the moon,

The sun, mountains and nature’s rainbows,

Sitting with the promise of new horizons inside my Heart.

How I wish to blend,

Into the perpetual merging, of this, your timeless moment,

Immersed in the seed of your radiant bloom;

Yet waltzing in the fragrance of your blossoms.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 2nr May, 2015. Copyrighted.

      As always, you make sense of that which means naught to few, and your glow continues on, into the darkness.

      Thanks my sweet, Deergha. Even I do need to change sometimes. It is now:

      "...Yet my joys are the sorrows of our yesterdays;

      My tears the solace of our tomorrows...."

      But yes, two extremely powerful lines. Thank you for you constant and loving appreciations. Hari Om Tat Sat!

      Fantastic poem. The years when I was a marriage counselor taught me a lot about relationships, and your poem should have been on my wall!
