I see Your myriad plans unfolding, like the lotus.

My gaze fixed on the promises of tomorrow’s blossoming dreams.

The Earth yields, giving freely of its plenitude.

Day and night the Mother sings and dances to Her own cadences,

In rhapsody supreme.

Her rainbows caress and soothe my longing;

A divine spark fixed on the luminosity of the crescent moon.

I feel the life-breath of Gratitude; of adoration in my Heart,

As the Spirit rises to the sweet drops of tears within.

Singing Alleluia! My very Essence lifts upwards and inwards to the firmament.

The Sacred Silence kisses my brow,

It’s Word a pulsing in my Heart.

I give thanks on bended knees;

A Soul in obeisance embraces; pays homage to the Cosmic Will….unspoken.

-Manatita, (Bard of Solace) 15th November, 2014. © Copyrighted.

      Hariprasad,

      It's a joy to write for you. You understand my work so well!

      Prahlad was a great Bhakta; like Narada, a great devotee of the Lord. One day, Bro, one day. I'm not there as yet. Your very powerful sentiment about my work is noted. One day. Yes. One day, Bro. These beautiful flowers will spread or cascade their fragrance far and wide with the Mother's Will allowing. I will begin to compile them soon.

      My most gracious thanks and pranams to you. Salutations!

      Phyllis is a very affable and kind person and she has such a plethora of wisdom in her bosom.This is a very lovely and glorious tribute to a very compassionate lady.

      You are such a charming bhakta ( devotee), and I 'm sure what nectar you poured out here so lovingly is the prasad( pleasure) showered on you by the Great and very Compassionate Mother. We are also blessed with such a sweet prasad.

      You being so deep in Spirituality, I think of you as modern Prahlad. Your good work will sprout into a beautiful flower one day. Thank you. Voted up and shared.

      Yes, Faith.

      We are all one really. Some of us know this and some don't. Again, even for those who know, like ourselves, we still slip sometimes. Who knows the ways of the Lord? Much mehta (Loving kindness)

      Yes, my Friend. All is well. Right now all my friends are probably looking at England vs South Africa in Rugby, then for a Divine feast and social chat later on with lots of goodies.

      As to me, well, I'm here at the computer, Bro. Aaaah! sob, sob. I will also go to Poetry Café p.m soon. Thanks a lot, Bro. Much appreciation.
