Nature's Silence-Beauty-Peace


Here In this vast canopy of constellations,

Clouds unfold their palms and part.

The radiance of this heavenly romance,

Shimmers on the blue waters of the horizon.

The skylark heralds an enchanting melody,

While daffodils mimic, a waltz down below.

Hyacinths and primrose unfurl their blossoms,

Offering fragrances, as a sacrifice to Mother Earth.

Nothing dies here, but a fleeting shadow.

Magnolias rise to emit a purple smile;

Azaleas waltz, to the symphonies of canaries.

The grey mist of winter has dissipated,

A new dawn of verdant hue, camellias and tulips,

Proclaims a pageantry of colour, to make me whole again.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. ©Copyrighted, 20th March, 2017.

~ Awakening The Inner Light ~



The Beat of Spring

"The cosmos beats an enthralling melody;

As the flute of the flora resonates its grandeur.

Wafts of Love emanates from fawn and foliage;

I behold the elegance of roses and Lavenders.

Light streams a Love into the malady of the Heart;

Darkness disperses as hope soars in my core.

O Lantern, the Spring of the Soul cleanses all ails,

Removing my loneliness, to grant me Peace." -Lantern Carrier, 21st march, 2017. Copyrighted.

      Hello my friend.

      This is beautiful. I feel honored and grateful. I happened to do a google search using my name and among all the links, this poem was placed first, at the very top of the page.

      Even before I read "pageantry of colour" in your last line of your first poem, I knew I would comment on the colorful scenery your were painting. The light and sound in the second are also appealing. Thanks.
