Sweet Love, You've Become My Constant Vision and My Song. To Ruby Jean Fuller (Always Exploring)

Updated on February 22, 2016

Removing the dark veil of illusion,

You entered via the Temple of the Sun,

Like a ray of radiant candles,

Beaming the resplendence of millennia.

No more the shadows of the night;

No more the ephemeral nature of pain and gain.

Now enfolded by Your grandeur, my Heart dances

To a new rhythm, re-awakening my Joys; my Delight.

Sweet Love! You’ve become my constant vision; my Song…

A symphony of splendour, endlessly streaming

Through this undeserving life, offering hope,

And countless blossoms for tomorrow.

My Soul looks at Your dazzling lustre;

At how You became a Jewel of Mercy like no other,

Entering my every pore,

My Rose, my Light; my ceaseless Sunbeam.

Beloved, You awakened my inner beauty; set me free;

Now I belong to You; You belong to me,

Even unto the immortal curtains of Eternity.

-Manatita, The Flame-Weaver. Copyrighted, 21st February, 2016.

~ Awakening The Inner Light ~



Come, Sweet Longing!

"Sweet longing, You who played the role of Sleeping Beauty for eons;

Awoke cascading garlands of rosebuds in the Soul ...Come!

The strong winds of Thy aroma drunkens me ...

And I swoon at the portals of perennial Bliss.

Cover my sweet inebriation, with Thy umbrella of protection.

...Come!" -Manatita

      I couldn't choose a favorite in your poll because all of the choices are special to me. I can, however, say that Ruby is one of my favorite people. Nice job, Manatita!
