Ode to the Rose, 2. A Free-style Sonnet-Ode to Rinita Sen

Pure symbol of Love, my dawn, my reverence;

The cross of floral sacrifices.

I came home to find you on my pillow, pink and

Red décor, stabbing at my heart-strings with Delight.


My soul a thousand smiles, you, finding a space within

Its sanctum, tugging at its joy with the allure of your fragrance;

Your radiance kissing the lotus feet of my Heart, into a synergy of new life.


O Light, my heavenly Light, touching a million lives each day,

The Grace of heaven dances on your bosom;

Sweet sunrise filling your breath, with its opulence supreme.


I see you, blushing with charisma, like the scarlet moon,

Dimpling your cheeks of intimacy, an invitation to souls,

To inhale the redolence of thy breath. Come! cute heavenly mystery,

Embrace this lowly shepherd, with the mellifluous rays of thy ancient secrets.


- Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 1st November, 2019

You Are That Melody, You Are That Love

The Prophet said: “O Lantern,

I am not here to teach you anything!

Not to speak of your joys and sorrows, nor to relate

The grandeur of another realm, however real that might be.


I suspect, that like me, you sometimes feel lonely and

Afraid, of that 'sweet urge' that drives your happiness.

I'm only a child, who wishes you to look into the innocence of my

Eyes. If you do, then Love will tell you of the values of spontaneity.


It will teach you of surrender … of the hidden secrets,

Already dancing in your Heart.

The same inner Lover that makes you drunk, sick, covet numerous

Desires; baptizes and chastises you, is always calling: 'Come! Come!


Listen to the melody of the soul, of how it sings,

Like the nightingale, composing its own songs.

So too the mind of silence weeps joyfully in solitude,

Of the innate glory and splendor of Love.


You are that melody; you are that Love.

I’m only your shadow, tuning the strings of your sitar,

So that the mellifluous Music from whence you came, will

Re-discover Its own sweetness, at the banquet of Her Majesty.


Come! Let us walk together. Serve, give … strive to be cheerful.

For I will only be happy, when we join in harmony and become One.


- Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. October 31st 2019

Beauty quotes

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” ― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Rumi on Love

Beauty quotes

“A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Festival of Lights

Divali Diyas (Lamps)
Divali Diyas (Lamps) | Source

On Love and Light

Light is synonymous with Love and Love with Light. There is an effulgence that mystifies and beautifies the soul, like a carousel of lanterns, lying in the bewilderment of Silence.

Light is universal and it has its own festival in the Garden of the Heart. This lustre of flowers; this acme of beautiful rainbows of the Beyond, has been expressed in myriad ways by all Faiths, Divali (Diwali) being the most recent.

We came from Light, we live in Light and at the end of our journey's close, we will return to Light. Hence it is paramount that we celebrate. We celebrate the good over evil or rather the transformation of the individual soul to the Soul Supreme … the victory of the One re-discovering or attaining his/her true nature.

The eye is the Light of God and the Heart is the Home of the Absolute. Souls like the Christ, Sri Krishna, Sri Chinmoy and others, come to tell us over and over again. No sweat, life is beautiful and we shall overcome some day. Jai Rinita! Jai Shaloo, Jai Venkatachariji, Jai Didiji Chitrangada Sharan, Jai Niki Khan and all my Indian friends. Jai, my very, very special Surabhi! Wahe Guruji Ka Khalsa ... Rajan Ji! Happy Divali!

Mere Prabhu, Jai Prabhu! Victory to Ram! Victory to Babaji Sri Guru Nanak DevJi! Om Shanti!

      Sweetheart (May I call you this?)

      You are on the button! I have wanted this so long! But I know nothing about you tube and its presentations. I see what's being done with Tagore and Rumi's poetry and they are so much more meaningful?

      It will happen with my poetry one day, but I need help. I have a couple done by Ashish Dadgaa and Al Laidlow in A Song for my Beloved:https://youtu.be/fMeMbC7zy54?t=6 So if you know how to help, I'll be very grateful. Om Shanti!

      Thank you for the heartfelt Diwali wishes through these exquisite verses. I feel like these poems should be converted into songs, with soulful instruments playing in the background, the likes of a sitar or a flute. May you should think about doing that (unless you already do). Lots of best wishes.

      Hi Shauna.

      I know my Sweet. One can only take so much. That is also God's will. We can only relate according to our capacity and receptivity. Me too.

      Many of us in fact, are meant to be where we are. Perhaps even Donald Trump! Once we see the holistic picture, Then we do not worry. It all works out at the appointed hour.

      Thank you so much. Light is an interesting thing. Even I can only take so much. The Temple has to be ready ... malleable, obedient ... life gets in the way but again, who gives life? See it this way if you can. Peace.

      Manatita, I can relate to these poems because they come from the human soul. As you know, I'm spiritual, but not religious. The bond that I have and the way I communicate with my higher power, brings me out of all the holes I dig for myself. I now dig fewer holes because I've gained knowledge, believe in myself, and recognize that a power beyond my earthly self is in my soul guiding me.

      That being said, please know that I read everything you post. I don't always comment because sometimes I simply can't relate to being enveloped by and living for the higher being.

      I'm still on the journey, but I'm on the path that feels right for me.

      Know that I love and appreciate you.

      Happy Dewali Manatita ji!

      Thanks so much for shedding so much light of love. You are the most amazing person on this earth to spread the light of love, light of God.

      God is light, and light is love. There is nothing in this world beyond this light. Every soul needs to realise it’s path of love to acquire God’s love.

      I loved all the quotes, poetry is just beyond any praise.

      We are indeed, so lucky to have you on hubpages, my friend.

      Namaste Bhaia ji!
