Lighting the flame of longing in my Heart,

I feel an earnestness beyond compare!

I ascend with a meteoric rise,

To the gateway of another realm.


I become a kindle in Your firmament,

Thus entering the portals of an inner sanctum,

Where a tapestry of flowers, adorn Thy sweet frame.

Inside this unknowable realm, my Delight knows no parallel;

Your fragrance becomes sweet-scented candles,

Glimmering in my Soul.


"O Beloved, You’ve emblazoned a Pathway to become my Host,

While dancing with the elegance of Shiva.

I swoon in rhapsody, to the melody of the soundless Sound,

And the fire of Love, burning in my Soul."

      Yes, Bro. A timeless message. I believe that she would love this. I offer her what little that God has given me, and sometimes I take from her. Giving and receiving, in this game of life.

      Your sentiments are always touching, and you write with a very beautiful and enlightened mind, my dear Brother. God bless us all. Alleyuia!Glory be!

      Note: This poem is addressed to the Absolute.

      When I need a lift I come and read Manitita along with the music that is presented with exquisite sonnets of amazing Hub Community people. What a high pedestal that is deserving for Surabhi. She has the inspiration of a goddess according to your sonnets written to her and of her own even. May she forever remain "down to earth" amazing.

      My Sweet, what can I say? You outdo me every time. Not that you seek such a base competition, but your humility and power lies in your being so immaculately true to yourself; to Love ....

      I treasure our Friendship, and yes, like your lotus leaf, this Friendship lies, like a sweet butterfly, within the seeds of its cocoon, waiting to burst forth into infinity.

      So glad you enjoyed and appreciated this Hub. Shivaya Om!

      Yes, my Brother Bill. So important! Let me sing her a Divine song:

      God gives my Heart, from his Heart.

      A very special ray."-Sri Chinmoy.

      HHAPPY BIRTHDAY, Beverley!

      Dearest Manatita,

      Aww – I am touched by your loving masterpiece! Thank you for this marvellous dedication. Tell me something – how do you smuggle these lofty words? And, you weave these words with so much Love and care. he he. Truly, you get these from ether. I feel blessed. I feel relaxed. I feel rejuvenated. Here’s a snippet to pay my utmost admiration:

      The Lotus is clothed with silky petals;

      Inside, rests a supernal tunnel,

      Where a noble Soul caresses

      The growing seed with

      Endearment and contemplation;

      The fire has kindled deep in the Heart

      And the Gardner peacefully wishes

      The floating Lotus leaf

      To tread on the path –

      The path to enlightenment!

      May Lord Shiva continue to perform Tandav with joy and zeal, and, may we always feel Him dancing in our Heart. Your poems are unparalleled and immaculate as usual. May Brahma always bestow blessings on you, and may Goddess Shakti always ignite that tiny flame, yep always.

      Beautiful picture of Mother Mary. I like all the pictures. So sweet :)

      Lovely poem! Very eloquent! Very high-spirited! Oh – I love it! Hari Om Tat Sat.

      P.S. Yes, I did meditate to Sri Chinmoy’s music. Thank you for sharing this heavenly music, my dear. So soothing! What a joy to ears and Soul! I thank everyone for their visit here.
