Manatita is an esteemed author living in London, UK. He writes spiritual books, flash fiction and esoteric poetry, his favourite genre.

celestial river with Sri Krishna and the Gopis


I seem to have offered you wine,

Made your head spin, and got you drunk.

Yet I came with a celestial river.

I seem to have offered you shadows,

Woven cobwebs on your raiment;

Yet I came with the golden rays of the sun.

I seem to have hurt your delicate heart.

But I came to kiss your sweet feet;

Spread the fragrance of jasmines on your Spirit.

Somewhere between my heaven and your expectations,

A Light went dim.

Do forgive me, this unconscious intrusion.

A Light went dim


The Robin and purity of the rose


The path of a robin void of clouds, lacks Freedom;

As such the Light of the Mother beckons it home.

Please take this rose, as a symbol of remembrance.

Someday, at an appointed time upon the wind,

I will return waltzing and whistling with olive branches,

Carrying the supernal flame, of another Lantern.

      Thanks a lot Marlene. This one is written with an outstretched arm, carrying an olive branch, particularly to someone I befriended and who let me down.

      I am extending a heart of forgiveness; acknowledging that I will go away and return reflecting more Light. Of course to me more Light is synonymous with God. I am a mere instrument of His.

      Always a joy to hear from you. I have not written here on Hub Pages since this poem of forgiveness, but I am paying you the courtesy of responding to your kind and loving sentiment.

      This is quite beautiful and if I caught the meaning, also quite powerful - the thought of God shining a light to lead our way to Him.

      Pretty powerful words here, Manatita. Sometimes our intentions go wayward or are misconstrued. But in the end, truth leads to understanding and culminates in peace.
