The Spiritual Surfer: A Sonnet.

Updated on August 30, 2015

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




Waves rolling upwards, I’m surfing on their crest,

Snowflakes descend in greeting at my Love’s behest.

Soaring towards Heaven, my pangs now left below,

No more turbulence of waves, pure cosmic waters flow.

The firmament sings sweetly, sends out a shooting star,

To guide and welcome me, a guest, coming from afar.

My Heart-Door opens gladly, bathed by His sweetest Love,

I surf on flakes of Gratitude, floating High above.

I glide into the sweetness, the glory of His might,

From yon Palace portals come, a thrill and wondrous sight.

Surfing, rising, roaring; soaring, on wings of purest Bliss,

I dance with immortality, that birthless, deathless kiss.

The melody of Flautists, bid me welcome to the Light;

I drink in joyful gratitude, the Mother of Delight.

      Your expression always moves us! The beauty flows line by line. If we were still voting, up, awesome, and beautiful would certainly fit the bill my friend.

      My muse seems to be on vacation, Manatita. For the past few months I've been concentrating my efforts on finding a job outside the home. Freelance writing didn't turn out to be profitable for me. I grew weary of writing in other peoples' voices, for their audience. It kinda burned me out.

      I've now found a job (start tomorrow), which is a huge relief on my stress level. Now my muse is free to come back. We'll write in my voice for MY audience when the time is right.

      Thank you for asking, my friend.

      Bill, I'm really happy I wrote this one on a Monday, as I know you like to be inspired when you start your day. I should have a most inspirational one up in about 1 hr.

      My continuous thanks and appreciation to you for your loving support. Love to Bev and family.
