To Dine With Delight at the Feet of Love

A Sonnet

Butterflies flap their lustred wings and dance,

Over the dew-filled blossoms of the rose.

Beams unfurl their magical canopies,

Shooting star-lights, to the Soul steeped in Joy.


I carve one more notch on the rung of time,

March forward with a dauntless fortitude.

The strong, ever-transcending call of Faith,

Guides me through the gorges of disbelief.


The sweet breath of the eternal beckons;

I flow - like the waves – to find my way HOME.

O matchless Light, You who dispel darkness,

Erase these doubts and shine on my abyss,

Covering my path with Your effulgence,

To dine with Delight at the feet of Love.

      Bring on the light! Bring on the warmth! Bring on spring! That's all I could think of when I read the opening lines. I need spring to arrive!!!!!

      So sorry, Bill. It's here in London with decent sunshine today also. I gave Shauna the spring poem, so read it again for some vibes. (smile) Thank you so much!

      Yes, my Sweet. They aren't always 'business friendly', but they give me joy. Thank you so much!

      Dearest Manatita - This is a lovely, light-filled sonnet, highlighted by your “. . .Shooting star-lights, to the Soul steeped in Joy. . . .” !

      There is a whisper of spring in the air here, which is a bit cool, but sun-filled.

      And it’s my 7h Hubbiversary. Seven good years!

      So great to see you! Are you sure about that thing. Could be done as celebratory. Thank you so much!

      Smiling. If by 'that thing' you mean the 7th Hub anniversary, yes, I'm sure. Here's what Hubpages emailed me:

      "Hi Nellieanna, You have hit a pretty impressive milestone—your 7 Year Anniversary on HubPages! 7 is a lucky number, so here's hoping this year is the year you create your most successful Hub yet. Happy Hubbiversary!"

      I guess they leave the celebrating up to me. So -- Whoopee! I made it another year! :D

      Hugs.

      No, my Sweet.

      I'm hardly likely to call it 'that thing.' My Felicitations on this great and auspicious occasion.

      You really out done yourself on this poem. It is so beautiful and touched my heart. Be blessed!

      Body Levive, Hi. I thank you.

      I have so many exquisite and beautiful poems! My most popular is A Song For My Beloved. Have a look. Yet it is - according to me - not my best. My 400th Hub is probably close to it, and yet it is a poetic prose piece on Love, rather than a poem, called The Old Man Speaks on Love And Suffering.

      I truly thank you for offering such a sweet sentiment to my piece, and will most certainly visit you later on. Loving thoughts.
