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.

      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.

      No, my Sweet.

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

      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.

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