A Lyrical Rhapsody in my Soul

She came with the celestials,

Speaking in tongues, like moonlight,

Telling a thousand ballads to Her Lover,

Shedding tears in the joyful silence of the stars.

She came with the radiant dawn,

With a glistening shine like flowers,

Heightening their immaculate grandeur,

To the delight of glorious spring.

She came with the morning sunrise,

Singing like birds -- a thousand nightingales

Wooing my core with music -- Love weeping

Joyfully, in a Heart of serenity and sweetness.

Finally, She came with the dance of wisdom, spilling the ink

Of Knowledge as she twirled -- a lyrical rhapsody in my Soul.

Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 14th January, 2020


A Soul Gone Mad With the Bliss of Birthless Time

I wish I could soar, like birds,

Wings flapping in the azure,

Enjoying the fullness of Freedom.

I wish I was grand, like Everest:

Poised, majestic … chanting her sacred songs

In silence, with the humility of a thousand suns.

I wish I could dance, like Plisetskaya:

Graceful, ethereal … pulling on the rhythms of goddesses,

Until my soul sings and the starlings weep, with reverence.

I wish I could live, like Eternity,

My breath the fragrance of flowers,

My soul gone mad with the Bliss of birthless time.

Aye, my Heart will be an effulgent fire,

Prancing … rejoicing, in the core of ceaseless Love.

Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 14th January, 2020.

    Sri Chinmoy shares much wisdom. What he wrote about smiles increasing the beauty of the universe is so true. It takes little effort, but has great effect. I enjoyed your poetry, as usual.

    Fantastic Manatita. You are a master of words, I am most appreciative that it was dedicated to me. Once again thank you so much.

    Sure. Then go ahead. There are over a thousand free books! Wings of Light and Jewel of Happiness are popular ones.

    Since you like Astrology, you may like Astrology, the Supernatural and the Beyond. Ours is the devotional way, like Ramakrishna, but he has answered question on death as well as Kundalini.

    See Death and Reincarnation and Kundalini, the Mother Power. Thank you for coming.

    Thanks Linda, as always, no? Just as I like them. Thank you.

    Mary, haha. You mean you did not know? Even prophets don't. They use their godly vibrations to influence us through loving service, like I'm trying to do here … to point you inward, to take you upwards, with me, as I soar, to infinity's blue sky.

    You seem fine though, so you can take me up with you, right? Much Love.
