You Have Filled my Longing With Matchless Love. A Sonnet to Twin Sisters Mara and Tara (Monkeyshine75)
Happy Easter to All My Friends!!
I walk on Your turf gently, with a sacred swing and Mother Earth swallows my shadows. My woes have been cushioned by Your blanket of Light, and I drift sweetly, in Your Stillness-Peace.
Beloved, for You my breath dances with vibrancy, and the inner music resonates, with the kernel of my unspoken word. I now bathe in Your serenity. Ah! How I long for even the last dog to be filled with reverential fire!
I now float and flow in a river of magnitude so sweetly vast, that the stream from my eyes has become ceaseless. I weep with joy; shed tears for all those yearning to be free.
Only yesterday, I was lost in a quagmire of delusions, but now my joy knows no parallel, and the freedom of the Soul is boundless. I have reached out to You, with a ceaseless and perennial need, and You have filled my longing, with peerless Love.
You Have Filled my Longing, With Matchless Love.
I was once like one lost in the middle of turmoil,
With emotions surreal in the middle of emptiness.
My spirit travelled restlessly in torment,
And the dark nights of winter, carried my pain .
But now for You my heart moves; the Soul relishes Delight.
Though my field of vision is filled with elegant pastures,
Yet it is only You I see, a Garland in my Heart.
Beloved, Your allure is too vast!
Like a young firefly, dreaming of supernal beauty,
I am caught in its effulgence,
And I weave my way drunkenly, in this tapestry of Light.
You have filled my longing, with matchless Love;
I now wish to dwell, at the sacred portals of Your Abode, forever.

Awakening the inner Light
Love for God and God in all
Does your God-Love extend to others?
