Happy Soul's Day, Dee!!

Dora Isaac Weithers, aka MS Dora, has been a Friend of mine for many years, and probably the first here on Hub Pages. I was attracted by her work on purity, her wholesome and inspirational Hubs on morality and virtues; on the Divine and finally the educational pieces on Alzheimer’s, to aid others as well as her mother’s cause.

Dora has supported me with my work, and has most kindly and generously, offered her time and services, to assist me in my journey of creative writing.

On this her very own and most special birthday, I wish to offer my Love, Gratitude, and support, not only for her writings, but her ennobling efforts and diligent care, in taking on lovingly, the daunting task, of looking after her mom. Dora we love your Souls luminous Light, as well as adoring your kind and benevolent Spirit. Alleluia! Glory Be! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

Your Love Burns, in The Ecstatic Cavern of my Soul

It burns … that sweet effulgent flame that scorch my Being;

Sends it on fire with a celestial Delight.

The Light rises from within this fiery frame,

Its golden rays cascading a paragon of Bliss,

In the ecstatic grandeur of my Soul.

Stay! Thou solace of the Spirit!

On long weary nights, I toss and turn,

My intricate thoughts a cobweb of dark shadows.

But like a lighted candle, Hope has now filled my Spirit,

As I dance on a cloud of rainbows and exalted dreams.

Light, more Light, Sweet Gratitude!

Minstrels and Seraphims sing Your praises,

Your Love dancing joyfully in my Essence,

As the moonbeams glow, in the majestic sanctum of the Heart.

O Mother of all Auspiciousness, Come! A Sonnet.

O Mother of all auspiciousness, Come!

You who command the light winds;

Give glory to the firmament, hear me!

Ignite the pulsating engine of the Heart,

To replenish this shattered vessel of Your Temple,

Pouring within the elixir of Thy golden inner child.

Let the Light burst forth in a dauntless and dazzling lustre,

Permeating my core with the milk of sweetness,

And the healing energy from the Soul.

May this fragile Love blossom,

Spreading its vastness, like an eagle,

Flying on the Wings of Infinity;

Giving shelter to the shooting stars,

And rejoicing in the promise, of tomorrow’s golden sunbeams.

~ Awakening The Inner Light ~

“Each birthday is a new awakening. Each birthday is a new hope. Each birthday is a new promise. Each birthday is a new fulfilment….

Each birthday is a tune, a melody of the universal music. Each individual is also a melody of the universal music. The seeker grows and grows in his music, which he can hear with his soulful ears. The very presence of the soul-child inside us is what grants us a taste of the universal music…

Each birthday is a petal of a flower. The flower, petal by petal, blossoms and then it is ready to be placed at the inner shrine in the aspiring heart…

At every moment, God, the Author of all good, celebrates the seeker’s birthday.”_ Sri Chinmoy.

Mother's Love

      You're quick! I went to see my sister 2 years or so ago. She has Cancer. I wanted to see Nellieanna but never managed it. I was so sorry. My Sister wanted me and although we went to Austin, Nellieanna was still far away and the driver just took my sister to many places including the Congress building. It was great.

      So my Dear, Yes, I'll hold on to this lovely invitation for next time. Much Love.

      Thank you, my Sweet. In Life we touch each other in different ways. All part of the plan. Sometimes it's seemingly dreary, and again, it can also be magnificent; immaculate! It's been a joy to know you. HAPPY SOUL'S DAY!!

      Truly, a precious birthday gift, Manatita. You are one of the greatest poets I am privileged to know. My birthday is happier, as is my presence on HubPages because of your kindness and your love. Thank you, sincerely.
