The Light of the Rose, by Manatita

"The Light of the rose speaks,

Like a mother's sacrifice, whispering

Of concern, redolence, beauty; grandeur

A self-evolving fortitude, charm and a Heart of Silence."- Manatita

You, my Beloved

You’re a kaleidoscope of emotions, showing

Me a snow-white Heart one day; the camellias

Of spring on another. Summer heralds Your

Lustrous smile, even as You cascade Your beauty,

In the magenta leaves of autumnal splendour.


Seeking out Your healing rays, I ascend my current

Struggles, within the mists of another lofty mountain.

I was once lied to by others, telling me that You

Never stay with Lovers. Now that we are with each

Other again, it seems impossible, that You’ll ever leave.


I wish to see Thy sweet face, this golden aura of

Shimmering Light, where ever I turn my gaze.

Gliding among the zephyrs, You transport my

Spirit, into a ceaseless paragon of endless Joy.


I once drove through Hades on the wings of desire,

The sweet ephemeral allure of mundane distractions,

Plunged me into the blade of stark loneliness. Now I

Grasp at Your lustre with burnt fingers, praying

Your balm, will diminish my pain.


My intense emotions are like leaches, in the way they

Cling to You; wherever You think of soaring to – like the

Phoenix –most devotedly I will follow. I seek to etch Your

Kisses, on the agony of my yearning, with Thy flute-like

Tones of soothing waves, splashing across my shoreline.


Look! The gates of Jannah are flung wide open;

Love’s cadence calls and enthralls me. No more

Rainbows, sunsets and horizons. I’m adorned in

Perennial raiment; summon the stars to golden banquets.


My soul, like a fish, now frees itself, from this

Fisherman’s net of sorrows. I leap joyfully, like

A whale, on this vast Ocean of the great Unknown.


- Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 16th March, 2021

The Gaze of Light by Manatita

The gaze of Light transfix me.

I'm intoxicated, like one drunk with wine,

The vintage for which only Jannah (Paradise) can account.

My breath pleads in the vastness,

Asking my Queen to grant Her children Peace,"- Lantern Carrier

I have also just noticed that I gave you the wrong initial in your surname. I try so hard not too! So my error today or yesterday, is worse than yours! yet you remained graceful.

Actually, I prefer Linda to Alicia. But it prevents me mixing you up. (In my young age)

Thank you so much, my Friend. Gratitude

Aww Alicia.

Wish I had the money! Would send you a new one. Ha-ha.

Anyway, I wasn't worried. Still, I appreciate the heart-felt effort that you made. It's touching. Peace.

Sorry about that, Manatita. I was working on a small and old iPad with a very cracked screen and accidentally hit the “Submit” button before I finished the comment. I tried to send you an email to explain and found that I couldn’t do that properly on my iPad, either!
