‘Out beyond Christianity
Magdalene and Jesus are dancing
in a garden where things grow wild,
where things grow into what they are.
Many paths lead here, not one,
and the gates are always open.
Over each gate there’s a sign:
Mary thinks Jesus is the gardener,
and he is.
They drink the wine that turns
temples into bodies again.
She reaches out to take his hand:
he lets her.
There are three rules here:
Yearn, Risk Everything, Connect.’
Thanks to Vera de Chalambert on Facebook for showing us this wonderful poem.
Here’s a book link (not clear if this poem is in this book or not, as the writer has not yet managed to procure a copy):-
Wishing you and all of us and our world blessings this Easter.
