Mary Magdalene … Noli me tangere …

I am blind to everything but the blurred threads

of your garment ..

I kneel;

I bow my head;

I incline my soul.

I feel your sorrow;

I weep;

I shudder;

Mea culpa; mea culpa;

mea maxima culpa.

I am deaf to everything but your eternal pulse.

I understand nothing of this world

but the spirit of love

You breathe …

You wait, Lord,

beyond the tomb,

beyond the pain,

beyond the fear,

to hear the footsteps of the fallen

follow, penitent, in yours …

    “I am deaf to everything but your eternal pulse” is a wonderful place to just “be.” Welcome to Gethsemene. Beautiful. I am grateful just reading your poem.

    How beautifully you write, Marya. In spite of being an adherent of a different faith I have really enjoyed the beauty of this poem.
