Feast Day of Mary Magdalene

The eyes of Mary Magdalene by bear 48 on

Traditionally, the feast day of Mary Magdalene
is celebrated by reading poetry in the Bridal Mysticism tradition.

She, who is the Beloved of the Loved One.
She who is the Lover, the Beloved and the Union.

Ode to the Beloved

Your love snakes like a fiery river

undulating through my soul

Setting alight the liquid desire within

igniting the passion for the Real

White-hot flames

Tempers the metal
Forges the steel
Honing my soul

Your love flows like a river of ecstasy

Melted ice seeps into my bones

Pooling love into the deserted plains

of my forsaken heart

Your love roars like heavenly winds

Screeching through my throat,
Howling with unearthly delight,
Sweeping me through the darkness,
Into the tunnel of light

With the touch of your fiery eyes,

the pure-white fire of your mind
with the gentlest whisper
the kindest word
With the lightest touch
of your beautiful hand
You melt the iron bars
that trap my soul

Your love breaks my cage

conquers the dragons of fear
Your love sets me free
Only to return
to the Eternal Spring

The Swan Princess
She glides gracefully on the mirror of water
Content to bask in the beauty of her own reflection
Arching her neck proudly
Arrogantly the crown glints in the light of the sun
One unto herself
She needs no-one
The waters stir
Passions churn
Old rotten leaves mulched into mud
Flies up, black everywhere
Water churns, splashes,
Intense waves form
In the white foam He appears
Wearing the moon on his crown
He surrounds her
Make her His
His embrace splits her being, pierces her heart
Radiant light snakes through their bodies
Conjoining them into One
Feathers splayed, wings spread
Stretching to the ends of the Sky
Necks arched
A halo of light as two crowns meet
Graceful heads bowed
Love fulfilled
