Primitive religion is not believed, it is danced!

Arthur Darby Nock

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
And only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.

Who shows up?

isn't it funny
who shows up

at the feet of Jesus
washing his feet with sweet perfume
drinking deeply from the cup
of divine love

at a tomb
early one morning
seeking again
that love
being greeting by all newness
all life
Not the earnest ones
not the strivers
not the men
the disciples
the insiders
but the woman
one without standing or rank

who is she?
why is she the one?

perhaps her great virtue
is that she was not
a strive
and insider

but simply one 
who loved
and was willing to accept love
at the feet
of love personfied
