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.

Advent - Mary

If you want the Virgin will come walking down the street
with Light and
                                St John of the Cross


Ah Sacred One
who lives and moves
in us
and around us

Ah Sacred One whose ways
are mystery

do not allow us
in our limited minds
to reason away the mystery

to take what is wild and free
and life giving
to take the powerful wind of the spirit
and reduce it
to nothing more
that words
and platitudes
and rule
and dogma

all the sacred mystery to be
and bloom
as unexpectedly and certain

as the child in Mary’s womb
