It is my great pleasure to share with you a poem penned by one of our Magdalene sisters: Carol Klavon. Carol is an initiate in the Magdalene Priestess Training and writing has been revealed as one of her gifts and part of her Divine calling. Please enjoy her contribution below.
Dark clouds roll in,
Cold rain splatters across my windshield.
Heads bowed as if in prayer,…
In truth, a lame attempt at shielding against this bitter nor’ easter.
The news out of D.C. no better.
There’s a pervasive helplessness
Of my fellow countrymen,
As images of ANOTHER mass shooting
Flitter across the glowing screen.
In the midst of despair, there are peaceful warriors.
Sons and Daughters of Magdalene.
They step over, around, and yes,
Even doggie paddle, straight through the rivers of despair.
They are the young (and young at heart).
Mystics, dreamers, fools – call them what you may.
Lilies of the Valley and the Shepherds in the Hills….sons of Yeshua, daughters of Magdala.
They arm themselves, not with swords, but with jars of alabaster and the Word made flesh.
They come in peace, but bearing the double-edged sword….Truth on one side, Love on the other.
There is a secret I will tell you now…you are among them. You carry their Light nestled deep in your hearts.
There is no need to let them in, for they have already taken up residence. Don’t you understand? You are the lambs AND the wolves.
Carol Klavon in her own words: 43 year old Gnostic Magdalene Priestess. I enjoy reading/writing, mostly short fiction and poetry (mostly spiritual themes. I make a daily effort to remember my spiritual roots.
My goal is to live and work on the California Central Coastline, with at least 1 cat and one dog, a collection of books that rivals the Greek Library of Alexandria, and a parcel of land big enough to grow a community garden.
