Magdalene

Poem By Varghese J Kuttikat

When Jesus forgave Magdalene
The miracle happened; Magdalene forgave herself
And at once she was set free from the chaos of love
Multi-directed excess, striking notes discordant,
Celebrating flesh as the sole goddess to be celebrated
She poured forth perfume upon Jesus’ feet blest,
Wiped them reverentially with her hair most lovely
With single-minded devotion, recognizing Him as her sole Lord and Master
Yes, her love assumed direction, acquired the unique glow radiant
Melody concentrated in a single focus streamed forth
Love-lit, and all hideousness slid down forthwith
No wonder, in the Resurrected Morning the Lord greeted her first

The Damned Kiss

‘'Is it with a kiss that you betray me? ''
The piercing agony of getting betrayed
Gets further sharpened by the mode:
By a kiss, a human gesture of love profound

Agony And Ecstasy

When rain drops down in cadences soft
It soothes the troubled waters of the mind
And strengthens Man to forestall the stormiest torrent
That's a miracle Nature performs recurrent

Confession

The glitter of Crown sometimes glitters with a glow false
Kingdoms sometimes rise up on shattered bodies of the righteous
I wonder how saints can enjoy bliss, despite wailing agonized from pits bottomless
Brand me a sinner for these blasphemous, unwarranted wanderings

The Anguished Cry

Deepen my sight inward, O all-seeing Eye!
Will I die of fright,
Is it why thou shrouds my view out of thy compassion infinite?
Soothing sights are there no longer for me

Unfulfilled

That the meek shall inherit the Earth
Remains until now an unfulfilled prophecy
In a world where innocent blood surfeits
Will innocence or meekness ever be crowned?

The Province Of Babes

Your innocence may trap you, O, my baby
Yet innocence fills the air
With irresistible sweetness seductive
Which even saints might envy
