Recently, I re-imagined them as if they were poems Jesus might have written when he was in his twenties and an unknown carpenter, falling deeper and deeper into his own awareness of the spirit. There is a kind of expression in these poems that resembles the way Rumi spoke of what he called The Beloved. I am not a practicing Christian, but I don’t believe I am saying anything here that could be called untoward or inappropriate for such a man, as Jesus might have been, before he began his ministry.
