Poem: “Transfiguration”


They came upon You
And really saw you for once!
Your full radiance unmasked

Like a late afternoon sun
Glaring through a windshield.
Your light dazzled and confounded them

The apostles fell to the ground
You filled the deep craters of their hearts
Saturating their emptiness

There on that mountain
In the full face of Love
The world seemed only a dream

And they promised You
All that they were and
All that they would ever be.
