The Transfiguration of our Lord Mark 9:2-9

 In the Joy filled intensity of our excitement

We look up

And catch a glimpse of

-----something unseen


beyond the realm of all we know

--and feel

----and hear

beyond the encounter of those special moments in life

when every part of our existence

------is focused

on the here and now

and for a brief moment

----all is just right

beyond even the pureness of joy

that comes in the perfection of religious expression

--amid the rising voices

----and the spine tingling timelessness


came this almost moment in time

rising from the mist

--of exhausted ecstasy

----on a high mountain top



--from the world

----seething in hunger and pain

--longing to see that to which they have turned

----a blind eye


--in this almost place and time

comes the light


that can burn through even the blindness

----of not looking

--or looking too hard

with our eyes focused on that unseen moment

that we almost notice

here at this time

the Son of God leads us down


-----------the world around us

to see the glory of God

in the poor and lost around us

to see the pureness of unbounded timelessness

in the moment of love expressed

to one who knows not love

to see

--by not trying to see that faint glimmer

--------------------------------------------off high

--------------------------------------in the distant mist

--(Listen to Him!)


--in those around us
