August 6, The Transfiguration

The Transfiguaration by Raphael


Go Figure

They figured
they were taking a walk
up a mountain
with friends
not expecting Him
to be transfigured.
They had to
reconfigure their plans.
St Peter knew "it is good that we are are here."
Only later when He was
disfigured
at the cross
and then refigured in resurection
could St. Peter say he was
"an eyewitness of His majesty. For He received honor
and glory from God the Father."(1)

Poem based on the gospel of St. Matthew 17:1-9
(1) 2 Peter 1:16-19
