The Transfiguration of Jesus


On a mountain

Surrounded by light

We are alone no more


Talking together

Of exodus times

Elijah and Moses speak truth


Enveloped in clouds

Dense with emotion

We watch in fear and dread



Covering our sight

Quieting the world

Filled with awe and wonder


Into that silence

A still small voice

Speaking truth to our hearts


"This is my son

The beloved

Listen to him" it says



We look around

Alone once more

Jesus requests our silence


As we descend

Our hearts are full

Yet we fear what is to come


That still small voice

A whisper from God

A comfort in times ahead



This poem and the paintings are inspired by "The Transfiguration" as described in the Bible Mark 9:2-9
