“Transfigured Living”

“Transfigured Living”

Date: February 27, 2022

by Marcia Mount Shoop
Luke 9:28-43a

from Transfiguration: A Proclamation Poem

“Transfigured lives
Cannot begrudge
Forgoing heartbreak for
Architecture that soothes
Joy may be fleeting
Hearts beating and
Meeting ourselves
Coming and seeking

There is no such thing
As belovedness
Without hearts broken and bleeding
No luminescent visage
Without the frothing
The shrieking

Your torment
Is no deviation
Or deviance
But it is honest
to God
True, you transfigured as new”
