Transfoguration

         While he was still speaking,
         suddenly a bright cloud overshadowed them.

                  â€”Matthew 17.5         
 
When the bright cloud
fogs our knowing
we begin to come to wisdom.

When the light blinds us
to all but wonder
we begin to come toward the truth.

When our understanding fails
we embrace the light of things
differently.

When we know we don’t know
and yet it is there
all we can do is pay attention.

Enclosed in mystery,
we are opened
to everything.

Clearing,
as brilliant Presence
dense with light
descends to ground level,
dispersing the clouds
of our condensed knowledge,
and precipitates as hope and joy.
Expect unsettled weather to follow.
