Icon of Transfiguration

Illuminated by eternity’s light
The fullness of the one that the universe could not contain
Revealed in radiant glory one time only
Not hidden away

A cup, tipped up and poured out
Divinity running away like water into dusty ground
Now lifted in this moment out of the shadows of the world
Blazing brilliant energy
True nature impossible to hide for long
Teach me, teacher
Centre me, central one
Irradiate me, brilliant sun

I am thrown down
Reeling, drunken and dazed
I know who you are
I’m overwhelmed by your beauty
I fear to leave my familiar tracks and trails

I look around me and everything has changed
The mountain flows, granite bends and lifts you up
The grunge of daily living bleached and infused with scorching energy
My heroes raised with you
They see you who was horizon far away, now handshake close
It was you all along they strove to see with a longing as deep as life
Yet they were yours all along, hidden in the dark hand, whispered to

Beacon of brilliant light, lasting a day, minute, hour or moment
Never seen, then seen, then gone
To be seen again, in this moment
And endless day to come
No more night

Transfiguration – James

Two streets down from heaven
twenty metres from the treetops
raised up, topping the trees
the son sends a piercing beam

Straight like an arrow
lanceting my head
bursting the hidden putrid mess
cleansing, washing, healing
crowning my head with the glow of unearthly vigor

Radiating down to my hands and feet
That touch the earth, my head turned away
not ready to look into the eyes of mercy
that say come home, to me, to the divine energy
of the Three-in-One

Inspired by Lorica – One

On my feet, steely eyed
moved by piston power
titanic ice slammed together with unyielding granite
back from the dead energies released
the three, the one, the mystery, the dance
that is the force that surges up my spine

The never flinching gaze
seeing through blackest rot and filth and pain
never missing
never overlooking
a glimmer of redemption, fading light caught in hope

The ever loving gaze
x-raying my marrow and tendons and flesh
delighting in me
joyful always
hoping bright sunshine of kept promises await

No gps signal
no map on a napkin
no flicking compass needle
lost and found with the one
my face kisses the ground
my heart bursts with longing
ecstatic utterances on my tongue
fulfilment of my dreams with such peace
alone with the one and one and one
giddy from the weaving dance

This is the skin I put on
the body I inhabit
to walk in the world that constantly echoes his active spirit
emboldened by thunder
brilliant in with a million headlights glare
pure as honey
switched onto his network forever flowing within the threefold turbulent waters

Explosive one detonate in me
