Transfigured

 

Clouds possess a radiance – sun swept –

fragmentary – life departs – open sky –

my mother rang – another friend had died –

memories – at their summer house –

sonatas – Beethoven – daughter thought – strange –

Boxing Day – their family gathered – fresh –

a funeral now – blue – the wind – structures

on a mountain side – housing us –

exodus – a glory parts – humanity

alone – a ceiling – open to the rain –

stars – a residence – the limitless

in time – limited – a face transfigured –

two feasts – Pesach – Sukkot – evidenced

in this – the fullness of the moon.
