As Frank J. Tassone shares at DVerse for today’s haibun Monday, today is the anniversary of the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. It also happens to be the Feast of the Transfiguration in the Catholic Church.
In an island nation in the Pacific, a city is transfigured in a flash of light — complete destruction in an instant.
On a mountain in the Middle East, Jesus is transfigured in a flash of light — our hope of glory and eternl life.
Oh God, transfigure hearts — that we may find and bring peace.
Change may come slowly:
Tiny blossoms’ aroma,
While snowfall lingers
