Imagining the Lectionary: Transfiguring Vision (Sunday before Lent B - Transfiguration Sunday)

Reflection accompanying image “Ethereal willow tree in winter mist”

On a bitterly cold afternoon freezing mist is vying with the fading winter sunshine for mastery of the snowy landscape. Bathed in syrupy golden light the delicate tracery-like branches of a willow appear to be lit from within. The colour of the light and that of the willow's delicate structure appear to be made and meant for each other. It is as though the whole tree seems transfigured in this moment of ethereal revelation, the sunshine calling forth a singularly vibrant celebration of the tree's being in defiance of the ever thickening shroud of mist.
