Epiphany - that wonderful AHA! flash/bang/boom point in the continuum when you suddenly 'get it' - that perfect moment of revelation and insight, of clarity and understanding. It’s that split second lightning bolt when all the mystical symbols of the universe work in united precision to open your eyes and your mind.
Now if only it would happen when one actually needed it to happen, and not in some interval after the fact.
But I digress...
Today's posts are about epiphanies. With epigraphs. Why? Because first, I'm in an epically good mood. Second, because Writer's Island decided that that particular word should be their prompt of the week (which obviously inspired my first poem) and finally, because I subsequently realized (another epiphany?) that the theme worked kinda nicely for the Haiku Challenge of Sis/Few Miles, too.
