One Epiphany is All it Takes

One Epiphany is All it Takes
One Epiphany is All it Takes

What awakens a sleeping mind
in epiphany’s grace,
transforms every cell and state,
to imbibe the new, the uplifting view
proposed in providence,
and truths so elusive in past,
suddenly holds water,
reveal the farce of old thinking,
invigorating the hunger for clarity,
light and the ridding of indignity,
suffered at the hands
of ignorance.

Often truth in its unique timber,
can override all past,
as it limbers up our elastic minds,
re-evaluates our paradigms
and all that we once held
in high esteem, dreams won and lost,
now nourished by the new,
the straw that broke,
renewed all life to assume nothing,
acquire everything anew,
and redeem that once child-like
thirst for knowledge.

All this from one single epiphany,
the purging of our symphony of the heart,
somehow contained within,
locked away and pinned too brittle
for a risky manifestation,
a soul upon the sleeve
to be berated for all the fears carried,
worried and afraid to be believed,
as we find honesty within,
and the courage to be open
to our truths, our reality
in the light of new epiphanies.

Change can come in a second,
a change so vastly felt,
the world emerges for the first time,
and recognize we don’t
the lies we told ourselves
before that one true moment,
when the light switched on
and now we can’t ignore the privilege,
the pure fact and deliverance of a soul,
to open doors always closed,
in pursuing our dreams,
with a soul in clarity.

    You are so right, Tony. One epiphany, “that one true moment”, will make a tremendous change in life. Beautiful work.

      Thanks, Tony. I have settled into a comfortable routine here in my new abode. I miss the little mountain and all the critters, but, nature has compensated by giving me a lovely view of tree tops and the wide open sky with amazing clouds (some look like space ships, because of the high winds we get). With my bedroom on the second floor I can keep my windows open and gaze at the moon and stars at night. I love it.
