Epiphany


The first crystal drop of realization shatters your glassy surface and radiates the idea outward in reflective ripples growing in pristine concentric circles with the newness of being thought of for the very first time.. one drop follows another in a thoughtful cascade and a thrilling commingling of contemplative resonance skimfully intersects on a liquescent wavelength - ..like a collection of Chinese linking rings smoothly passing through each other.. exchanging enchantment and casting their own brand of magic in lucid fluidity across the suffused surface of your soulful depths; that in this most precious of moments revels in revealing the answers you seek. Susan Ashley July 28, 2018

Meditative and well-penned. Did you mean to deploy 'REALISATION' in its fullest material and spiritual senses? shalom, shalom & thanks Susan

Dear Anil, I believe 'realization' happens in the cellular, cognitive and spiritual realms of our being - provided we are open to accessing this awareness through cultivation of deep connections to our inner self and God. Our soul (as a conduit of divinity) does possess the gift of wisdom if we have Faith and Trust to look within.. Thank you so much for your much appreciated return visit, your question is beautiful.. Warmest wishes always my friend.. ~Susan

Your poems are always so mightily done, they are not really poems, but Susanmasterpieces, and I think they deserve their type. This one beautifully flows down the page in a slow, methodically haunting way. I am going to run look up skimfully right now. I truly had never heard that one. It's like you are teaching me vocabulary too.

What a lovely thought and well-written to boot. I remember going through a stage, in which I found myself amazed at understanding many things that I had learned by repetition - rote took on reality and knowledge became wisdom.
