That Ah-Ha! Moment


For Writers Island Prompt: Epiphany

That Ah-Ha! Moment

Something flows in,
a picture, words, memory.
Collides, mingles and blends
with whatever is contained
therein. Fireworks inside
the head, breathed out
in gushing sigh as eyes
widen with understanding,
that swims through blood,
like bouncing bubbles
of featherweight awareness.

Can sometimes be witnessed
from across a crowded room.

    The last is quite unexpected and makes me smile.

    • Irene, as a teacher, there was never a more satisfying sight. Thanks for stopping,

  4. This is terrific. My favorite part is,
    “Fireworks inside
    the head, breathed out
    in gushing sigh as eyes
    widen with understanding”
    Love it!

    • Very glad you enjoyed it, Gloria. It’s was fun to do, especially with that particular image.
