Epiphanies don’t happen as often as you might think. Epiphanies are moments of clarity when the stars are aligned and something you have been think about and wanting an answer to comes into perfect clarity. It is truly an ah ha moment and in Poetry, especially reading some of the older pieces, it can mean you’ve been reading a poem over and over and haven’t quite been getting the meaning, then, out of the clear blue, you do understand the moment, and when you do, its as if a lightbulb has gone off in your head, because it is truly an ah ha moment.
The word epiphany comes in at number 16 out of the 32 most beautiful words in the English Language, and that is partly because of its definition and partly because of the way it sounds when you say it.

Epiphanies don’t happen that often, so when they do, it is special.

The biggest Epiphanies are of the smallest things but I think of them as aha moments as well and refer to them as that. I have had this kind of feeling AFTER a situation in my life that I did not understand, played out and I struggled over and over to understand why it had happened to me at that particular time and space and the answer simply put has hit me like a brick wall falling down and being able to see on the other side the answer with clear clarity and a ringing truth. When you have an epiphany, never take them for granted because it may be a while before another one happens in your life.
