its a moment of clarity

seeing the synchronicity

where want need and chance

come through to be noticed

sometimes you have these moments

after you cross the great Pacific

and trek through deep jungles

and climb those mountains

after all that trekking is done

the realization may then illuminate

when you are watching 

a clip on youtube at the end of the day

its true its easy to

write off an epiphany 

birthed from the modern world

through modern technology

and so you might say to yourself

something like

“I did all that I did, 

just to watch an internet clip?”

though in the past, 

grumpy old men like me 

mocked inspiration birthed

from books and movies
