If Realize
were a perfume
it would be subtle
some might say dull
as though you could
enter or leave a room
and no one would
notice

but oh what fun
its sister scent
The Aha Moment
is having
all bursts of light
and sparkling
conception
you see her there
surrounded
by titillated
admirers

Can we even glimpse
that other cousin
Epiphany?
all distant incense
and seizures
of other-worldly
Knowingness
quickly bored, recently
departed

Such comets leave
exhausting effluvium
and make one think
no, perhaps Realize
is good
sensible
analytical
even if rather
dull

Then comes Wonder
to whisper in your ear
she leaves you breathless
with her strange perfume
no poor relation, this–
you follow her,
completely alive
unknowing but
now knowing
(Revelation)
