On the fifth day of the A-to-Z Challenge, I thought for hours about what to write for ‘E’. Then I had a chat with a nice friend and at last I got an idea. 🙂  Of course, I had to submit my first assignment for the 10 Premodern Poems by Women course at Stanford University today. So, I managed to submit that first before I posted my write-up for ‘E’. You can see the listing of all free online public courses at Stanford University here.

Today’s write-up is not an article, but a poem. I love writing poems in all manner of styles, but today’s poem is in free verse. Hope you like it. 😉

E for Epiphany


To find beauty in every object
And every living thing
Such is the wonder of life worth living
To see the silver lining on every grey cloud
The beauty of a tropical storm
To see past the illusions of grandeur
To delight in the morning dew and rising sun
Such is a life worth living
