Have you ever walked into a bookstore, opened any book to any page, read a few random lines and felt a “wham” moment. I did many years ago.

This is what I read:

“The most creative act you will ever undertake is the act of creating oneself.”

“You have to look behind the curtain of memory to begin to discover the true fabric of reality.

“We live as ripples of energy in the vast ocean of energy.”

It’s as if the book had chosen me. At the time, I was seeking some words of wisdom to light my way.


Chasing a butterfly

Losing my way

                                                        Choices made

Wishes left undone


Story tumbles into darkness

Struggling for a glimpse of light


Words reach out from a book

Holding out pages of insight


Creative spirit flutters

Witnessing soul’s garden

    Some blessed person left this book at my house once upon a time. His words still echo in my mind. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Forgot to say that I love the poem too. Have chased a few “butterflies” into darkness. Words can be such inspiration at these times.

  4. Gorgeous. I love the tie between the random book page that spoke to you and the poem. ❤

    Yes, I know exactly what you mean about words hitting you. Or you turn on the radio and the words of a song hit you. Wonderful poem.
