NaPoWriMo Day 19

Today's quote: "Poetry is nearer to vital truth than history." ~Plato, Ion

Today's prompt: Explore the lightbulb or shock moment

Today's poem:

Lightbulb Moment

Cartoon characters show their ideas
With a ping of a lightbulb
Floating magically above their head,
And all their problems are solved,
With a happy ever after.

In contrast, I think of the other
Lightbulb moment, when the light goes out.
Plunged into darkness, you see only
What's right in front of you.
As you adjust and focus,
And suddenly it's clear.
Not happily ever after
But happily moving forward.
