Today’s poetry prompt: write a serendipity poem. Serendipity–noun 1. an aptitude for making desirable discoveries by accident. 2. good fortune; luck: the serendipity of getting the first job she applied for.
I don’t believe in luck
No good luck charms hang from my neck
or rearview mirror
Coincidences are filed with unicorns and Santa
in my mind
Yes, I do believe in those
But of the “I accidentally hung up on you” variety
Fortuitous accidents, maybe they exist
What I do know is that my serendipity comes in the form
He who orchestrates happy blessings
Surprises and delights along life’s journey
I don’t need good luck when I already have
a good God.
