If you're lucky, you'll find it's meaning in here somewhere

There's a word for that...

 

When one arrives at their destination

having not known its location

upon stepping out the door

There's a word for that

but it escapes me now

 

When two people meet

locking gazes across a crowded room

for the first time

of the million times in a life spent together

There's a word for that too...

 

When two amino acids met

eons ago

and found that they could also

create a life together

That word also applies

 

Or, if you prefer...

when God said

"Let there be light!"

and brought us from the soil

The word holds true here just the same

 

When you find your car keys

before you even knew you lost them

When you run in to an old friend

thousands of miles from home

It's that word...

 

It holds beauty

and complexity

and grace

and powerful meaning

like few other words can

 

Perhaps if I'm lucky

or possibly by fluke

I'll catch a break

and stumble upon

this blessing of a word

 

But I cannot grasp it now

maybe I'm trying too hard

I guess I'll just let go

and hope fortune

sends it my way

 

I'll

Just

Rely

Upon

Serendipity

I think you've got it! Well penned and much enjoyed.

It's a wonderful word–well used in this poem. I once interviewed for a consulting firm aptly named, Serendipity Associates. They were looking to design the console or the Boeing SST passenger plane that never happened. I took a week off to go to my cousin's wedding in Manhattan, and the like serendipity, the job evaporated.

Very refreshing piece of writing, laced with curiosity and invite. My favorite is the two people seeing 'for the first time....of the million times in a life spent together.' That is superb! ~~ Diana

A fine piece of work, Michael! "There's a word for that."

A gentle lesson on the mystery of fortune - I like it.
