serendipity

fork in the road
of humble options,
path less tread
looks serendipitous
to me.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
serendipity
is not found
in backward glances
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
of all the wide world
through view of your lens i see
serendipity
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
one single impression

What a happy moment. I like the idea of somehow sharing the view.

One never knows where the roads will lead us, which makes the journey all the more delightful!

These three all relate to each other nicely. I wouldn't disagree with the statement in second one as poetry, but in my own life, I did once find serendipity there!

A great series, and one I live by.
I love that second poem.

It is all a matter of how you look.

Loved them, but the middle one was easily the best.

I love that line, 'serendipity is not found in backward glances'. Beautiful!

How nice to find serendipity through someone else's view!

The first one of these really fascinated me. There are many paths to serendipity and we won't find it by following a well-worn route.

Hi Ms. di Bello, I am doing some thinking about your poetry. The theme of looking for serendipity was not in my way of thinking until I read your poems.

For me, things just happen and I accept them. Nothing I ever looked for or tried to force really turned out to be very good.

Hello!
I loved all three of these as well.
My take on the middle one is that in looking back we don't see the serendipity that is always with us, but rather 'the road smooths out behind us'? Is that a piece of what you were meaning?
Thanks for these!

I love the first one. And the second. And the third. Great serendipities!

Serendipity indeed! It is often found on the road less traveled but it is sometimes found on a crowded highway also. You have summed it up well. Thank you for visiting my blog.

The second appeals to me most. Thanks for the read.

These are all really meaningful and insightful but that second one made me think hard. Thank you.

These all feel so positive. Glad to read the mood Deb. I cannot say the same for mine.

These are all so wonderful. That second poem really stays with me.
