Serendipity

The world was at peace
And I myself was at peace
So I sat for a moment
And wondered
How long it would all last
Seemingly almost perfect
I had never experienced such blissful contentment before.
I could get used to the silence like this,
What a rare thought for me to have.
But who could resist?
From the warm breeze kissing my skin to 
The tickle of fresh grass. 
I was alone once again
But I couldn't help smiling.
Stars peeked through the canvas putting on a show. 
Oh how I wished that I'd never have to return to reality.
A firefly landed on the sidewalk next to me, and every now and then he'd light up like a flashlight.
I've never enjoyed being small, but as I stand below looking up at the night sky I decide it's not so bad. 
My worries seemed far from here
I'm not sure why 
But Standing on that square of cement was oddly calming to me.  
I realized I was going to be just fine.
There's a name
For moments that are as rich as this,
I think it's called Serendipity.

For moments that are as rich as this

When we see into the heart of things.

Keith- I am glad my poem had the ability to fill you with optimism...or as you put it "Joy".

Kate & Neressa- Thank you for your kind words! That means a lot.

Tom- I am picking up the guitar again after a few years. Due to my lack of focus and patience I only managed to learn one song, this time I am putting in more effort. I have attempted putting a tune to my poems but no such luck. Thanks for reading.

Jordyn,

What an excellent poem. Having only read it once it has filled me with optimism, even joy dare I say.
Well done
