Serendipity found me

On this cold, lacklustre dawn

Her gracious hand reached out

And she wrapped me 

In good fortune


What  a gift she gave!

She followed me so joyously

As she sang her unexpected tune

Such that sent the clouds adrift 

And made the flowers bloom



She pushed away the night’s long slumber

She usurped the fading moon

Her arrival breathed

New air into my tired

And broken soul


She covered me in sunshine

She wiped away my tears

She kept my spirit buoyed

With hope, and unanticipated



Serendipity smiled on me

As she waved away the old

Follow me, she whispered

There’s a new day

Just for you.

The tenderness and fragility of hope. A true poem Clare.

Wonderful poem, Clare

"She pushed away the night's long slumber
She usurped the fading moon... "

Perfection 😎

I love the concept of serendipity.

It's often portrayed as "I'VE found something", yet here, it's "SHE has found me".

I love your last verse.💐
