Serendipity




Written by klr


Seagulls sail the air
blissful the voice of the surf
toes play merrily

A driftwood setee
my own cottage by the sea
memories come back to me

I tarry lightly
happenstance without worry
sweet kiss of the sun

Orange and burgundy sunsets
hearts hum with the warm firelight
wind fans my face

Salt air sets me free
color the beach white linen
Ser-en-dip-i-ty


This was the first exercise of the new e-course I am taking on creativity. Instructions were to write, design, use photos or other media to describe the meaning of the word serendipity. My idea came to me quickly, the thoughts and words came later the same day, but it took much longer to get this blog up and going. I'm not a perfectionist, but am not satisfied if I just throw something together. The form of poetry is the haiku: 3 lines with syllables of 5, 7, 5., so I put several together! There are other haiku's with different rhythms and rules.
Thank you, Vicki, for the challenge. It was fun!
