Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 119

Publish date:

As I started writing this post, I realized that today's prompt number (119) is the same as today's date (1/19). How funny is that! Because of that realization, I'm going to change today's prompt.

For today's prompt, write a serendipity poem. I'll let you decide what a serendipity poem might be. If you're unsure, here's the Webster's definition of serendipity: n. the faculty or phenomenon of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for. I'm sure we'll all find some serendipitous poems with this post.

Here's my attempt:

"Serendipity 3"

We don't always know our destinations
even if we think we do
when we start our journeys separately.
Give me your hand for
my heart beating across your blue eyes
that kiss me every time
I see you search for me in a bookstore.
Even after ever after
you're the only one I want to find me
when I return home.
