Four flights to cross the country, none delayed
Except for one that minimized my wait-
The pros and cons, meticulously weighed
Stayed equal, as if part of an estate
That left behind good fortune during travel.
It seems a luxury, yet in this case,
One snag would make the complex trip unravel;
Thus serendipity I did embrace.
When needy, I was given company.
When sorrowed, I had ample space to cry.
When weary, I found rest and reverie.
Now grateful, I accept, not asking why.
Though windfalls pessimists surely unnerve,
I know not to desire what I deserve.
One thought on “November 25: Bequest”
Whether due to a benevolent God, lady luck or good karma, there is much for which to give thanks.
