Serendipity


a chance encounter--
new beginning, roses and silk
serendipity

~ ~ ~

Serendipity is one of my favorite words. It's all about happy surprises, lovely coincidences, or unexpected turn of events that brighten the day. It can be as simple as the scent of a white rose, or life changing as a new beginning. In my haiku, I describe serendipity as a new chance in life and I illustrate it with a photo of my wedding picture frame on my dresser. I placed a white rose on the dresser so that its image is reflected in the mirror of the picture frame. The folds of my silk wedding dress are like the folds of the white rose petals. A reflection within a reflection--serendipity! As you can tell, I'm quite the romantic type, and in fact, Serendipity is one of my favorite movies, too!

I'm linking my haiku to Haiku Heights at http://haiku-heights.blogspot.com/ where today's prompt word is "serendipity." I'm linking my photo to Pixel Dust Photo Art at http://www.pixeldustphotoart.com/ where today's prompt is "new life." Also, I'm linking my photo to Floral Friday Fotos at http://floralfridayfoto.blogspot.com/ where flowers are showcased each week. Please visit these sites for beautiful poetry, art, and photos.

Enjoy my photo and haiku, and may there be serendipity in your day!

  9. I'm liking your romantic side :) Although being romantic can make our own lives often more difficult in today's world, I still wouldn't know how to live without being in touch with my emotions and without being at least a bit romantic :)
