ser·en·dip·i·ty (sĕrˌən-dĭpˈĭ-tē)



a woman seated in a bench. smiles. the wind plays with her hair. curious. shes looks absent. the clouds shadow by her side. inquisitives. she doesn't notice. the summer sun straightens its rays through the trees. eager. she's astray. the birds sing softly. waiting. the woman simply shines. smiles. absent. abstracted. missing. gently, she lifts her hand to her lips. she touches her skin. and the smile enlightens. the memory of a kiss.

Ana, you are not going to believe this! The bench photo is my photo...one I took when I first started photography. :0)

Hi Ana, lovely written interpretation of serendipity. Really like your poetic style. And in combination with Vicki's photo, it's just perfect. Looking forward to your next creations.

Ana, I love your poem! And I am the only one seeing the irony here--I think the fact that you used Vicki's poem without even knowing it is the EMBODIMENT of serendipity!! lol. Super cool.

Ana Eugenio said...
