grappling with fate
nothing thrills me more,
not fortune, nor happenstance…
rouses my soul to believe
in kismet, in providence
that bind us intrinsically
you know…pure magic
For Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday Poetry Challenge inspired by these words and their synonyms:
Destiny: fortune, serendipity, happenstance, kismet, fate
Challenge: rouse, thrill, grapple.

A Cleave Poem for Jane Dougherty’s Poetry Challenge “Message in a Bottle” with the prompt words: ethereal, placid, meander, forget, silver.
A cleave poem is three poems in one. To read it, start with the first “column” (in plain text) from top to bottom, then read the second (in bold italics), and finally read each line all the way across. In this Cleave poem there are two stories to tell, worlds apart until the message in a bottle connects them. It is serendipitous! 🙂
I found your message do you think of me?
as I meandered along the placid sea I know you are there
under the silver moon somewhere in the ethereal mist
I have sensed your presence forever so I wrote my heart
visiting my dreams, azure strokes of ink on parchment
your kisses on the cool breeze trusting destiny’s providence
waves caressing my feet to deliver this message
as the sun sets past the horizon on some distant shore
where you wait…and now I wait.

Those who play it safe
don’t believe in destiny
sometimes *stuff* happens! 🙂
