November 25: Bequest

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.

  1. Whether due to a benevolent God, lady luck or good karma, there is much for which to give thanks.
