Serendipity

Serendipity

When two things
or people,
who were never meant
to meet
come together
collide.

With a sense
of wonder and a feeling
that there is just a bit
of magic
in the making
of that moment.

Tiny electric shock
races to brain
plugs itself in
and results
in quiet flood
of purest pleasure.

Elizabeth Crawford 4/27/2018

Notes: Image is a photograph of a rainbow reflected in water, put through the kaleidoscope app. And the above explanation is why I continue to play with them. And also why I write. Watching the words come together and make sense gives me that same moment of pleasure. I also think that is what Joseph Campbell meant when he said that we must seek and find our bliss, or never know a real sense of completion. Carl Jung defined it as synchronicity and said it was when two or more disconnected things came together, bringing about a deeper sense of awareness and understanding.
