The poetic city: “Lucky Us”

Lucky Us

On my walk today
I spotted a gorgeous flower 
blooming in obscurity. 
It was so beautiful 
that it carried me 
out of the doldrums
into a state of wonder.
I am not sure the flower
would have been noticed 
at all had I not come upon it 
at the right moment.
Yet, it felt like things 
happened as they did 
because they were supposed 
to happen as they did.
Lucky me, lucky flower…
