“Give me a word and I will write a poem starting with that word…”

“Give me a word and I will write a poem starting with that word…”

The author of the A Passers By blog says, “Give me a word and I will write a poem starting with that word.”  So I did! My favorite word – and idea – is serendipity.

A poem was created in a very rapid turnaround, and it surprised me! As I said in the comments:

Thank you so much – you made me smile, and laugh out loud, and a little uncomfortable, too. It takes a good poem to do that!”

I had expected a certain kind of poem, and got quite another, reminding me of the value of collaboration and improvisation – when a person builds on an idea from another, the result is almost always unexpected.

Find the poem here: Serendipity.
