Happy Accident

I woke this morning with a word.
Demanding my attention.
A word that is not often heard.
A flash of inspiration.
The word was serendipity
I was not certain what it meant.
So I researched it thoroughly.
It seems to mean apparently
Good fortune found by accident
Totally unexpectedly.
An isolated incident.
It's best to accept gratefully
Whatever fortune sends your way
Today might be your lucky day.
