When it comes your way,
It’s the best approach to enjoy the ride.
Catch the wave of destiny and
Notice how it buoys you benevolently
Lifting you beyond your strength of will
And cavalier control.
If luck is yours
And feeling emboldened you may try to circle back,
To see if it is still there within your grasp,
This may be so, sometimes…
But as likely as not, it is not.
Remember these times, such fortunate passages
Like the pages of an old photo album,
Which may bring a dear smile or two…
And then remember also that
Wisdom wishes us
To say thank you,
And then to let it be.
