The Unexpected

The Unexpected
A Chance.PNG

The best things arrive
when least expected
from messengers
void of messages and notoriety —
an occasional unplanned day
frees the inner senses
to feel
without instruction from society.

which we imagine
is never
that which we grasp and hold,
but touched by chance
that which is unexpected
is more wonderful than uncaught dreams
laced in silver and gold.

In the end
when the sweet vapors
of the unexpected
dissipate and disappear,
thoughts of society
are once again apparent,
but so are thoughts of messengers
far away but very near.

does one find such a moment
is a question
asked by more than a few —
the answer lies
not within a search,
for when the time is right
the unexpected will find you.
