In The Realms Of Gold
At the risk of sounding like a fortune-cookie, life is a voyage of discovery (grasshopper). But it seems that so many of the happiest discoveries are serendipitous–the result of felicity, luck or happenstance. You go looking for China and you find America. A conversation about Krazy Kat leads you to Lyonel Feininger. I found my wife while looking for a kebab shop (and walking into a lampost– don’t ask).
Let’s have poems on unexpected discoveries, happy or otherwise.
