Summer Day


A day of surprises…
a wrong turn yielded
a chance encounter with new friends
who were dancing in the park
on this fine summer day…
a walk down to the river
hot sand and cool stones
laughing and splashing
a sunburn to show for it.
Our new friends offered
food and kindness;
we accepted.
More laughter and hugs good-bye.
As we drove back home
I mused about
what true wealth really is.

  1. Ah, dreamy! I sometimes wonder about the “wrong turns” and “chance encounters” I’ve experienced. Was the turn wrong? Was the encounter by chance?
    And, more often I wonder, how can I cultivate more of those experiences?
    Thank you.

    • Thank you Vincent for stopping by–so nice to hear from you. And yes, was the turn wrong? I love the idea that there are no mistakes in this wonderful crazy life…that everything happens from some reason. ❤ ❤ ❤
