CCCLXXXIII - What Comes By Chance


Three Word Wednesday asks us to write a piece using three nominated words. 
This week they are 'entice', 'chance' and 'savour'.
I chose to do a rondeau.  Again.

What comes by chance

What comes by chance should not displace
But add to what is first in place.
Our life cannot be ‘either-or’,
Nor should we be keeping score,
But enticing the new onto our shore
To savour and to soft encase
And, with an absence of disgrace,
Be willing to oft explore
What comes by chance.

There is an element of grace
In taking the new into our space,
In being willing to ignore
The risks of opening up some more
And with a joyous heart embrace
What comes by chance.

    1. But an interesting and necessary theme to explore, and you write about it so beautifully

  2. The joy of what comes by chance is that you can incorporate it if it seems helpful, or set it aside if it does not. But first you have to explore what comes by chance.

  3. I love chance and spontaneity!

  4. Anything that comes by chance should be welcomed :-)

  11. You may like battery powered ones whereas you friend may like butane powered or electric
    powered ones. The main advantage of this vaporizer is its small
    size, which makes it possible for people to inhale the vapor of dried herbs whenever and wherever they want.

    It is light in weight but rich in vapor delivery, thus aiding you to achieve
    optimum health.

    are well suitable for you to get huge benefits. Since the herb is used in inducing abortions,

    Most residents of Oakland, California recognize the benefits their city would reap from legalizing marijuana to tax
