Welcome unexpected blessings,

Always.

Welcome

The robin song echoing from a twig,

The smile of a cute face down the street,

The nurturing scent of fresh soil,

The smooth fragrance of olive oil.

Welcome

The acrobatic seagull in the wind,

A blotch of sunlight above grey clouds,

Dead leaves dancing in a whirlwind,

The morning sky that mistily clouds.

Welcome

A heron gazing the pond like a king,

The crow flying on its black magic wing.

But not all of them look like a blessing,

Some are disguised and unleash hurting.

Things in life don’t happen to you,

They happen for you.

Welcome unexpected blessings,

Always.
