In wanderings in cosmic fields
I came upon an Earth
A serendipitous moment 
A promise of great mirth

In planetary lokas
A place that seemed like heaven
A place where Gods dreamed to walk
In that group of seven

How blessed am I to be here
Such beauty wild and rare
Upon the Earth I'll come again
To show some love and care


Lokas - Planetary systems in Vedic cosmology, The belief is that there are 14 lokas 7 upper and 7 lower. Earth resides within the Bhu-loka mandala which is the 7th of the 7 upper planetary systems where the first is highest and 7th is lowest.

My word for 2015 is Serendipity.

And the year has already begun Serendipitously as a featured poet on Poet's United - Thank you Sherry. And as a guest blogger on Carol Graham's blog Battered Hope that also has a poem inspired by my journey on the bus. Thank you Carol.

The word came to me as I walked around my garden on New Year's day and found these pretty pink flowers that are supposed to bloom in Spring and not Summer.
