My horoscope said “lessons in luck
Are coming your way.” How lucky can you get.
“But you have to love the paradox of luck”, it said.
Good luck with that. I don’t even believe in luck
Or horoscopes for that matter, I just read them and laugh.
Besides, I was waiting for my poetry muse to appear
When I clicked on this icon and voila she appeared.
I had already written the first four lines of this poem
To maybe be, so was that lucky or was it just waiting
For me to pick it?
I would say “lucky, shmucky” but now I’m thinking
Maybe I could look at this as a possible first lesson in luck.
Just before, I had glanced at a picture of nine of my ten
Grandchildren, four I’m not even related to but dearly
Love them all. What a gift this is, Are and Aren’t mixed
Together in a special blend of paradox.
Good grief, what have I done? Did I just say I love
The paradox of luck? How many more lessons are there?
Does this mean I have to believe my horoscopes too?
Wow, is this lucky or unlucky?
