Serendipity - Poem by Walterrean Salley

Struggling with a verse,
Trying to set a rhyme.
But couldn’t make it work
For the lack of certain chime.

So I decided to rest,
Turning off the light.
Then sudden 'harmony'—
Much to my delight.

And with a pleasant sigh,
I turned the light back on—
Starting where I’d left off
To complete the poem.
