      Thanks for posting Chitrangada's poem John!

      Very creative poems Chitrangada! Seems one may say there is luck from the observer's perspective and then there is that from the lucky person's perspective. Your poetry paints a clear picture which is truth. Well done!

      After 50 years of loving my work, because a person can not master life unless they love what they do.  The part luck comes in, is in the chaos of genes or situations challenges, where love and work glues it together again gracefully. Another view of success in life, in  order first by passion, attitude, focus and least important talent. Talent or luck, can be natural or required. Without the work and love again it doesn't  evolve well.
      Talent and luck are over rated. Being an over achiever brings it down to common, is to say I've been lucky.  If they say I'm very talented a gift from God. It could be from my father, a black sheep in the family too, and so is my daughter a black sheep of  uncommon sense, all masters in what they do. Chaos is far greater environment than order on the other hand.

          There is no one reality, only perspective. Different individuals truth  perspectives can come in common sense, like a collective God agreed upon.
          Or good sense like love or spiritual chaos.

          Or uncommon sense of an unique artist like  out of the box or new way of thinking
          I'm giving an artist perspective and experiences from three generations of uncommon sense.  From three successful artist, a body of work and love of  our family empowerment. My daughter and , I best international artworks is by accident, mistakes from the subconscious of chaos. And artworks that turns out spiritual or at very rare times, scared art work.
          Conclusion, whatever works with love with any.individual. With a little degree of luck and grace.

    Chitrangada...
    I love the quote on the photo:
    "Hard work puts you, where the good luck can find you."

    In your poem, "Good Luck or Hard Work: Poem" you show us how you stay home to focus on your work.  You put your best foot forward and achieve success, but people belittle it by saying you are just "Lucky."
    When in reality, luck had nothing to do with it.  It was all hard work.

    Your poem, "Luck isn’t Chance: Poem" tells us Luck doesn't happen by chance.

    It takes hard work & sleepless nights.

    Not getting what we wish for is a stroke of Luck not bad luck.

    Nothing happens by sheer chance.
    It's through our own hard work toward goals that makes us succeed.

    When you are in a helpless situation, and lack hope, God gives us Grace. He points us in the right direction for success.

    Others say we're lucky, but it's through the grace of God we succeeded.

    Great writing for the word prompt.

    I'll post a link in the word prompt article.

    Thank you, Chitrangada, for telling us in poetic form that "luck" is not always what it's cut out to be. Most of the time it takes hard work and God's grace to succeed. Great poetry. Thanks, John, for sharing.
