Haiku Heights April Challenge, day 21 "serendipity"

Day 21 of the Haiku Heights April Challenge is on. The prompt for today is serendipity I didn't know this word or it's meaning. So I had to search for the meaning and maybe some synonyms for it. I ran into the following meaning 'accidental discovery', (in dutch we say per ongeluk, toevallig) I found also a few synonyms for serendipity. E.g. blessing, good luck and good fortune. Well I now know the meaning of serendipity and i will try to write a few haiku with it.
