I once worked with a fellow
who could "always" find a four-leaf clover.
Every now and then this would come up in conversation, and
inevitably, someone would say, "No you can't."
Then he would go outside and stroll around for a while,
head bent, smiling,
like a person thinking pleasant private thoughts.

And come back in with a perfect little four-leaf clover.

It amazed me,
since I have never - not once - found a four-leaf clover.

But after one of our recent rainstorms,
I found this:


Rather surprising!
I thought you might like to see it, too.
