Puzzling

Puzzling

A Poem by Lorna Lee
"

Life...the meaning of, our goals, our destiny? The big picture...personified, from one point of view. Enough said.

"

 

Puzzling

 

Birth, the picture has just begun
a few pieces to start, although sometimes, just one

 

A mother, a father if fate will allow
you start your life’s puzzle, without knowing how

 

You gather your pieces, hoping each one will fit
but sometimes you force them, you push and you twist

 

Til one day it hits you, that piece isn’t yours
so you toss it aside, making room for one more

 

A brother, a sister a love and a pet
each finding their place, you aren’t done with it yet

 

That daughter that son and that friend you adore
will fit in your puzzle, even that boss you abhor

 

And when your life’s through if the pictures complete
you soul will cross over, to its final destiny

 

But in the event that your missing a scene
Then your soul will be wandering somewhere in between

Your puzzle pieces together make up such an interesting poem. This is very unique, especially this part...

"And when your life's through if the pictures complete
you soul will cross over, to its final destiny
But in the event that your missing a scene
Then your soul will be wandering somewhere in between"

...This is very deep. It's so important to treasure the pieces we have and make the most of life! You really have me thinking and enjoying your clever poem!

You're onto a great image with this piece (pardon the pun). It is exactly that missing puzzle piece, for which most of us seek our entire lives. Sometimes we search so hard that it almost seems as though it is purposely evading our grasp. It is only after we cease active pursuit that the piece "magically" appears, and fits perfectly into our puzzles.
Puzzling is obviously well-thought, and you should be very proud of this work.

sis, I'm glad to see this poem became a reality for you....I know you had it churning around in your thoughts for a while now. It's an excellent metaphor for life.

P.S. I'm pleased to see that you listed "sister" before "pet" ha ha

I liked the journey that you gave us here. Sometimes it's hard to see the full picture while we walk in the moment, but you have captured the saga nicely!
Great Work Lorna!

I really loved this piece. For some reason it got me thinking of Shel Silverstein's The Missing Piece. Great write!
