A Pictured Perfect Piece

A Pictured Perfect Piece

written by: Cindy Georgakas


Puzzle pieces
like mosaic art.
Some fit,
some don’t.

A game of chess,
Your eyes engage,
staring at the edges,


connecting in quandary
what others
might have missed.
But not you!

Eyes forlorn,
as tears of joy
taint the color
on the board.

on the inside,
on the outside,
each closely knit,
but still a misfit.

When slowly,
the colors of abandonment,
create feelings of adornment.
One by one,
the image
comes into vision,
taking shape
like the painted sky,
reflecting each prism
of illusion.

We click and capture
to symbolize
a perfect union,
if only in
a pictured puzzle,

where pieces fit
are pulled apart;
tucked neatly
back in a box….
the next time.
