Pieced together

We shake them up and grab one and then another

randomly fitting them into what we believe

will make a total image

and turn them this way and that

upside down, wherever we think they belong

to make the box empty

as these thoughts fit into each other

piece by piece we create a harmony

through the rhythm of movement

one here and then one there

although we generally know what the end result will be

we often grasp and try to fit

that which won’t be made to fit

and so we keep trying

edge against edge coming together

these random thoughts that make a view

perhaps picking at it when we find time

or staying the course until done

and we sit back to survey

the finished beauty

content with our creation,

and sometimes just so happy

to be finally done.

Then we take it apart bit by bit

shelving it away to perhaps someday

revisit the project

or to give to another so that they may find peace

in the quiet fitting together

of random pieces

to create their own scenes.
