Pandemic Puzzle

April 2020

Everything broken
              like a jigsaw puzzle

with no box,
               no beautiful picture

of what the world will look like
              this is finished

Not even a promise of a finish

no guarantee that all
              the pieces
                             are there

We live these days suspended

the dump of the puzzle pieces
             was sudden

Some days I struggle
to force the pieces together
              to get to the end
but my heart knows
to let go of the old way
              of thinking

Appreciate the pieces of today
trust that a new vision
is taking shape
just beyond our view
