Jigsaw long poem

Photo by Moyan_Brenn

Children laughing when at play, bright sun rising to greet the day
Sweet cream added in my morning coffee, horses munching hay
A rusty nut that just breaks free, an ancient majestic noble tree
Wind at my back true point of sail, unfair bondage a man set free
Singing songs and righting wrong, breathing life’s true ambitions
Loving each and every one you meet, without preconceived conditions
Finding an old photograph, with your people long since passed away
Newborn child’s first breath of life, loudly cries its entrance in this way
Friends share a moment of memory past, and dream upon the future
Angling trout in high mountain streams, being one entranced by nature
Seeing smiles by those surprised, by simple gifts of joy enduring love
A perfectly thrown pitch a strike, a well-oiled and fitting baseball glove
Family gathered at the table for a well cooked meal, just a pinch of salt
In a church with fellowship for our loving Lord we communally all exalt
Toe tapping songs and music that brings the urge to loudly sing along
Watching as your son grows tall, gains wisdom, learns right from wrong
Apple pie Ice cream atop, picking tomatoes ripened on homegrown vine
Winter evening for man and wife share a crackling fire and carafe of wine
As the sun sets westward colors range from gold to shades of purple dark
Family all gathered in the car going to the fair, finding a perfect place to park
So, so many things in life for each and all, so different in their success
But for me the aforementioned, are key parts, my jigsaw puzzle of happiness

"Let every word tell; Make every word count!" Those words were spoken by Ed Fike, editor of editorial page of the San Diego union newspaper in 1981, when I took his night school journalism course at San Diego City College. Mr. Fike had a profound influence on the way I approach writing. I believe he had a profound influence on everyone he met. Anyway, I did not pursue a career in journalism, but instead became a tradesman, earning my living with my hands. Writing is my hobby and pastime.

So many submissions on all the things that make a heart sing with happiness but this one stands head and shoulders above the rest. The rhythm and cadence of the verse make it so lyrical that it could almost be sung! The simple things that make up what we think is a complex goal to achieve, enumerated and woven together so intricately, it makes one want to actually stop midway and count one’s blessings. An inspiring poem !



Jigsaw short poem

We are all made of, Millions of tiny jigsaw pieces… Of experience and memories, Which each piece releases..! Bit by bit & Inch by inch… Once it is together, It won’t even flinch…!! Time may come, When we fall out
