Jigsaw Puzzle Reimagined

Glimpses of me

In the mist

Shift like a

Kaleidoscope

Before I

Retreat briefly

Into shadow

 

My constant motion

Never allowing

Panoramic images

To be revealed

You see only

Disconnected

Disjointed

Fragments

Each its own truth

But lacking

Cohesion

 

As if someone

Packed pieces of

Multiple jigsaw puzzle

Versions of me

Into a single box

Shaking violently

Thoughtlessly

Callously

Tossing

Contents high into the air

To fall where they might

Leaving me to

Glean the new patterns

A soothsayer reading

The bones

 

Who am I now

Calm, nurturing earth mother

Teasing big sister

Boon companion and friend

Dark dangerous woman

Singing her siren song

Deepest soul mate

Vulnerable woman-child

With the trembling, bleeding heart

Huddled in the corner

Afraid to move in any direction?

 

Am I all of the above

Or none of these?

Self-perceptions

Unreliable

Lacking insight

Am I looking for

Wholeness

Validation

In the eye of a

Beholder?

 

I crawl on the

Hard tile floor

Sift through

Wreckage

Begin to reassemble the

Puzzle that is me

No box cover artwork

To refer to

Afraid of what

Might emerge
