Jigsaws Of The World

by Ben Pickard   Jul 28, 2016


A little jigsaw gave me pause

Which normally would never draw

My eyes but this one held my glare

For there were no more pieces spare

-

How could the world be conjured thus -

Complete and with the smallest fuss -

By children and their child's hands,

With love and thriving, vibrant lands?

-

Each piece is placed with care and glee

from those who do seek desperately

to see the final picture gleam;

from innocence, we see our dreams

-
I will attempt to make this right

And build my dreams from dregs tonight

We must sit down and face the rain -

Build jigsaws of our world again.

    Personally some of the rhythm here feels too forced, there's just a sense of disconnect between some of the ideas and what is actually said. However, I made sure to preface this with personally, because that could merely come from my connotations and interpretations.

    I enjoy how you made this write personal and yet still so open to interpretations. The unique perspective you show here really adds a nice dimension and a clear voice that defines you as a writer (at least in my eyes) and I love pieces that are so great at capturing that.

    Anyway, awesome write. Very interestingly penned.
