THE PUZZLE

Rest in Piece

Building Castles on the Ground






















The pieces of the puzzle lay scattered
Destined to fit
Intended to be complete
But only partly fitted right
Like life...

The puzzle though,
Didn't allow forced fits
Why then does life?

'Why then does life?'
Ah, now that is quite a puzzle...

But then, perhaps the 'forced fits' are 'only partly fitted right' - will they hold...

i guess since we dont have the finished picture as frame of reference - we try and plug around the pieces till they find their place.

is there a finished picture that we need to replicate though...or does the picture evolve as we go along...a question i ask myself often.

i had read your blog - intense depths a long time ago. glad to have found your new blog.

Let me try re-writing your pices of puzzle and the puzzle of life:

The pieces of the puzzle are left scattered
by those who want them to fit,
by those who want them to mean,

They conform to a pattern,
unlike life,which makes out a pattern,
the pieces are destined to fit
the life destined to make.

Sadia....I thought of migrating from a masked blooger to an unmasked one(philosophically irrelevant). You may hit me @ http://ashimdutta.blogspot.com

tatavarty: that's the way i try to go about it mostly :)

Footsie: welcome to the world of unmasked masks. I visited your blog but it doesn't let me comment as I am not a team member :(
