This is a collection of verses I have written over the years comparing life to making a jigsaw puzzle. Beverley Joy
Puzzling Pieces of Life – Podcast
Sometimes the pieces of life’s puzzle
Form unexpected solutions
That surprise & puzzle even the best of us.
Sometimes we try to force the pieces
To fit together for a quick solution
Impatient to complete our life puzzle.
One good thing about being ‘mature aged’
Is that, as the years roll on there are fewer
Pieces left to fit in their place.
Let’s hope the remaining pieces
Are not dog eared or missing.

Sometimes we shuffle the puzzling pieces of our life about
And connect them together for a quick solution.
Sometimes that method works.
Sometimes we need to sit down,
Layout all the pieces in front of us,
Grab a cuppa, and patiently work our way
Through the sections of life’s picture.
When it gets too hard, or boring,
We can call a friend or two to come and join us
To help us piece together a solution.
Either way life’s puzzling moments are worth solving.
