Puzzle Pieces

Priscila Rodriguez 1964 (Guayama)

Pieces of my life scattered; similar to a collection of clips of a movie that began many tears, many years, many fears ago.  A series of events, catalysts to change some good, some bad.
Pieces of small and big proportions that fit somewhere, nowhere, or elsewhere. Interchangeable pieces with memories not knowing where they belong,  and some just laying there waiting to be connected to another.
Pieces of a dream of a  life once worth living.  Pieces of the many struggles, and disappointments none of which anyone claims.
Pieces that are missing;  lost by others who played, but failed to put them back together. Pieces of a child, a person looking for that missing part that would complete the perfect picture.
Pieces of happiness, accomplishments, recognized talent and importance. Pieces of faith, endurance and tenacity complimented by a colorful pattern of loss, despair and adversity.  
Pieces one of many missing parts of a whole picture; missing crucial pieces of the puzzle that leave much to the imagination. Pieces that if matched can tell the real story.
