Puzzle

by Talia Devora about a month ago in surreal poetry

A fictional poem inspired by the song “Puzzle” by Tobu. The poem is about a young girl who lost her father and preserves his memory by creating a stained glass flower vase to keep beside the picture of her father.

Song found on www.youtube.com

Stained glass pieces,

pointy as triangles

and sharp as pencils.

I build

the mosaic cylinder vase

and keep it

in the living chamber.

To reconstruct,

to divert myself,

and to paint a ceramic

with tessellation pieces.

Flashing crimson red,

soft bright aqua blue,

sun shining yellow,

minty cool emerald green,

sweet bubblegum pink,

and peaceful violet purple.

A goblet now a statue;

it perches

like a trophy on my nightstand

and faces

the man in the onyx robe.

A painted tombstone,

no letters or numbers.

Just a memory of my papa:

a wizard who lived with me.
