And then…

And then, she saw it. Life's chunks and choices were not to be added step-by-step in a single line of linear progress.

Rather, it was not a path but a jigsaw puzzle tapestry.

Here, a color gathered in a corner.

There, texture and lines in another bit.

Then, hues of red and mottled watercolor (was it a sunrise?) in the center.

And outside the frame of a life, fragments waited on-deck.

To be laid in when her attention gave them focus.

Enough focus to be added to the picture.

Until the time was up.
