solving the puzzle

by Luminita Suse

here I am
waiving the one way ticket
through a constellation city
my feet drum
a diminuendo on frosted alleys
my eyes snowblind
and restless
but the snow must go on
so much left to see
this world is a colossal puzzle
where everything is moving
and metamorphosing
and I came upon a few pieces
scattered on the surface
of a spinning grain
as if the first nanoseconds
of this universe were spent
on dashing the truth to pieces
so I would later restore
beauty and purpose
grateful that my sorrows
are details of a larger heart
and my life lasts
to uncover only fragments
of the whole picture
