Imperfect Jigsaw

Like a kaleidoscope, the images flashed through my eyes.

Where memory plucked a piece of time to cherish,

From past travels and adventures and journeys.

An autumn leaf, a blooming cherry blossom and a fresh snowflake,

Shaded with hues left behind by a piece of myself.


Slowly chipped away to nothing as I meandered far and wide,

But shaped back whole by the memory capsules I carried back home.

Fixed with mementos, an imperfect solved jigsaw was I.

Ever resolving. Ever evolving.

Ever travelling.

I stumbled upon this cool challenge “Writespiration” hosted by Sacha Black where the prompt was Kaleidoscope which made me ponder over the numerous trips and journeys and how they change us – and often, shape us.

  1. Aw, I could kind of make out what inspired this. Great thoughts, here. Quite relatable. Traveling does that to you. It just has that kind of charm. 🙂

  3. Lovely poem Prajakta! You always paint a vivid picture with your poems. I couldn’t describe the word “kaleidoscope” in a better way, you’ve certainly captured the essence of it! Loved it 💕
