Orb Puzzle


pink orb

If I were a piece of your puzzle what hole would I fill?

Am I part of your landscape

the moss on the side of a tree

a petal among the flowers

the underside of a cloud?

If I were a piece of your puzzle where do you need me?

Am I your mirror

you glance at for reassurance

the thought you are reaching for

or the dream you’ve forgotten?

If I were a piece of your puzzle are you still searching

where to place me

or have you lost me under the table?

Have you slid me

easily into your picture

or do you suspect

I’m part of another world

you dare not enter?

About orbphotog

Born in the West, I studied photography and painting at the School of Visual Arts in New York City before being drawn back home to the open skies of western living. My camera is always close at hand to capture changing light and to record what catches my eye. However, it is my recent discovery of being able to see orbs through the medium of digital photography that has sparked my passion for photographing the night. All photographs in this blog are copyrighted by me. Occasional photos by guests are copyrighted by the photographer. Please contact if you would like to order prints.

  1. You’re a poet and a talented one indeed. I’m grateful you introduced me to the orbs and this poem is just a reflection of how majestic they are.
