Choose a pleasing image.
Dump all the pieces onto a table.
Don’t let the similar shapes and jumble of color overwhelm.
Every tab has a perfect slot.
Eventually it will make sense.
Take it one bit at a time.
Spread all the pieces printed-side up.
Form a team or go solo.
Refer to the big picture.
Get a strategy.
Assemble the border,
Or piece together a section.
Don’t force connections.
When the shapes are compatible the keys fit the locks.
Attend to details.
Give it time.
Everything you need lies within reach.
Don’t lament a missing piece.
Puzzles will envelope the space and preserve a silhouette,
The absent member remains integral to the whole.
Success increases as the picture forms.
Enjoy the satisfaction of a puzzle solved.
