    Please take a few minutes to read Misbah’s excellent poetic response to Brenda’s word prompt “puzzle.”
    Good work on these poems, Misbah, and the last was a touching dedication to Ron and Brenda. https://hubpages.com/literature/An-Incomplete-Puzzle

            I loved all your poems on Brenda's word prompt, "Puzzle". Really well-framed but I loved the one you dedicated to Brenda the best. I couldn't help crying- it was that emotional. Kudos to you. Have an awesome Sunday.

            Thank you, John, for sharing Misbah's work.

      Hello Misbah!
      All your poems are insightful and well crafted. Excellent response to the word prompt, Puzzle. Life indeed is a puzzle, and we are forever, trying to find the right piece to fit in.
      The dedication to Brenda is heartfelt. Concluding your words on a positive note is good. That’s the only option, we human beings have. Isn’t it?
      I hope it helps to comfort Brenda.
      Thank you for sharing.
      Thank you John, for sharing this in the forum.

    I enjoyed reading all of the poems, but I loved the second one. The story is thought provoking and memorable. It's the type of poem that appeals to me.

    I read about Brenda's loss on Facebook. Misbah's poem about the event is lovely. I think it will be very comforting for Brenda. Misbah has expressed sadness about the loss, which I'm sure Brenda feels, but has also referred to a future meeting between Ron and Brenda.

      Dear Linda, thank you so much for your very thoughtful and sweet comment. I'm glad you liked the second poem about an unknown artist and his work. I'm glad you also enjoyed the poem I dedicated to Bredz; I hope it brings her some comfort and strength.

      Wishing you a Blissful Sunday smile

      Many Blessings and Much Love

    Thanks John for sharing Misbah's poems in response to Brenda's prompt.  I hope that when she eventually reads this, and learns of the many people who care about her losing her beloved Ron, it brings her some comfort knowing that so many people care about her.  May God bless her.  You too Misbah and John!

    Misbah
    I'm so glad to hear this word prompt got your words flowing.

    "A Lovely Existence by Your Side" shows us how love is perplexing but we have all the pieces in front of us to make it work. 
    It's a lovely canvas just waiting for us to paint our destination.

    "An Artist Unknown" paints a sad picture of an unknown artist.
    He stayed up all night painting a picture of a woman he admired, but collapsed with only the cat to mourn him.
    The woman in the picture lives on while another enjoys her company.

    It could have been you, destiny keeps going on in the cosmos.

    Take a chance when you have it...least your dreams become broken.


    "The Misfitting ~ She Was Fixing It Wrong!"
    Tells us a story about how one can believe someone is the love of his life, but the feeling is not returned. 
    No matter what one does, it doesn't change.
    She must let him go & find one who really takes her to heart.


    "In a Different World Now ~ a Poem Dedicated to Bredz" Misbah wrote an introduction to this poem where she recalls telling me about propose day & roses day.
    I remember telling her I knew we didn't have much time left together.
    Not that he was sick lying in bed, but that I knew he didn't feel well.
    I knew he wanted this pain to end & that we had heard the sound of a bird calling, but we couldn't find the bird.

    It was a happy chirping sound but I knew that it was a sign that Ron would be leaving me soon.

    And so it was...

    Thank you so much Misbah for being my friend & helping me through this...even believing me when my words sound like the voice of a crazy lady.
    But I really did know...even so,...I wasn't prepared.

    Now to Misbah's poem,
    "In a Different World Now" shows how Ron & I were together knowing that this day would one day come.

    Since he's left, I've been broken but I will always keep our promises and fulfill each one.

    The universe dealt us quite a hand.   One heck of a puzzle to solve, but we did it each day smiling at one another.

    I will leave no stone unturned.  I will complete the pieces of the puzzle we started & send it to you completed.

    Thank you so much gal.  I really appreciate this poem & all the love & support you send me.

    These poems are terrific.  I will post a link in the word prompt article.

      Take care and stay healthy.
