I playfully scatter pieces on the Scrabble board of life

A chaotic mass of tiny little squares competing for attention

I carefully slide each tile so that I have a personal selection of words

A man-made creation of logic and order from the available squares

I observe the unbroken maze with each piece interlocked so that each word has the other to lean on

Each tile reliant on the connection that makes it whole

So that I am drawn to that single tile

The one that sits alone

The one that has no meaning and yet means everything in the world

A single square that has no word to describe it

It does not need a word because it sits in the centre of the Scrabble board of life and has my attention
