Crossword - Poem by Kelly Kurt

Grid of poem pieces waiting to be solved
Testing my vocabulary
And resolve

The pattern may be random every day
But most often with a mirror
Symmetry

Crisscrossing letters shared across and down
Guide the cruciverbalist
(Proper noun)

A way to keep the brain active and fit
If the editor’s Will Shorts
Most will quit

Topic(s) of this poem: life, love, memory, nature, hope

    Awww yes, enjoyed your words and it is wise to keep the brain active in any way we can. When it ceases up a great deal of pain and sadness unfolds..... (Report) Reply
