Puzzles And Poetry - Poem by Val Jennings

A puzzle is like poetry.
It causes us to reflect
And see a thing quite differently.
Is it object or object?

Some fit in place so easily.
'Have we done this before? '
Some can't be solved without commissary.
Pondering is a chore.

Some are full of challenge,
designed for the elite;
A contest for the higher minds
where my Mensa friends compete.

Some are easy, seek and find;
much like tic-tac-toe.
If you don't solve it with an X
perhaps you play the O.

    Ah yes, poetry can be so very different. And that's why we love it.
    As different as people themselves with all our personalities and
    backgrounds. Very well put! Keep writing and sharing with us!

    Best Wishes,
