Crossword

Updated on November 20, 2016

*Crossword*

thou art waging, game of words,
like a crisscross crossword.

Every word spilled,
leads in a direction, never aimed,
Weaving a haphazard adventure.

Though started in a right spirit,
Now, none shalt halt,
until one is lost,
In a clueless scrambled state.

      Thanks tamara. Wrote this when I saw people arguing like they are possessed by some kind of urge to win it. But both loose ultimately.

      Delightful! And, they are also addicting. Hard to stop, once I start a word-puzzle :-)

      Very meaningful poem and beautifully correlated!

      How often we find ourselves 'at crossroads ' in life. Life is like that and we humans somehow manage to find our ways.

      Thanks for sharing!

      It's an interesting subject for a poem, Hari. I enjoy crossword puzzles, and love challenging ones, although there are some with very specific vocabularies with which one must be closely familiar.

      Ruby, thank you for visiting and appreciating. It is always nice to read your appreciation and comments. I am not a great player of crossword as I get stuck many a times and that does feel bad. :-)
