An Open Letter to the N.Y. Times Regarding Their Sunday Crossword

Your circular riddle’s an impossible pill
to swallow. Your blanks I struggle to fill.
The crux of the matter? I never know
just how to harvest the seeds that you sow.
I find your clues exceedingly queer.
Your genius outreaches my talent, I fear.

 

Prompt words today are circular, riddle, outreach and crux. I’m also answering the dVerse Poet’s Quadrille Challenge making use of the word fill in a 44-word poem.
Here’s the dVerse prompt: https://dversepoets.com/2020/02/10/quadrille-97-filling-the-page/

    Actually, the Saturday crossword is harder, but I only had a book of the Sunday crosswords to photograph. I now blog instead of doing crosswords. They used to be a compulsion with my entire family, though. Everyone tried to be the first to grab the newspaper. Otherwise, it was just filling in the blanks earlier family members couldn’t fill in.
