A baby’s smile -/- ” It’s most worthwhile ” -/- There is no bile
Sweet juvenile -/- ” All the while ” -/- Charming style
It’s never vile -/- ” A fine profile ” -/- It’s full of guile
This is my granddaughter Skylah in 2013 just about a month after she was born. Like I said, there is nothing sweeter than a baby’s smile.
This poem is a Tic-Tac-Toe Poem.
It was created by the author in 2014. This format will read as a poem no matter what direction it is read from. It requires a grid like a Tic-Tac-Toe game, unfortunate I couldn’t do it on the site’s editor. The rules are to create a poem where each line has three each, three word phrases. The poem has a total of three lines. Each three word phrase lines up in a Tic-tac-toe like matrix where the poem reads from every direction (up, down, across, diagonally, and backwards) in a poetic statement.
It is a good word/brain exercise.
