A Llama Limerick at Midnight

questival

As part of a 24-hour Cotopaxi Questival (scavenger hunt), I was tasked with coming up with a llama limerick at midnight. This was the result.

 

A Llama Limerick at Midnight

 

A llama was going a-camping.

Over the hills he went tramping.

We followed suit,

Tracing his route.

How’s that for limerick vamping?

Simplicity

Simplicity

 

I want to write you of simplicity.

The sky, the land, and me.

Ribbons distinguished,

The light and the dark,

Candles extinguished,

The quell and the spark. And the tree.

And the sea.

The Ides of March.

The color of pi.

Singing of stars and oatmeal,

Of comfortable chairs.

The music of typewriters, attics, and stairs.

The sharing of slippers and slipping of shares.

Electrical outlets.

Oceanous inlets.

Come rootbeer and dusk.

Coconut husk.

Come see.

The language and fabric of you

And me.

-M.M.

Miner Discovery

Miner Discovery

 

The miner was mining (as miners will do)

With a pick in his hand and a foot in each shoe,

Chipping away in the dark at the stone,

Humming a melody, lost and alone,

With naught but the minimal light from his hat,

Searching for anything new to look at—

A flecklet of gold or silver would do,

Or rubies or diamonds or sapphires blue,

Still chipping away in the colorless light,

Which never was day nor ever was night.

 

Then with a swing his pickaxe struck home,

The wall so soft that it might have been foam.

“Hoho!” he cried, “I seem to have struck

My very first underground vein of good luck!”

Then pulling his pickaxe out of the crack,

He saw it was covered in something, not black,

But white—a goopy glue, frothy and slick.

It poured from the crack, clumpy and thick.

It formed a small puddle around his old boots

And came to a stop. He let out three hoots.

 

After tasting the tip of his pick with great care

He knew he had found something yummy to share.

So he scampered away to call the whole crew,

Barefoot, of course, for his boots stuck like glue.

And that is the story of how it was found

That marshmallows come from under the ground.

‘Tis a Terrible Crime and a Sin

‘Tis a Terrible Crime and a Sin

 

‘Tis a terrible crime and a sin,

To be pommeled with papers again.

Forgive me for asking,

But who let this blasting,

Overstrung New Year blow in?

Let it Go

I recently saw Disney’s latest animated fairytale-musical Frozen and really enjoyed it. My favorite part of the whole production was definitely the music. One song in particular, “Let it Go”, left me speechless. I love the beauty, inspiration, and empowering message of the song, performed by Idina Menzel (known for her role as Elphaba in Wicked). The following clip is a video of my piano cover of “Let it Go”. I hope you enjoy it.

No News

 

No News is Good News

 

No news is good news.

New lies are good lies.

 

No news is great news.

No news is late news.

Possibly, hate-news.

Then comes the short fuse—

—Saturated and funny

And miserably punny—

They gun down reviewers

Carting off money,

For whales with tales,

And tails of wails,

The fails and flails.

And bales of sales.

Gales of falsified

Trails to sail.

 

But it’s all made up:

The hate and the carting,

The late-coming starting,

The fails of folks at the mall.

 

No news is good news.

No news is bad news.

No news is no news at all.

Beauty in the Absurd

Near Rhyme

 

Near Rhyme

Clear Sign:

Stairs Aligned,

Stars Pinned,

Snared Again.

Snoring Rain

Asking, “Can

Broken Cars

Biking, Hear

Rhyming Near?”
