Let the poetry flow!

Moonrat has inspired and encouraged so many of us. The Mischief is such a small example of the ways in which Moonie brings light and life to the world.

How does Moonrat inspire you?
Write a Moonrat-related haiku.

In case brevity isn't your style, feel free to delve into sonnets, couplets, an epic poem, free verse, what have you.

Contest: Write Moonrat a poem. Post your entries in the comments section.

Deadline: 11 pm ET TONIGHT

Award: One $25 Amazon gift certificate donated by Precie

Judge: Moonrat or anyone she designates.

Ach, I just wrote a couple of dozen for Moonie's own blog. I'm all haiku-ed out! Give me a moment...

OK, how about this?

Through dry desert wastes
Thirsty writers crawl to the
Well of Moonrat's blog.

Precie said...

I'm going to leave it to Moonie's discretion, but as co-organizer, I would be happy to allow Moonie to fold her haiku contest into this one. :)

(Yo, dese here stanzas are all part of the same poem.)

Kind-hearted Moonrat
Your warmth flows like clear honey
We feel we know you

You fling us sparks of
Humour and encouragement
From your heart's bright hearth

An insider's view,
Hope, kind words, and some tough talk
What can we give back?

Just our words: these poems,
Our novels, silly comments,
And, of course, our thanks

Hrm. I'll see what I can do. How about a limerick?

There once was a rat named Moonie,
who gathered a group, quite loony,
they were her mischief
their spirits she lifts
That rat icon makes them all swoony.

nice! let's make "swoony" happen!

Must I feel mucus?
Music is better to hear.
Karaoke rocks.

Albino rodent
bounding through the blogosphere.
Listen! Her squeaks speak.

Anya said...

Oh, no! I'm not going to torture Moonie with anymore of my so called poetry. My gift to you, Moonie: No more poems from me, LOL.

Ello said...

Whirl! You killed me again!!!

Ello said...

Ok this is an ode I wrote awhile back but it is fitting tribute to Moonrat:

Ode to Tabasco
Oh glorious red marvel of hot treasure
How I adore thee all the time!
Boring foods now have become a pleasure,
although you burns me behind.

moonrat said...

Thank you all!

Kiersten!! I love it. I'm totally posting it on my blog.

Kiersten said...

Ah, shucks! Thanks! We love YOU, which makes poetry very easy.
