Midnight Madness

Midnight Madness (Ah! Earth Hour,2012)

All this low tech by candle light
Doesn't do much for my eyesight,
But, pulled the breaker at midnight
Having set up picnic delights.
Marshmellows, grahams, choc'late--Right!
Roasting them o're candle's light.
Toasty charred outsides black as night
Inside sticky sweet 'mellow--Bite!
Ummmm! Another...the flame in sight
Whoa! It's on fire! Whooosh! Now--Bite!
Bag is'ams wrapped tight...
Flame still burns another one--Bite!
Guess I'll try fix the next one right.
Melting choc'late, 'mellow, gr'ams--Bite!
Ummmm! It's squishing tongue fights
To catch each drop of choc'late mite!
Oh!No! An empty bag! What fright!
Yet, that's not all...It's near daylight!
Not just one Hour for Earth's plight,
But five were spent in my requite.
Warm and was fun in spite
Of low tech!...Maybe...more tonight?

"Please try to go Beyond Earth Hour":
There are many ways to conserve without really giving up anything...
Share marshmellows over a candle for an hour on a weekend night with your children or 
Flip the breaker for an Hour--each week and create memories while helping conserve...
Be creative...Make life fun!!

*For Nikko's contest: "Beyond Earth Hour..."

    Deb, some of our best times come when the power goes off. Yes, I love the marshmallows and smores, but keep thinking your bag is half full! Awesome monorhyme -- one of my favorite forms -- and you did it with such flair. Winning wishes for you! Love, carolyn

    What a delightful poem... It inspires me to try to write a 'monorhyme'! By the way, thanks for your comments on 'gypsy eyes'... "aqua/green" sounds 'gypsy, that's for sure. I think I'll try to do something with eyes, blue&green mixed .... but it sonds kinda hard... Terry
