If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

1st Crusader challenge and a birthday!

Hello every one- Its Friday (I posted early)


 Before I get to far into this post I want to highlight a wonderful Hobbit by the name of C.N. Nevets. It is his birthday and he has free gifts- because hobbits give out gifts on their birthdays. Go check it out and tell him Happy Birthday HERE

On to the crusader challenge! 


Getting to know me in 300 words or less



Noises come from both my hands
A bloviate of sound.
I cuddle into blankets
Akin to rabbit down.

I’m loyal to the nth degree
There is no fuliguline.
I traveled ‘cross the ocean once
And drank some great white wine.

I write with pen and paper
To bring my thoughts about.
I once saw a man blade dance
He really went all out.

Smoking is a nasty thing
But I can’t seem to quit.
I had fun creating this
And that’s the end of it.

I  have revealed something about me that isn’t strictly true, can you guess what it is?
I will reveal the Lie tomorrow...

Nice poem :D I wrote one too, for my challenge! :)

Deborah Walker said...

That's a fun poem, Summer. I'm going to guess, and it is a guess -- writing longhand.

Devin Bond said...

Hard decision! I'm torn between smoking and blade dancers. Blade dancer is way cooler. Good poem!

Old Kitty said...

I love this poem!! I love it!! I love the rhyming of wine with fuliguline!! Awwwww this is really really fabulous!!!! Yay!!!!!

Oooh what secrets have you revealed here?!?!! Erm... you prefer red wine to white??!?!

Happy birthday to your wonderful Hobbit friend!! Take care
x

Jules said...

You don't smoke do you? Anyway I liked this. Hope all goes well this weekend :)

Carol Kilgore said...

My first guess is that you recently gave up smoking OR that you've never traveled 'cross the ocean.

~Nicole Ducleroir~ said...

Fun poem! And impressive, considering the prompt words we had to slip in! I'm going to throw out this guess: you aren't really (or still) a smoker??

Have a great weekend!

C. N. Nevets said...

Thanks for linking to my birthday post! I hope people come and take advantage of the giveaways.

And I love the getting-to-know-you poem!

And my guess, for the heck of it, is that you don't do white wine.

gideon 86 said...

I really liked you poem, Summer.

I going to guess the lie is smoking.

Ann said...

Great poem Summer. I am going to guess it is the smoking. Very clever how you used bloviate and fuliguline. Very clever!

Zan Marie said...

I'm guessing you've crossed the ocean twice. Had to go home, now didn't you? ; ) Great poem.

Beth said...

Good poem. I'm curious of the lie.

Good point about having to cross the ocean twice but I'm not sure you would have thought of that while you were writing. I think you don't use blankets. A duvet instead, or just sheets.

Michael Offutt said...

This is a nice poem. And I finally understand the Crusader challenge thing because I went to Rachael's blog (I should have checked that first). Great use of the fugli...word.

Eileen Wiedbrauk said...

the smoking was my guess as well for the lie

danika dinsmore said...

Hi Summer! I stopped by to tell you that you are the winner of the Brigitta book giveaway over at The White Forest, only to find this delightful poem. I'll wager it's the blade dancing - I have no idea what that is.

I'll need your address to send the book. You will have your choice as the new edition and e-book are also available. You can e-mail me privately at info (at) danikadinsmore (dot) com

Chantele Sedgwick said...

I love your poem!! So awesome! :D I'm curious to see what your lie is!

Liz Fichera said...

Awe.Some! I'll guess that the lie is...you smoke?

Angela Scott said...

Great poem. I'm impressed. For some reason, most of my poems start out, Roses are red (I'm not a very good poet). Very nice.

The lie . . . you do not write with pen and paper.

Kerrin said...

awesome poem!
My guess on your lie....you haven't seen a blade dancer

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I have no idea what blade dance means, but I'm going to go with the smoking one.

Tanya Reimer said...

ohh, tricky, I'll guess that you never smoked.

Louise said...

"Write with pen and paper", surely not?

Crusader saying hi.

tinadchayes said...

Fun, now let me see. Hmmmm.
I'm guessing the 'lie' is watching a blade dance and that the smoking was your secret? It's a fairy-worthy poem either way. :)

I'll check in tomorrow to see how wrong I am. :)

projectfraeya said...

I like it, I can't decide between the blade dancing and smoking.

J.L. Campbell said...

I'm useless at poetry, so of course, I have the greatest admiration for poets.

Danette said...

Terrific poetry! I am terrible at rhyming but appreciate when anyone else does it! I am going to guess that you don't like wine also.

erica and christy said...

I'm going to say you don't smoke. And I will reveal that I had no idea fuliguline and wine rhymed. :)

Regina said...

Great poem. I really enjoyed getting to know you a little more. I am going to guess maybe you didn't travel across the ocean once. Maybe you have crossed more than once. :) New follower and fellow crusader saying Hello!

Witless Exposition said...

Great job! Really impressed with the rhyming you've done. Would never have come up with the wine and the fulig--oh, whatever that duck word was! I'm going to guess that your fib is writing in long hand. If you do, I'm really impressed. Every time I try, it comes out a mess.

Gen Revelation said...

lol I did a poem too. I'm gonna pick noises coming from your hands because I don't think you're an X-man.

Sylvia van Bruggen said...

fun poem!

I go with longhand! :)

Rachael Harrie said...

Ooh, love it!!! Yep, I'm going to have to go with smoking being the lie ;)

Can't wait to find out :)

Hugs,

Rach

Anny Cook said...

Excellent poem!

The Golden Eagle said...

I love your poem!

My guess would be that the lie is you don't smoke.

Rachel Morgan said...

I think.... I think you HAVEN'T seen a man blade dance? Or maybe... you've never traveled across the ocean?! Darn, these are hard! Well done with the poem though :-)

Rachel Morgan said...

Hmm.. the lie is... seeing a man blade dance? Or, wait, crossing the ocean?
Darn, these are so hard to guess!
Well done for the poem though :-)

xx Rachel

Yves said...

Hi Crusader...nice post :-)

L.A. Colvin said...

HHMM this is nice. I don't think you smoke.

E.J. Wesley said...

Oh, I like this one! Good job!

EJ

Kerri Cuev said...

Great poem!
And the lie is Mr. blade man? Hmmm that was a tough one.

Madeleine said...

Fun poem. I guess maybe you did quit smoking? :O)

Donna Hole said...

That was beautiful :)

........dhole

Amanda Milner said...

Great poem! Hmm, I think the lie is that you smoke.

Lisa Potts said...

Loved the poem. I would have to guess your lie is that you write with pen and paper.

Patricia A. Timms said...

Great job!

I'm going with blade dancing. However, if this is true, I need to see what that is exactly to believe it. haha!

LadyJai said...

I'm going to have to go with "There is no fuliguline." as the lie. :)

Hello fellow crusader!

Scheherazade said...

Too tough to guess. I think smoking is your lie.

kar_took said...

It seems a bit obvious to be smoking...but I can't think of anything else. (I know I'm a bit late to the challenge but I'm not cheating by looking at your next post. Honest.)
