Alphabe-Thursday: M is for Moonlit Madness

Madness in the Mangrove swamp
greets our maiden fair
within the mystical marsh
meandering into minstrel’s lair

Mellifluous melodies
erupt from mandolin strings
a mesmerizing minuet                                  
mindful of her misgivings

Mimicking the mantis
praying meditative chants
Keeping time with meter
of mayflies’ buzzing rants

Hypnotic strains masquerade
as medication for tortured soul
intoxicated by maestro’s medley
she loses self control

Musing on how it happened
in middle of moonlit moor
the night she became mistress
to minstrel’s musical score.

But you! You totally rocked this M post for Alphabe-Thursday!

Heavens, girl. You must be a human dictionary.

You know, you were supposed to write something using the letter "M."

hehe!

j/k, obviously. That was pretty damn impressive! You have a wonderful vocabulary. I'm going to have to buy a dictionary now!
