Delighting in my God, I desire to dwell in His pleasure and to help others experience true delight.

"Delight Yourself in the Lord;
And He will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord,
Trust also in Him, and He will do it.
And He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,
And your judgment as the noonday.  
Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him;..." Ps 37:4-7a

A to Z Challenge: A poem of Qs

Quest or Quandary

                 By Maria Dunn

What query do you bring
In your quest to know a thing?
Is your satisfaction quenched,
That you’ll find your answer hence?

Please tell me if you will,
What you write there with your quill?
Let’s not quibble over dribble,
Or quetch about the quibble.
Instead have a quiet nibble
Of this quail prepared with skill.

Will you not pose your question 
While you quell hunger and you quaff?
Your quirky, quizzical lip
Makes me quite quixotic quip
As I wait to hear of quagmire, quicksand, or scoff.
Shall I present our quodlibet
And quack about it yet,
When I do not even know what the quiddity is you quote?

But look now, you look queasy and quite a bit uneasy.
Are you questrist or just qualmish?

Listen to my quackish quiddle
When I must squeeze you round your middle
To release the choking tiddle
Of which I quasi qualify, lest you die.  Oh my.

Now you may rest from your quest.
No quandary now.  I must quiesce

  2. Wow that was something Maria, very clever.

  3. Now THAT is a creative Q post! :-)

  4. I am in awe... great Q words!!

  5. Clever, fun, and quick-witted use of "Q". Mucho delightful. As always you leave me with a smile.

    1. Thanks all. I think it is obvious that I had fun with this one. Glad I could promote some pleasure, insight some delight, and spark a smile. Appreciate you all. God bless, Maria

  6. Hi Maria,
    Thanks so much for stopping by my site today. I have to say I love the Q poem. Did you have to refer to a list? I dont think I could have pulled that off without one! I even have a favorite line..."Listen to my quackish quiddle When I must squeeze you round your middle..." It brings up such "huggie" sorts of feelings!Very sweet, Thanks again, Z~

    1. Hi Zoe, I enjoy visiting with you. I am glad you liked the Q poem. Yes for this one I confess I did refer to a list. The squeeze round the middle in this case was meant to be the heimlich maneuver, but yes the terminology is quite fitting for huggie feelings too. So glad to have our friendship continue. God bless, Maria

  7. Quite quality quick-witted quirkiness.

    1. And thank you for your quick-witted comment! God bless, Maria
