Poetic Heart of Google-

Samuel at dVerse inspired us to try a listing type poem.  He mentioned this site: 
Googlism!  Go ahead type in your name and see what magic appears for you or curse.  


Ella is a new zine
she ends with the beginning-
 Ella is a  "new twist on an old fairytale"
     enchanting retelling of cinderELLA with alien fashions
Ella is determined to free herself from the curse
    which she has grown accustomed
     she must live like a teenager in a fictional medieval village
     where people look like cats n' dogs
Ella is looking for an awesome cello player to release her spell
Ella is a "real Maine camp" located on the Sunday river in Newry
Ella must confront the ogre to win back her creative muse
Ella is artistically driven and will succeed
    she knows the force is on her side
    she has come too far to give up
    she is kind, dedicated to the movie Amelie
    and will return all the toys to their rightful owners
    after the fashion show with Dr. Chandi
    and her yoga class, after her library dues are paid in full
Ella must give popcorn to the world n' poems to break the curse
    and dress like an alien
    perform with Pentatonix
    and plan one hell of a blog party in Kansas
    yes, Ella has red shoes---------
which make her better n' stronger!
    now let's celebrate and be free, 
so free to celebrate--------



That was both funny and musical.
Now, where's my popcorn?

OMG this is hilarious, original and has some serious messages going on. I ESPECIALLY love Ella must confront the Ogre to win back her creative muse". Ha! But given this poem I think your muse is already seriously active. What a HOOT!

Oh, Ellen! How fun! I went to that site yesterday and found cool things. Loved, loved, loved your poem ---- so much so that I too will put on my red shoes!

Awesome! How I want to see this Ella dressed as an alien. In fact, why don't we have a national "dress like an alien" day?

'Ella - new zine' ~ fun writing, and you got so many characters here,- let's celebrate!
Ella said…
Thank you everyone!!! I will be back to comment. I am under the influence of Benadryll and have discovered aliens have issues with human meds. I also covered my body with Vicks Vapor Rub-it smothers Chiggers! I was chigger free and my husband got them and gave them back to me! I will get my powers back, but for now I need meds to make me sleep.
I also have blisters all over my chest from cooking everyone popcorn. Yeah, a rogue kernel took a dive down my shirt-so this is why no SELFIE! I will dress up when I am better-either as myself or an elf~ ATB! Thank you everyone so much~ I will try to comment and make rounds tomorrow!
Susan said…
OZ-Ella is totally cool. I love how you wove in and out of Cinderella here. "Amelie" is the perfect movie! What a riot all the references are ... I'll come to the blog party in Kansas if I can bring my car and bypass the tornado. (Do not stay up all night if you want to rid yourself for rash and chiggers and regain your strength.)

very cool...i'm off to see what I can find...
Semaphore said…
Witty, provocative, hilarious, and always enchanting - you made this a beautifully-crafted experiment pitting expressionism and the calculated algorithms of the search engine. A wonderful read!
Wanda said…
Okay, I couldn't resist. Google thinks some pretty weird things of me. Hope you're doing well.
