• Who am I?

    I am Qrystal; or at least, that's my dot-name! Har har. (My name is really Crystal, but that's not as internet-searchable; hence, switching the C for the little-used letter Q.)

    I am here because I enjoy writing. I do this mostly for myself, but I also have a passion for helping others learn things from the things I write. Now that I am done my Ph.D. in Physics, I am stepping away from academic research so that I can indulge in some creative ways to share my knowledge and inspire the appreciation of scientific thinking in others. I am also working as a tutor, which is one of the jobs I've most enjoyed doing in my life so far.

  • A Limerick Haiku

    Oh wow, a limerick haiku!
    I thought ‘twas too tricky to do!
    But then I found this,
    and I’d be remiss,
    if I didn’t share it with you!

    –a limerick by Qrystal, to introduce the following clever way of meshing limerick and haiku styles:

    There was an old man
    From Peru, whose lim’ricks all
    Look’d like haiku. He

    Said with a laugh “I
    Cut them in half, the pay is
    Much better for two.”

    Alas, there is no signature, so I don’t know who to congratulate for this masterpiece.  Very funny though! :)

      Anyone who can uncover a limerick haiku is a winner in my book :) Thank you for sharing this! I’ve posted it on my fb page for others to enjoy.

      BTW i’m a fellow blogger as well and hope you are on your way to achieving your dreams. Sometimes they have a way of sliding around a bit but don’t lose sight of them. Them’s powerful things, dreams…
