Probably biting off more than I can chew
But here's a new puzzle type for you.
The usual neologistic rules apply
And another condition with which you must comply
Without wanting to sound too terse
I'll only answer questions posted in verse.

To partake in this light hearted distraction
You have to define the following action
I MARISI quite a bit at present
It's nothing nasty in fact quite pleasent
So to prove yourself a puzzling world beater
Define the verb to MARISI according to Peter.

Can anyone at all MARISI,
And is it doing something easy?
Can one MARISI indoors or out,
In order to do what this all is about?

Is it possible to do this in
A car? A house? A diner? An inn?
And one more question, on a whim:
Is this neologism an acronym?

Can anyone at all MARISI,
And is it doing something easy?
Can one MARISI indoors or out,
In order to do what this all is about?

I can say this without any qualms,
It is mainly done by HAFs & HAMs.
Inside, outside, night or day.
If you want to Marisi then you may.


Is it possible to do this in
A car? A house? A diner? An inn?
And one more question, on a whim:
Is this neologism an acronym?

Not wishing to gave too many clues,
You can Marisi wherever you choose.
An acronym now isn't that quaint
I can say categorically "No it aint"

Can you Marisi together, or lone?
Is a tangible object in place when you're done?
Do you need anything but your body an mind?
Is Marisi a thing you can do if you're blind?

Or if deaf, paraplegic, a toddler or child?
Can a house cat Marisi? Can birds in the wild?
Is it fun? Is it useful? Or healthy? Serene?
Or exciting? Expensive? Or does it bring green?

If I said "you Marisi me", would I make sense?
"I Marisied at her" would that be an offense?
Can I see you Marisi, or is it not obvious?
Versponses are great, thanks a lot for amusing us.

Can you Marisi together, or lone?
Is a tangible object in place when you're done?
Do you need anything but your body an mind?
Is Marisi a thing you can do if you're blind?

You can Marisi with another bod,
But mostly you'd be on your tod.
Your body and mind would help a bit,
But you definitely need some type of kit.
As for sightlessness I'm in a bit of a bind,
I'm not sure if you could do if you're blind


Or if deaf, paraplegic, a toddler or child?
Can a house cat Marisi? Can birds in the wild?
Is it fun? Is it useful? Or healthy? Serene?
Or exciting? Expensive? Or does it bring green?

Deaf ,Paraplegic I'd have to say aye
Toddlers only eat and cry.
As for child they could do the biz
Provided they were a bit of a wiz.

With regard to the rest of your list
Some are hits others missed
Health, Serenity, Expensive, Green,
None of these, know what i mean
As for useful, exciting or fun,
The middle is the most likely one.


If I said "you Marisi me", would I make sense?
"I Marisied at her" would that be an offense?
Can I see you Marisi, or is it not obvious?
Versponses are great, thanks a lot for amusing us.

If the first two lines were your quotes
I'd send for the men in white coats,
If i Marisi you could see,
assuming you were in my company.

Having posted this puzzle I'm now despondent,
It's very difficult being the respondent.

Is Marisi-ing done with a paper and pen?
Are the object(s) depleted, or useful again?
Could you do this a century past, even two?
Is the prop that is needed bigger than you?
Is it some sort of game? Is it skill? Is it luck?
Can you excel at Marisi, and can you suck?

Does Marisi-ing require brains, and then some,
Intelligence that of a member of MENSA?
Does one need supplies for this activity,
Coins, cards, or handkerchiefs in ord'r to Marisi?

Perhaps to Marisi, you need slight of hand,
A nice little bit of legerdemain?
Does one Marisi with his or her entire
Body, or only a part of it, sire?

Is the item needed for Marisi-ing food?
Or maybe a game, perhaps a film that's good?
In order to Marisi, would it take much time,
Or if in a hurry, would you be fine?

Can one Marisi at all times of day,
Or must one wait for light for this to be okay?
If not that, perchance the vice versa is true,
Only at nighttime can Marisi-ing you do?

Is this forum involved? Or maybe this is relevant:
Does this thing require one of the four elements?
Earth, perhaps water, maybe fire or air;
And you're doing excellent; please do not despair.

So we've established it's a happy thing?
A thing that brings us quite a bit of fun?
A deed that does no damage when it's done?
Can it be done in Winter, Fall, or Spring?
Or do we need the weather to be hot,
Or dry, at least, as in the racing season?
And if you did it, would I know the reason?
Do you get paid for doing it, or not?
The kit involved: would this perhaps be spherical,
Rectangular? Or thin? Or elongate?
A fishing rod, or reel, or net, or bait?
Or something techy, nerdy and numerical?

Oh God, I'm such a lousy sonneteer.
I think I'd better leave my questions here.

No paper and pen will you require
And the object used does not expire.
This could only be done in recent times,
A bit like puzzling just in rhymes.
The prop is smaller than your puzzle hoster,
But a bit bigger than let's say a toaster.
There is not involved any game,
And as for luck & skill response the same.
Don't get frustrated, down or sad
but at this verb there's neither good nor bad.

Intelligence that of a member of MENSA?
Does one need supplies for this activity,
Coins, cards, or handkerchiefs in ord'r to Marisi?

Composing this couplet is like shelling peas
I can simply say no, to all of these


Perhaps to Marisi, you need slight of hand,
A nice little bit of legerdemain?
Does one Marisi with his or her entire
Body, or only a part of it, sire?

Hmm Sire... at last a show of respect,
Well i suppose it's the least I could expect.
Let's move on, this puzzle lingers,
To Marisi you don't need magicians fingers.
More than one part of the body is employed
whenever the object is deployed


Is the item needed for Marisi-ing food?
Or maybe a game, perhaps a film that's good?
In order to Marisi, would it take much time,
Or if in a hurry, would you be fine?

No to Marisi you don't need anything edible,
Or films or games I hope that's credible.
To Marisi does not take very long,
About the length of your average pop song.


Can one Marisi at all times of day,
Or must one wait for light for this to be okay?
If not that, perchance the vice versa is true,
Only at nighttime can Marisi-ing you do?

Hard to say if you're wrong or right
'Cos you can Marisi both day and night


Is this forum involved? Or maybe this is relevant:
Does this thing require one of the four elements?
Earth, perhaps water, maybe fire or air;

O my Lord I thank thee so
To all of these a big fat NO!.


And you're doing excellent; please do not despair.

Starting this puzzle I was feeling nervous
And already my brain requires a service

A clarification I propose...
When you say "kit" do you mean clothes?
Or do you mean a collection of stuff
That is used when put together enough?

To Marisi do you need only one thing?
A computer? Some food? A bell to ring?
When you Marisi, do you make a sound?
Would someone in another room know you're around?

The prop, I ask, well, might it hold
Items which are important? Old?
Or is it just the prop that's needed,
Not items which inside it are secret?

Is the prop of materials man-made,
Plastic? Rubber? Or metal displayed?
Perhaps it is wooden, or paper perchance,
Or is one using it to keep their balance?

So we've established it's a happy thing?
A thing that brings us quite a bit of fun?
A deed that does no damage when it's done?

Yes it's happy and I guess it's fun
but there's a bit more so work to be done
Before I move on I nearly forgot
It does no damage, not a jot


Can it be done in Winter, Fall, or Spring?
Or do we need the weather to be hot,

I'm not sure it was your intention
But I do it in the season you didn't mention
Yes when I Marisi it's usually hot
But need not be, so FA not.


Or dry, at least, as in the racing season?
And if you did it, would I know the reason?

Only flat racing is in the dry my boy,
Have you not seen the mud on Tony McCoy.
I if was Marising and you were near
Then i guess the reason why would be pretty clear


Do you get paid for doing it, or not?
The kit involved: would this perhaps be spherical,
Rectangular? Or thin? Or elongate?
A fishing rod, or reel, or net, or bait?
Or something techy, nerdy and numerical?

Unfortunately one doesn't get paid
and the kit is totally man made,
It kinda rectangular or even square
Not exactly so please beware
You must be one hell of a slueth
Or did I mention that I fished in my youth
Having said that without a doubt,
The kit is not for catching trout.
Techy would best describe this thing
The answer to which the next post will bring.


Oh God, I'm such a lousy sonneteer.
I think I'd better leave my questions here.

Oh come now Howard you're too meek and mild
you sure your name's not Oscar, Mr Wilde
And Wordworm don't be taken aback
But some of your q's were near the right track.

Lord almighty I need a cold shower

When you do this mystery thing
Are you making a new sumfing?

Can you do it in your car,
As you go both near and far?

Is the kit a radio?
Are you listening to a show?

Is any sport involved in this?
Tennis perhaps, with hit and miss?

Have you got a new iPhone
So that you can drone and drone?

Are you taking lots of shots
Photos that is, not pops and pots

Are you watching out for birds
Or other animals - watch out for turds!

Are you collecting an item or two?
Is the kit an album to put things into?

When you do this mystery thing
Are you making a new sumfing?

Still the rhymes show no signs of abating,
When you do this you are not creating.


Can you do it in your car,
As you go both near and far?

You could do it in your car in relative peace
but not if spotted by the police.


Is the kit a radio?
Are you listening to a show?

this question leaves you on the rocks
No FM Radios or shock jocks.


Is any sport involved in this?
Tennis perhaps, with hit and miss?

To this line of thought you should call a halt
You've just served up a double fault.


Have you got a new iPhone
So that you can drone and drone?

Drone and drone! I'm most amused
An iPhone is something that could be used


Are you taking lots of shots
Photos that is, not pops and pots

An interesting thought but sadly a miss,
I only take shots when I'm on the pi...


Are you watching out for birds
Or other animals - watch out for turds!

No reptiles, bird, or elephants
To this puzzle have any relevance


Are you collecting an item or two?
Is the kit an album to put things into?

Another good thought my English petal
the only albums I have are heavy metal

Would someone in another room know you're around?

At last someone guesses the prop
So questions on that now can stop
Yes the prop is without dispute
That item we all use to compute.
If you Marisi and someone is near
then I pretty sure they'll be able to hear
If they are far and I'm not being ironic
Thy couldn't unless their ear was bionic

Or is it part of a necessary thing
To use a computer? Like "start-up sound",
Or some other thing that can be found?

And does Marisi-ing make one happy,
And can it be done on a desktop or lappy?

If I understand you correctly there's no sound,
Anywhere in the solution to be found.

And does Marisi-ing make one happy,

Any sort of computer will serve you well
Apple, Hewlett and even dell.
Marising is a happy thing
and a sense of excitment it may bring.
I have to say my answers look crappy
Compared to your genius rhyming of lappy.

Afternoon Lynne hope you're in fine fettle,
And that you didn't mind me calling you petal.
As for your question there's no pretending
Marising does not involve any spending.
In any case since the banking crises
I can't afford those on-line prices.

In summer dry or winter wet
You just need the internet
I should mention at this junction

So on this website, one reads and types.
Does one also watch, as if on Skype?
Is messaging relevant, maybe downloading too,
Or is it a search engine, like Google or Yahoo!?

Maybe it is a forum, or encyclopedia?
(Of course, it's that I'm speaking of Wikipedia.)
Are you searching for information
Which brings you joy, pleasure, and elation?

So on this website, one reads and types.
Does one also watch, as if on Skype?

On the site you only read
but to get there you must type
Another point for you to heed
It's got nothing to do with Skype


Is messaging relevant, maybe downloading too,
Or is it a search engine, like Google or Yahoo!?

The search engine accounts for the typing bit,
If you're lucky you'll get a useful hit.
No messages or downloads involved
As you'll see when this is solved



Maybe it is a forum, or encyclopedia?
(Of course, it's that I'm speaking of Wikipedia.)
Are you searching for information
Which brings you joy, pleasure, and elation?

The site's not a forum nor is it wiki,
If it were this would have been a quickie.
I can say though without hesitation,
The whole point is seeking information.
Pleasure & Joy I'm sure you'll choose
But only if the site bears good news


And Balin when you used the word Skype,
I was tempted to rhyme it with Michael Stipe.

Is it a news site, like CNN,
Or more sports-related, like ESPN?
Does one use the "I'm Feeling Lucky" button
To get where they're going, or does that help nothin'?

Are there images and videos next
To the stuff that you read, which is called text?
Is the reading material article-type,
Or is it propaganda, believing the hype?

Sports & News are a pretty good guess
But I get all that from the printed press
The Lucky button I never click
But I'm sure it would do the trick


Are there images and videos next
To the stuff that you read, which is called text?

There are images to be seen
And not much text in between
And though this may seem quite absurd
Image is not the ideal word


Is the reading material article-type,
Or is it propaganda, believing the hype?

I must say in my own little dominion
I prefer to rely on my own opinion.


Or, perchance, you're finding a blog,
One of many in cyberspace fog?

This question will not make you top dog
I am not reading anyone's blog

Are you browsing a gallery?
Perhaps of the humor variety?
Are you seeing a drawing, a photo or 'chop?
Or an animation, or film clips nonstop?

Are you reading an online comic?
Or getting useful information, perhaps economic?
Are the images and words a part of a game?
Or a riddle or puzzle that you must tame?

Is it online GIFs, you know,
With plenty captions there below?
Is info needed for your use
In later puzzles? Or something obtuse?
Do you Marisi on the job,
Or at home, in leisurely lob?

Not wanting to spoil the plans you've made
I must say no to all I'm afraid.

At home yes, at work you won't be blackballed
because on my office PC it's not firewalled

How is the information useful to you?
For work? For something you must do?
Just for the sake of being well informed?
Or to know if by money or rewards you'll be warmed?

It's not for work more for leisure
I would never describe my job as a pleasure


Just for the sake of being well informed?
Or to know if by money or rewards you'll be warmed?

It informs me of something in a flash
but doesn't concern itself with cash

Will the info later be
Used by you? For family?
Or for something simpler, say,
For meals, TV, or sport, okay?

To the above and to give you hope
The best I can offer is a yope


Or for something simpler, say,
For meals, TV, or sport, okay?

The answer is very simple you'll see
But not sport, meals or even tv


Now folks please don't weaken your resolve
You have now just 3 days left to solve

On the day that you're enlightening?

3 days hence is July the first
3 days for us to do our worst

Do you read about celebs
When you're on the interwebs?
Do you read about movies?
Do you read about duties?
Do you read about some songs?
Do you want to sing along?
Do you read what you'd call news?
Is this all a clever ruse?
Do you read about folks you know?
Do you read about places to go?
Do you read about things to buy?
Does that question make you sigh?
Do you read it day or night?
Do you read with all your might?
Do you read about stories or books?
Do people give you funny looks?
Do you read about a hobby
Till the pixels become blobby?
Do you read so you can do
something, or having read, are you through?

Yes indeed in 3 days there's a nice event
Which no volcanic ash can prevent
Having led you on this merry dance
I'm boarding the ferry to holiday in France

3 days for us to do our worst

I would rather say best but it didn't rhyme

Best, worst it's all the same
In the puzzle solving game

I'll ask a question highly rated:
is the info oft updated?
Does it maybe forecast weather,
tells you to wear shorts or leather?

I'm so glad you took the risk
And mostly solved this young Galfisk
And while this guess is totally terrific
Marising is some slightly more specific

Apologies for ignoring these great suggestions
I was posting when you asked your questions


Do you read about celebs
When you're on the interwebs?

I think publicists act like a vulture
and absolutely detest the celebrity culture


Do you read about movies?
Do you read about duties?
Do you read about some songs?
Do you want to sing along?
Do you read what you'd call news?
Is this all a clever ruse?

Even though these lines of thought I love
I must say no to all the above


Do you read about folks you know?
Do you read about places to go?

Ok Ohala I'll grant your wish
yes to places to go with a slight ish


Do you read about things to buy?
Does that question make you sigh?
Do you read it day or night?
Do you read with all your might?
Do you read about stories or books?
Do people give you funny looks?
Do you read about a hobby
Till the pixels become blobby?
Do you read so you can do
something, or having read, are you through?

I know you are trying your best
But I must say no to all the rest.


Ok marising is partly looking up weather
but there's more to it altogether.
If this puzzle you want to win
pay particular heed to my response to Lynne
And while I do this willy nilly
To some this behaviour may seem silly

Are you checking the forecast for your destination,
And pack only the things you will need on vacation?
Do you frequently check as the forecast updates
In the hope that you'll need not umbrella, but shades?
If it's so, that's what I do for skydiving days
Hoping forecast will only show sun's yellow rays.

While not exactly an according to hoyler
it's enough for me to post the ......

*************Spoiler***************

Looking up the weather what's odd about that
But you're puzzle host is a bit of a prat.
So excited am I about my annual trip
Into a frenzy myself I whip
I check daily the climate of our location
Months before our actual vacation

My wife thinks this is pretty sad
And that maybe I'm a little mad
I say "today at 80 the temperature peaks"
"Big Deal" she says "we don't leave for 9 weeks"

To define the verb to Marisi here's your chance
It's looking up weather way too far in advance.
Marisi comes from Aimsir the Irish for weather
With the letters all jumbled together

I Hope this solution is not too mundane
And that the puzzle didn't drive you insane.
And though the solution is somewhat boring
Your rhyming guesses had me roaring.

My only wish is that all of you
Got some enjoyment from it too.
And so I leave in 2 days time
For a fortnight of cheese and glasses of wine
