    RhymeLovingWriter I think of us all as a bunch of kids here in one family... playing with words, feeling whatever surfaces from our souls and learning together.

    Bless you Suz-zen. I haven't been called a 'kid' in a very long time.

    I too, RhymeLovingWriter intend to do better with keeping track! My list of good intentions may lead me to you know where!!
    lunar glide i did not know that word. I had heard it maybe and thought it had a 'foul' sound. I think I could work that into a poem, perhaps as a metaphor for the fever we have when falling for someone in the initial stages... it takes us over... a fever... infects our body and our brain... goes to the heart... fear 'kill' us??? Where is the antidote??? This is how i am inspired..... thank you!!! love you kids!!

    Agreed on that LG - fastigium is another one I'd not heard yet - have you worked it into a poem yet?

    fastigium is one for me. it just seems like it ought to have a more attractive meaning.

    Well, sad to say, as much as I love to learn new words - I sometimes have to 're-learn' them if they've been out of use for awhile. Once in awhile I learned them as used incorrectly to begin with, and then have difficulty shaking my misunderstanding. But I can safely say that the vast of majority of new words I've heard from poets here in the zone are all NEW - and I love it! I intended to keep a list back in April when I started, but then got side tracked. Perhaps this 'new year resolution' idea could start me off on that track again?

    Thank you RhymeLovingWriter insouciance is a word i love to say out loud!! i like to repeat it over and over again. i wish the meaning were different. To my ear it ought to mean something altogether different! i first heard it in college... yes a mighty long time ago!! Funny, when I looked it up i was terribly disappointed!! Has that ever happened to you?? anyone else?

    Lovely to the ear Suz-zen - and I too learned a couple of new words - lambent and insouciance.

    Lovely insecurity, Suz-zen! It is beautifully crafted.

    grant hayes much thanks for teaching me so many words! I now add lambent to my list ... i realize i may not have used it in typical fashion. Your use in the comment section to describe the poem by lunar glide was most probably better. And anyone reading this who perhaps has not visited THAT please do!

    Thank you for the thumbs up Grant.

    thank you Bobby. Wrote this after midnight. almost had forgotten I had posted it as i went to bed right after. I had looked up yet another grant hayes word as i always do when I come across a new one and out of me came this. though grant says no collaboration it truly is. without him this would not exist. I say thank you to him.

    Suz-zen, your use of repetition and mirroring here is so skilful. Such a simple palette; such subtle artistry!
