Hello there all you happy people.

I've been receiving the 'Word of the Day', from
Dictionary.com for awhile now, and I've saved a good
portion of the words and definitions, thinking that
I would use them in a poem 'later'.
Well, I think it's later now. LOL.
I've decided to start sharing a few with you on a
regular basis, to see what you can do with them.
The challenge is simply to choose one or more of
the words and use it/them in a poem.  If you decide
to use more than one word, then you may either use them
all in the same poem or write a seperate poem for each word.
So, here's the first word list...


pukka, also pucka \PUHK-uh\,
adjective:
   1. Authentic; genuine.
   2. Good of its kind; first-class

tenebrous \TEN-uh-bruhs\,
adjective:
   Dark; gloomy.

palimpsest \PAL-imp-sest\,
noun:
   1. A  manuscript,  usually  of papyrus or parchment, on which
   more  than  one text has been written with the earlier writing
   incompletely erased and still visible.
   2. An  object  or  place  whose  older  layers or aspects are
   apparent beneath its surface

soporific \sop-uh-RIF-ik; soh-puh-\, adjective:
   1. Causing sleep; tending to cause sleep.
   2. Of,  relating  to,  or  characterized  by  sleepiness or lethargy

gimcrack \JIM-krak\,
noun:
   A showy but useless or worthless object; a gewgaw.
adjective:
   Tastelessly showy; cheap; gaudy


And, there you have it.  Now, go write and have fun!

Oooh ooh, can I use "ords"?

No, on second thought, let's not go to Camelot.
