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\,
1. Authentic; genuine.
2. Good of its kind; first-class
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
A showy but useless or worthless object; a gewgaw.
Tastelessly showy; cheap; gaudy
And, there you have it. Now, go write and have fun!
