A Poem by Cherrie Palmer

I wrote a poem the day titled "The Bevy".

I have always loved the sound and feel this word has and I was surprised I had never used it.
So this is my challenge to you: pick a word you love and make it sing or dance across the page in a poem:)

In times past the word 'ectoplasm' stood out, although it could hardly be called a favoured word. Bevy, on the other hand, now that is a word! But also hard to use in poetry, perhaps a challenge. A worthy stir up to any poet's nest. Thanks for sharing, Cherrie. /Frederick.

🍃 will do, Ms. Cherrie. Thank you.
Keyword, "Akimbo"

I was in limbo but stood akimbo as a symbol.
Why? I do not know.
It has taken such a toll
on my soul. Don't you know?
I will go, while standing on the ship's deck,
All akimbo. --- JE Falcon :)

:) to cute I like it.
Not so sure this sings or dances. More like a thud. But these are some of my favorite words. I could do this all day. I like susurrant too.

Egregious acts pass
through fluxes and fugues of self
waxing waning hope

Not sure why egregious is my fav word. Thanks for letting me write it!
