Emma's Word of the Day

by Emma Datson 23 days ago in list

Number 1, June 2021

I have done "Word of the Day" on Facebook for almost 10 years and I have decided to start sharing my words of the day with you now.

I do "Word of the Day" because I am a word nerd. Words have always been so powerful to me, the way you create rhythm with them, or just the simple beauty of some words and their meanings. My words of the day are a mix of my favourite words, new words I come across while reading, and golden oldies. I can't help myself, some words deserve more than one round.

I am presenting this here in poets in the hope that one of my words may provide you the inspiration you need. Words, after all, are what poets use to create their art, so the more words you know the better. Well, that's what I think anyway. I hope some of you agree.

I try to do my word of the day daily, but sometimes life happens, so these posts will present what I managed to do in the previous month. This is my very first time doing this, I hope you enjoy them.

I present to you my June 2021 words of the day.

(Please note I use Australian spelling as I am Australian.)
