Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub - Poetics:  There's a Word For That
(posted by Mish) - neologisms

"Choose 3 or more of the above words and include them in a poem of any style. You may want to use one of the words as your title and springboard off of it as a theme, but that is up to you. Besides the words in memes you can also choose from any words in bold type within this prompt. Are you ready to get a little wordy without sounding like a *sesquipedalian?"

*can be used to describe someone or something that overuses big words, like a philosophy professor or a chemistry textbook.

A belle âme, 
she was said 
to possess,
though not
an aliferous
being.  Her
querencia was
sand and ocean,
susurrus sound
that brought
her ease.  Here,
she found 
her true self.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
