Word Scat

Drop words like scat –
an odorous trail,
mixed ramblings,
deterring detection –
from numinous
and life-affirming
to egregious and vile –
follow me if you can.

(Tuesdays I borrow from Twitter, @Vjknutson.)

  1. Now that’s a metaphor I’d never heard before–“scat” πŸ™‚ It leads me to think the words would be genuine, authentic, earthy, real–and that’s a good thing.

      1. That’s what I understood scat to mean, thus my list of adjectives πŸ™‚ Maybe I put too positive a spin on it? That would be rare for me, haha!

      2. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I do know what you mean about getting tired of your words…seems I get in a rut of repetitions…I should peruse my Giant dictionary, throw in some fresh (or antiquated) ones. Paul Lenzi was so great about enriching my vocabulary–and then it became a game, as I’d search for ones to try to stump him. Once in awhile I did, the highlight of my day πŸ™‚
