I agree with Karen that the word beautiful is overused, as a person can use the word to describe many things. Living things, sceneries, and in romance, to describe the feeling you feel towards a spouse or lover. I myself, use the words to describe the world often.

So then I went to shimmer. I love the onomatopoeia. Shimmer is shimmer. It is what it is, and the word can cast a quality of light or lightness of being over the whole area where it is placed. It’s a light that carries within it many layers of shimmering worlds.

I love contronyms because the tensions between their meanings are ideal for the ambidexterity I prize in poetry. Refrain, of course, means both to cease and to repeat; thus it conjures silence and song, revulsion and desire. It’s a mess of potential, relying on the attendant context of the poem to ravel.

Words are like musical notes for me, it depends what they do with others. And I love what a cold, even inert word can do in the right place. Robert Hayden ends his great “Those Winter Sundays” with “What did I know, what did I know/ Of love’s austere and lonely offices?” The word offices . . . so penetrating and unexpected. It’s like the disappearing weapon in the old-time murder mystery, with the victim stabbed through the heart with an icicle.

One of my favorite words is island. I like how, if you look at it closely, it contains the essential question to ask as it starts to appear over the horizon: “is land?” And how spoken aloud it sounds like what you would say stepping off the boat and onto its shore. And I adore the definition of it in Merriam-Webster: “A tract of land surrounded by water and smaller than a continent.” That seems both very accurate and also generous.

Paragraph 46, Sentence 1 0
No sentence-level conversations. Start one.

There are certain words with meanings that my mind insists on inverting or bending in some way. For example, my first impulse is to associate the word hoi polloi with a kind of upper class snobbery. Maybe it’s something specific to the way my mind works. It could also be that the general usage of the word and its etymological past really are at odds, and I’m just caught in the crossfire. Either way the tension is interesting. Nonplussed is another one I want to flip.
