Wondrous Words Wednesday

wordyweds

Wondrous Word Wednesday is hosted by Kathy of BermudaOnion

I take two words from poem Missive #2 from At the Threshold of Alchemy by John Amen.

Missive #2

"My marathon days are now a matter of recoed
with the proper Goliaths. I agree, red is ecumenical.
God hath blessed our hunches. I promise to adore
this saccharine pill. Oh, you and your rectitude.
I remain unimpressed with the snake-handling constituency,
though I do, Ms. Clean, pity your concupiscent daughter."

1). Ecumenical:

adj.

  1. Of worldwide scope or applicability; universal.
    1. Of or relating to the worldwide Christian church.
    2. Concerned with establishing or promoting unity among churches or religions.
2). Concupiscent

n.

A strong desire, especially sexual desire; lust.

I love new words. I keep a new words list at the back of my journal. The hardest part is making them mine, using them.

Concupiscent is a new one for me. I don't think I'll be using it in a sentence any time soon, though. Thanks for participating today!

I have always liked concupiscent because it seems like a word that sounds like its meaning so perfectly!

I've always loved the word ecumenical because of it's meaning. It just sounds all encompassing. I like that you shared the new words from a poem. Beautiful.
