Writing Prompt
Ladies and Gentlemen (and all other members to whom these monikers may not apply!): it's time once again for the Obscure Word 7-9-7! Find a word that truly exists but that, for some reason or another, has been out of the mainstream -- and bring it back for us! ;) Or it can be a new one that has wormed its way into the younger vocabulary enough to be put into the Urban Dictionary!! ;) Your choice!

Your poem should be of the format:

First Line -- 7 syllables
Second Line -- 9 syllables
Third Line -- 7 syllables

It should highlight/explain/define an obscure word** for us and really make us want to use it the next time we compose an offering whether it be prose or poetry! :) Remember, keep it mostly clean (know that's difficult for some of you out there, but it IS only 23 syllables so I'm sure you can manage it!) and impress us! :-) :-)

BE SURE to include a COMPLETE definition of your obscure word** in your author notes. Make it fun, make it intriguing, but, most of all, make us want to vote for yours!! LET THE OBSCURITY BEGIN!! :)

**Due to their over-appearance in previous contests, the following words are hereby OFF-LIMITS:
Crapulence
Huckmuck
Gwenders
Panglossian
Kerfuffle

Recognized

Author Notes
peristeronic - [pe-ris-ter-ron-ic] related to or concerned with pigeons.
