Seeded and Watered

Growth Potential

Yet willy-nilly not
lay thy crumb, thus
appreciated, puzzling  
rhyming riddles

Motion through action
reciprocal conjunction
like-minded: perhaps
often not

Lively synchrony
born of possibility
seeded in reasoning’s  
musical symphony

Polyphonic rousing
call and response
neural burst firing
connection continuity


For All Time: Storytelling (Poem)

We’re seldom first to notice—
rare to be first at anything

Still will be those who’ve not noted
who ought to know a story  

Full circles may mingle  
perhaps never meet

Bouncy-wall bubbles
may not relate

Thus, value to accounts
tales of survival  

Traumas of people
emergent from struggle   

Poems & Poetic Prose

One-Liner Wednesday + Life Poetic “Word of the Day”

Sedulity (in an inspirational nutshell):

Our toys could hurt us and investments might disappoint, but we continue to build upon positive reward through sedulity.


A bit about usage:

While a writer might be interested in use of the word “sedulity” or any of its forms in their narratives or subject matters, they probably wouldn’t use it anywhere else.

Along that vein, a writer who’s writing web content (esp. editor) isn’t likely to use any form of this term, for various reasons—especially in titles and tags. Instead, they would use more common synonyms, such as diligence.

Do what you like, of course.

Forms of the term sedulity:

Sedulous people are not the sedate or sedentary sort. They’re the hardworking types Scottish author Samuel Smiles must have had in mind when he wrote in his 1859 book Self-Help, “Sedulous attention and painstaking industry always mark the true worker.”
