The Word of the Month word for July is . . .

Hi everyone,

You may have heard that I’m out for a while goo foffing. But lest you think I’m derelict in my duties, here’s my pick from your grand suggestions to keep us writing during July. The word is SHADE. So be cool and share the results.

And stand by to see many other words from the list in months to come. Waste not, want not!

  1. Shade

    Not the shadow, but the good of it,
    cool poured down, light as the touch
    of mother’s hand on your fever.

    Not heavy shading of an artist’s brush,
    but the brief wash of air
    across your eyelids, down your cheeks.

    Not the shad, a lure to the fisherman,
    but the moist of a summer’s water
    after a spit of rain.
