Iridiscent by KM #atozchallenge

I-A

Isn’t that a lovely word? As I was looking around in my mind and

memory for words/characters/titles beginning with ‘I’, this word kept

coming back to me. One dictionary defines it as “showing luminous

colours that seem to change when seen from different angles”. No

wonder it sounds so lovely. The accompanying photo (taken from

the Internet, no copyright Infringement Intended) shows an iridescent

ammonite fossil.

I also composed a poem for this post:

I SENT TEN CENTS;

SCENT, TINS, RICE, RENTS.

DICE, DINE, SIT, REST.

IT IS IRIS’ NEST.

I STIR, I TEND.

IS IT NICE? IS IT END?

Imaginative? Infantile? Impossible to understand? Surely you see why I

wrote this poem for this post after that introduction? Every word from the

poem is made with letters found in the word ‘iridescent’. What’s that? It

doesn’t make sense? Oh, come on. Be Inventive. Use your Imagination.

“I” did!

KM is my friend and reclusive writer who loves sharing her words but not her identity. Her blog Tithi Katha (translated as, ‘Tithi’s Tales’) is a treasure trove of her life experiences and vivid imagination. So, this April, the social media friendly me is going to share with you, every Thursday, KM’s writing. So stay tuned for more. Previous Thursday was spent Looking at the C-ilver Screen.
