Word of the Day
Tuesday, February, 27, 2007
Plume (noun) – A feather (usually a large, fancy one for ornamentation) or cluster of feathers for ornamentation or to signify rank or importance; also a structure or form that is featherlike such as a plume of smoke; as a transitive verb the word means to decorate with plumes; or, when speaking about birds, it means to smooth or preen feathers (from Middle English and Old French) (if you want to talk about a small feather, you call it a plumelet)

Word in a Sentence: In my novel Choices Meant for Gods, when Nigel and Henry go to Bellan, they are practically overrun by ladies bedecked in plumes of various colors and sizes.

Your turn! What decorative sentences do you have in you today?

“Some days, you just want the dragon to win.”

Some nights, I sit here, face to face with the computer screen and a blank document before me trying to pen a phrase or article of some type and the only thing I see is the little plume of smoke from the ever-present nicotine feeding my addiction that much more.
