I recently (Oct 23rd) created a post called “Tattered curtains” and posted it on my blog twilight73.wordpress.com. It was well accepted and almost a hundred individuals read it. One reader left a comment and called it poignant. Thanks Ann htt://annofgg.wordpress.com
Now poignant was in my word vocabulary but I had not used it in some time, so I Googled it to refresh my memory. This is what I found.
Poignant – Adjective. “Evoking a keen sense of sadness or regret.”
“A poignant reminder of the passing of time.”
Synonyms – touching, moving, sad, affecting, pitiful, piteous, pathetic, sorrowful, mournful, wretched, miserable, distressing, heart rendering, tear jerking, plaintive, tragic.
I now appreciate that poignant was the perfect word to express what I was attempting to create when I wrote “Tattered curtains.” It is a great word and I plan to express it in a couple of more posts in the near future.
