Momentous

 

Over at Ruth’s blog, every Wednesday she’s choosing a word to inspire her post for that day. She’s issued an open invitation for others to join in with her Wednesday Word, either in the comments or with a pingback to your own post.

[I had something in mind but it’s fallen away while I took a look at the word, it’s meaning, snonyms and antonyms and then somehow otherwise distracted… I finally removed the dolphin background that was supposed to psychologically invoke healing(!) but may have caused avoidance. I still like the Sorbet theme, but I might go for a change, at some point…]

…back to the Wednesday Word prompt:

MOMENTOUS – in Chinese, according to the google translation, is shown as:  重大

In a while, to-do lists will have no place;

alarm bells will not ring; monuments will crumble and fall.

The earth will not choke within the smog of man’s industry.

Humankind leaving little trace, all words expressed in vain.

 Momentous, Nature, portentous, returns.

~~~

Apparently in Welsh, momentous translates as pwysig; in Indonesian it’s sungguh-sungguh; and in Swahili, it’s nzito … but, of course, regarding translation, I’m just taking google’s word for it …

I also tried a few haiku, but most have incorporated directly or by theme into the poem above. That leaves this one – but you have to not be lazy with ‘ev-er-y’ , as usually, when spoken, at least colloquially by common English people like myself, it sounds 2 syllables and this one has to sound 3 to count:

Momentous mundane
as every day passes
by night into morn.

If you haven’t already, stop by and check out Ruth’s poem for her Wednesday Word – and her previous posts too – and hopefully I’ll be dropping by to read your own momentous posts sometime soon 🙂

      1. Took me ages to realise that in many themes you can change the background, either with pic/pattern or by choosing your own colour 🙂 I like the surprises with your fairly regular theme tweaks – I tend to get with things one way and then reluctant to change anything. Maybe I should take a leaf out of your book and once a month or so try on a new blog-suit 🙂
