To indulge in torpor
would not be a bore
or feel like a chore
even if the floor
held you in torpor.

Every week I rhyme and define a new wacky word.
Come on over to indulge your inner nerd.
And, please let me know of any weird words you've heard.

  3. This was wonderful - I'm renaming you as Shelley Suess as your work reminds me of Shel Silverstein and Dr. Suess! Loved this!

    1. THANK YOU Buddah! :) I love that nickname. It's not really one you can give yourself without sounding conceited, but you can't argue with Buddah, right? :)

  4. Hi Rachel, your poetry certainly doesn't induce a torpor, I've always associated this with apathy, like your definition better :-)

    1. Hi Sara,

      Apathy is an accurate definition as well. It just seemed to imply more to me... like a weight that leaves you stuck to the ground. :)

Rhyming or not, I would like a lot to hear the thoughts my words brought...
