Wacky Word Wednesday - Apricate

One who apricates
thinks sunshine bates
a basking state
and always rates
a day as great
when warmth infiltrates.

Sunshine is the first mate
of one who apricates.

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.

  1. i had an apricate for breakfast...oh wait that is a cot...ha...hey i do like sunshine...smiles

    hey did you see you were one of the poets selected in the anniversary contest? we announced winners on monday at dverse.

    1. I hadn't seen and might have missed it because I thought all the winners had already been announced. Thanks for telling me! :)

  2. You mean it's NOT someone who appreciates and apricot? Who would have thought?

    1. Hehe. Nor is it someone who tries to pretend they like sitting in the sun, uses the wrong sunless tanner, and ends up looking like an apricot... :P


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