The word for this week is zephyr [zef-er], a noun meaning "a gentle, mild breeze". I like the way this word sounds -- and also the way it looks. (Is that strange?) I think of it as a "springy" word and since we've been having some spring weather recently (finally), I thought it would be a good word to share.
Here are a few example sentences:
A spring zephyr blew through the meadow,
rippling the tall grasses in gentle waves.
Digging in the garden, I appreciated the balance
between the warmth of the sun on my head
and the hint of a zephyr that cooled me.
How would you use the word zephyr? Are there any words that you like because of their sound or look? I'd love to hear about them!
