Isn’t the word thingy a marvelous word
A noun that describes everything
From a person, an object or even a place
With a ‘je ne sais pas’ sort of ring
For the thingy’s a thing that could be anything
Yet a thing that by all things defined
Is a thingy – you know – a thingy, thing thing
When the name escapes recall and mind!
So let’s hear it for thingies all over the world
The nonsense we utter when words
Evade definition, instead being known
As a thingy – so quaint and absurd!
A friend just posted about the perils of long legs and insufficient room on buses using the phrase “long prongs”. That got me thinking about how many ways we have developed for saying the same thing especially as our family do “long legs” big time!

If I didn’t write, would you miss me at all?
Or am I merely letters on a page?
Words in the ether
Phrases; lyrics; verses
Call them what you may?
Am I simply these or am I meaning?
Music to your ears?
Poetry to the heart?
Tugging at the life strings
That join us together
Uniting us in universal concord
Resonating through the years
In stanzas of contemplation
Musings married in a scripts of thoughts
That wax and wane on the tides of ink
