one tiny twinkling star
in the dark night
makes all the difference
to the person navigating a journey
with nothing else to guide them.
Let your light so shine
it may be someone's
one tiny twinkling star.

"I look shockingly like Lou Ferrigno in the Incredible Hulk, except I'm not green, have no muscles, and am slightly shorter than him in this pic... but other than that... dead on."Let's see...
"Nosegay" is a homegrown word -- that is, it originated in English. Fifteenth-century Middle English speakers joined "nose" (which meant then what it does today) with "gay" (which at the time meant "ornament"). That makes "nosegay" an appropriate term for a bunch of flowers, which is indeed an ornament that appeals to the nose.Is it just the 7th grader coming out in me, or doesn't that still sound so enchanting and alluring?
