Blogging From A-Z Challenge: ‘W’

We are in the last week now of the wonderful Blogging From A-Z Challenge which brings us to the letter ‘W.’ This is a bit of a misnomer really as it resembles two ‘v’s rather than two ‘u’s! It is quite a broad and welcoming letter. The wise elder statesman of letters. However, the word I have chosen is perhaps more in the wacky and wild category……. I give you

Whirligig! I love even the sound of this word. It is whizzing around wildly, washing twirling and whirling around in the breeze. Frenzied spinning  around and around spiralling out of control almost.

It pirouettes, daintily, then gathering speed until it is gyrating like a whirling dervish, with robes forming huge circles as they gather pace!

I feel giddy just thinking about this word!

  1. How would this word fare out in the case of Keira Knightley in Anna Karenina, when she’s dancing drunkenly for the first time with her lover?

      1. No. I looked up and watched the dancing scene you referred to, I think whirligig was a perfect word for this. The twirling round and round faster and faster, the dress itself and the way it splays out when she dances.
