Slow

Reena’s take on the word galumph, while at the cafe.

Reena Saxena

to sprint is human
to galumph divine
it earns me sympathy
as I get left behind

victory beyond goalposts
winks at my strategy
epiphany strikes
I write my own elegy

    A wonderful share, thank you.

    Fascinated as I am by word meanings I took a moment to look-up ‘galumph’ and was most delighted to discover it was a word coined by Lewis Carroll: probably a blend of gallop and triumph! 🙂

    Hoping all is well and your New Year progressing nicely. Take care 🙂

        Both in sound and meaning it certainly has great appeal: Lewis used the word ‘galumphing’ in his poem, Jabberwocky – when having slain the beast, the boy…

        “Left it dead, and with its head, he went galumphing back.”

        Such a word is called a ‘neologism,’ – a newly coined word or expression – which is in itself another fun word! 🙂

        Good to hear all is well. Enjoy a pleasant evening.

        Namaste 🙂

    • Thank you, Jacqui. I love tinkering with it and sometimes surprised my blog hasn’t fallen apart. 🙂 I love mountains, quaint mountain towns and coffee which fueled the appearance of my blog. It’s so good to hear from you.

  3. Eugenia,

    I do a lot of galumphing it seems and I didn’t even know it. The proof can be found on my shin all too often. 🙂 Nice share!
