Word of the Day — Whisper

WhisperOkay, so most of you are probably wondering why we are going with such a basic word.  Whisper.  The whisper of a kitten’s whiskers.  A whispering sigh.  “Why do you whisper green grass”, The Ink Spots.  A word that can hold so much in it’s meaning, yet it’s such a quiet word. It hardly says or does anything, but it means so very much.

whisper     verb \ˈhwis-pər, ˈwis-\

: to speak very softly or quietly

: to produce a quiet sound

OR

noun

: a very soft and quiet way of speaking

: a soft and quiet sound

: a very small amount of something

I think I use verb and noun equally.  I use this word all the time in poetry, especially if there is soft movement or a breeze.  It’s a delicate word that floats off your tongue and tastes like ice crystals.  Yes! Words have taste.

Want to see how much I use whisper?  Go to the main homepage of Kate’s Bookshelf and in the search box at the top, type in ‘whisper’.  You will see how much I love using that word.
