Five words May – Yr 3: Thursday’s Special

Each month Paula gives us five words that we can use as we like. We can choose one word and post a photo demonstrating it or all five. It is entirely up to you. You can even choose five words and display one photo decpicting the lot. I have only managed to do that once. The five words this month are iconic, propagation, cleaved, zoomorphic, and marginal.

Iconic

Two iconic structures that most recognise as icons of Sydney are the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Here are some views that are not as often seen as the iconic view the world knows.

The mid Atlantic ridge is above the ground in Iceland where most of it is found under the sea. It is a good example of a cleave  (split) along a divergent tectonic plate and forms the largest mountain range in the world.

This duck is cleaving its way through the water. Cleave is an interesting word. According to the dictionary there are two different cleaves and they mean almost the exact opposite – where one (which I have demonstrated) means to split and the other means to stick.

Zoomorphic

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.
