I can’t explain why it’s my favorite word. It’s something to do with how romantic it sounds and all the connotations it holds, both good and bad. It’s animalistic and peaceful. It’s simple and loaded with meaning. It’s perfect. Say it and listen to it’s beauty: unfurl. What’s your favorite word?
Today was certainly a Monday. Unfurl a little tonight.

Too indecisive to pick one, but a few faves are: myriad, superfluous, and aardvark
All excellent choices.
Apparently I like the word unfurl as well, fellow St. Charlesian! I searched my blogs, and including unpublished drafts and private posts, I’ve used the word in 16 of my posts!
“Did something happen by the way?” Is what I almost asked as I misread the line about the cast too quickly. That would have been awkward! lol
St. Charlesian, I like that. Unfurl is a great word. I support it’s prevalence in your writing! Also, I’m sure you’re not the only one that has misread poetry. In fact, it’s probably common! Cheers!
One of my favorites as well-
Nearly used it in a poem tonight but it didnt end up fitting…
One of these days it will. Believe me, I take great care in where I use my favorite words!
Ochre, celestial, sapphire, ruby, coracle, ladle are some of the words I like. Happy New Year.

I love this! And unfurl is also one of my very favorites. So much promise packed in one little word….
