5 Word Challenge – Worship

This is how it works: you get 5 words and with these 5 words you have to write an entry. The words might or might not be related. You decide how to combine them, and how long your entry will be. You tag your entry with 5wordchallenge and whatever other tags you like. Finally, you put the words in bold.

This week’s challenge: obsequious, striation, tyro, eleemosynary, prophylaxis

In one week the challenge will be passed on to someone that participated in this one, hosted by Holly

Prophylaxis of the mind is sought
By the theology of eleemosynary.
A tyro would assume
An obsequious position
The striation of whip and lash.

I would seek eleemosynary
Elsewhere.

A learning curve in words today:

Phrophylaxis – action taken to prevent disease, esp. by specified means or against a specified disease
Eleemosynary – of, relating to, or dependent on charity; charitable
Tyro – a beginner or novice
Obsequious – obedient or attentive to an excessive or servile degree
Striation – any of a number of tiny parallel grooves such as: the scratches left by a glacier on rocks or the streaks or ridges in muscle tissue

    Thank you both. I must admit, I looked at these words and thought "Shit. Where's the dictionary!"

  4. Red Pen says:

    Very good, Bookmole. I tried to comment in the group and could not – maybe your 'allow group comments' isn't checked?

  5. Holly says:

    Amazing. And your tags are a riot. 😉 Yes, it was hard – and you made even more of a challenge for yourself here, didn't you?

    Thank you – corrected it now.
