Today’s Daily Create Prompt– #clmooc #DS106  @ds106dc   #tdc3963 is to share the Longest Word in any language. So I chose a word of the wee world from my #NaNoWriMo novel, So Says the Moonstream

Longest Word in the wee world is Leowgethow and is pronounced lee—oh—geth’—oh. Though it seems like a short word, the English Translation from the fairy tongue, which is mostly always in song is:

Leowgethow, in English
“Let the light flow like a river and follow its glow
To lighten your heart and live love through woe
To enlighten your mind and welcome all so
Together in peace, life forever will flow.”

Sheri Edwards
Sung by the Red Fern Fairy
in So Says the Moonstream
NaNoWriMo 2022

Since 2011 I’ve been writing 50,000 words of a novel each November for NaNoWriMo [National Novel Writing Month]. Since 2011 until this very day, the 19th of November at 4:15 PM, I’ve recorded 641,764 total words. That’s a lot of words. Profiles are private so I grabbed a screenshot of my profile just now.

In the header is an image that is as inspiring today as it was back in 2011– and it is the wallpaper on my iMac too– inspiring me all year long, even though the tree on the far right and and the two skinny trees in the middle are no longer there in Cole Park. Still the autumn and summer canopy of pine, maple, locust, and lilac are a refreshing calm that surely must invite the fairies of the other worlds to visit. And so, this park and this scene is always part of my stories every year– all science fantasy. This years is more fantasy than science, although the technology is catching up.

And so for the Daily Create today I share the longest wee world word and its translation– the poem song, with the image of the wee one, the red fern fairy, singing her song in the red fern fronds to remind us that love will see us through to, in, and with continuing peace to solve the world’s problems together. Just follow the light of love.
