I tried to find that word
illuminous
but couldn’t track it down
A mythical unicorn
its horn shrouded
in semantic myst
Eliminated
I was
illuminated
by electric lights
and knowledge
Shining spears
lighting dark
dark
corners
And once having
been illuminated
or illustratus
as the dictionary
would have me
believe
I decided to share
what I’d learnt
Becoming voluminously
luminous
glowing bright
shining
shining
shining
Yet even as I
clarified
elucidated
illuminated
the absence of this word
I got to thinking
Illuminous
illuminous
illuminous
Knowing what it meant
for me
And wondering
“Do you?”
Please enlighten me
