Wordy Wednesday!


This weeks Wordy Wednesday word is;

Coruscate


- To emit flashes of light
- To scintillate, gleam or glimmer
- To sparkle or flash
- Glitter

This word originated from Latin roughly C18, from the word coruscare which meant to flash or vibrate.

'Slowly he extended one arm, reaching towards the strange coruscating orb. There was something about it that caught his attention and held it, and he found himself strangely unable to look away.'


Challenge;

Comment a short piece of prose, flash fiction, or even just a sentence, using this word. It would be great to see what you come up with!
