RDP — Venation

I saw that today’s Ragtag Daily Prompt word is “venation.” Having never heard of that word, I had to look it up. It is defined as “the arrangement of veins, as in a leaf or in the wing of an insect.” Who knew?

Okay, so after learning what “venation” means, the task at hand was to incorporate a word I’d never heard of before and had certainly never used before into a post. And for those reasons, my initial inclination was to take a pass on using that word.

Then, this morning, I went into my backyard to have a cup of coffee and I looked up and saw this in the sky…

And I thought, Hey, those clouds up there are showing some really interesting venation.

Well, I don’t know if those clouds resemble the veins of a leaf or an insect’s wings, but close enough. That’s my story and I’m sticking with it.

    Awesome! I think you have captured a kind of venation not many others will find!

    Not contribute to my word. Oh Fandango I would be sure you would find something and did not disappoint with a wonderful photo. Thanks for joining in 🙂 🙂

    It’s a well-thought-out story. We need to be aware of trends, and maybe we’ll be able to do something about them. I was going to say something like that conservatives — but slash that — reactionaries (which is what the most powerful so-called conservatives have been) won the week with anti freedom Supreme Court decisions. I might find stories on that later, although I’m sure you saw those news reports yourself, Fandango. For now, I’ll just include more signs of bad portends,

      This one is, I think, because of an older Spreme Court decision (allowing eminent domain for private purposes).
