The word “static” originates from the Greek word “Statlike” (to bring to standstill or a state of no movement). You can use derivatives such as staticalstaticallyelectrostatic or create an original hyphenation. Dabble with the effects of static in space, physics, nature, relationships, society or yourself,
with whatever definition you choose.

  • Provide a link to dVerse so others can find us too.

Kitten Petting

Rubbing my kitten to and fro,
We love each other; this I know.

She hunches her spine.
A soft motor-like purr.
She rolls her green eyes.
Kneading claws spur.
A static shock!
On wetted nose,
A spark of white light,

And off she goes!

      Awww… hope you’re not needing something. There’s an unwritten law that you can’t get up. 😉❤
