Interesting to contemplate the difference in meanings of the same word.
Here we have a butterfly poised on a flower.
We say a young lady with good social graces has poise.
In both cases, we can see the shared idea of balance which you find if you look up the definition.
Both words have the root meaning of 'weigh', 'ponder'.
I love words.
Especially ones that sound good when spoken.
But they also have to have a good meaning.
Like these: symphony, delicious, magical, ridiculous, besotted, sparkly, tickle, camisole, roundabout, fuzzy, Lake Wononscopomac.
