(An A to Z 2014 Challenge entry)
A quagmire (noun) is a soft wet area of low-lying land that sinks underfoot.
I was originally going to write a poem about quicksand, but in my quest for another “Q” word, QUAGMIRE quickly required my attention in its purest quintessence. I can be quite sure that I was not aware of what quagmire meant before this letter challenge.
Have you learned any new words while doing any research for this challenge?
