Say It To Me
1. The downy, yellow, sometimes rosy fruit, somewhat resembling a small peach, of the tree Prunus Armeniaca.
2. The tree itself.
3. Also called wild apricot.
i love harsh/soft syllable combinations. it's a very languid (yet another sexy word) sound, the soft 'p' of the second syllable sending a soft gust of air to whatever body part it is said near, the soft 't' of the last syllable slipping off your tongue very smoothly.
not only that, the word 'apricot' puts me in mind of hazy summer afternoons, the soft light and scent of jasmine and bushfire smoke of an evening, the nectar running down your hands as you eat one, and the delicate lace and silk slips one could wear in such weather.
lastly, the third definition is 'wild apricot', which makes me think of the above, however in a forest. perhaps with girls in floaty dresses, feeding each other fruit salad of wild apricots, maybe?
just a thought.
