BRIEF: Pick a word, the more obscure the better, and then write a six line verse that includes it.

hardihood
/ˈhɑːdɪhʊd/
noun: dated

boldness; daring

The                                                                              Moment

strength misplaced, leached wood, cross walls
hardihood apparent by an absence, called away
as clock clicks, nameless hum abates, in a space
confidence vacates, arrogance adheres, falls
hardly stained, crumpled, intensive corrosion
reminder not ever enough, the broken, moment
