It’s April of 2022 and Day 20 of the A to Z challenge. This year, I am doing the theme – “Wordy Wonders.” I am selecting words that have deeper and graceful meanings, from across the globe and an eight-line poem along

Day 20 – Toska

Origin: Russian

Meaning: An ache for nothing and everything, all at once. The ache of the soul.


In bits and pieces, life,
Showed us nothing,
Made us ask every.
And then,
Told us every,
Is really nothing.
We are now
A toska doll!

And when we become a Toska doll, I recommend traveling. Travel and living the moments of nothingness. And nothing is really more supreme than a travel companion who is everything.

Word Pronunciation: tuh-skah
