After researching the word in the dictionary, I took up the thesaurus to get my foggy brain around the concept of saucy. Not only did I learn that the word can be applied to a variety of situations but that those "concept" numbers after the long list of words are there for a purpose. I actually followed up and discovered that saucy is considered a communicative quality as well as an attribute of behavior. With a list of synonyms as long as my arm to offer inspiration, I am good to go for an entire year of Saturdays.
The saucy words I chose for today, listed in the Concept Index under communicative qualities, are "genuine" and "indescribable." Both words, genuine - as in natural, and indescribable - beyond words, perfectly describe the ubiquitous Chinese Hibiscus flowers that illustrate my haiku below. I took this picture in Queen Kapiolani Park, near Waikiki, shortly after I moved to Hawaii. Each time I see these flowers, I can't help but smile back.
