Beautiful Words (J, K)

When I call a word beautiful, sometimes it refers to the meaning behind the word. Sometimes it refers to how the word sounds as it rolls over the tongue.

 I just could not find any words that struck a cord in me starting with J or K. Especially K which I know can be such a pretty sound. I’m going to have to go through again and find more words.

Jasmine: (n) a climbing plant; fragrant flowers

Jaunt: (n/v) short excursion for pleasure, brief stay

Javelin: (n) a throwing spear, athletic sport event

Jejune: (adj) naïve, juvenile, simplistic, uninteresting, superficial

Juniper: (n) evergreen tree

Kalon: (n) beauty that is more than skin deep

Kaleidoscope: (n) optical item that utilizes mirrors to create interior symmetrical visions

Kismet: (n) fate, fortune, chance, faith thereof
