ABC Wednesday: K is for kilter

This goose was literally and figuratively off kilter. She was standing at the entrance to a shopping area honking at the top of her lungs, several miles from any of the lakes or golf courses where the geese usually hang out. I don't know if it was the cold snap, being out of her comfort zone or some other issue but she was well and truly off kilter.

Rocks and other ornamental features in landscaping are visually pleasing when they are slightly off kilter.

Bonjour Carver! Thanks for teaching me this new English word, I'm so concentrated in my French classes here,and I think I'm loosing a little bit my English.My mind is a little bit confused nowadays, maybe it's only a phase. So, I was searching more about this word and I'm happy learning here. Thanks so much!
These pictures are all beautiful, the cute critter posing for your camera and also the composition with stones and colorful flowers!
hugs

I love the word you used for K. That's how I feel sometimes..."Just a bit off kilter". ;0
Great K shots!

Reader Wil said...

Thank you for the new word! I had to look it up. I hope you are now in kilter. Your photos are very beautiful. Perhaps the goose was looking for its partner?

I love geese, they are so funny, but they can be such pains in the

Great post. Left me with a big smile!

I never thought of using that word - but geese do always stand off kilter.

What a great choice for K! It's hard to stay on an even keel, so I guess we all spend some time of our life 'off kilter'. Love the photo of the unhappy goose.

Well, I haven't heard "kilter" for a long time, and yet I live a little off kilter most of the time! HaHa

Great use of the letter "K"

Ann said...

May be her mates had flown to New Zealand. I don't usually use the word kilter, today I used kilt, may be men who wear kilts are out of kilter. LOL

Nydia said...

Oh gods, now I'm worried about this poor goose! :P
