I’m taking part in the Alphabet Soup challenge, Hosted by Cathy Lynn Brooks. It has nothing to do with Soup. It was just a funny name  Cathy made up to explain an event that requires bloggers to use every letter of the alphabet in random order to inspire daily posting.

I cannot write about a word that does not exist or can I?

No, I can not.

So X will be for XENON something I know nothing about, hopefully by the time I have written this Pantoum poem I have learned something.
