Word of the Day 06/05/15 Deliquesce

Deliquesce (verb)
deliquesce [del-i-kwes]

1. to become liquid by absorbing moisture from the air, as certain salts.
2. to melt away.
3. Botany. to form many small divisions or branches.

Origin: 1750-60; < Latin dēliquēscere to become liquid, equivalent to dē- de- + liquēscere; see liquescent

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.

I guess scheduled posting is still on the fritz since this was supposed to post about 3 hours ago.
