Are we supposed to use it in a sentance, or add another word?

How about this one: majuscule:n a large letter (as a capital)

susurrus: a whispering or rustling sound.

listen to the susurrus, it is the sand in the hourglass of our mortality, trickling away and reminding us that our time on earth is limited, and will soon pass away.

Hows that for morbid 'off the cuff' poetry?
