      the worthless word for the day is: seiche

      [F. seiche, to sway back and forth] /saysh/
      a standing wave that oscillates in an enclosed
      body of water, such as a lake, bay or gulf

      "An insignificant, tiny, harmless thing, this seiche,
      it would seem — a motion as slight as the swaying of
      grass in the wind or the twitching of an aspen leaf.
      But again and again has the world suffered sorely
      from being blind to powers hidden in small things."
      - W. Sherwood Fox, The Bruce Beckons (1988)
