Saturday Word of the Day: Pulverulent

*Pulverulent: covered with dust or powder 

The great library was a mess, shelves were pulverulent as was the floor. Books laid strewn across the floor and desks, glass shards glittering amongst them.

And then there was the scrolls, tattered and torn beyond repair. The tapestries that graced the walls were all ripped or had dropped to the floor and crumpled.

What a shame it was that in the earthquake it had all been forgotten. Centuries worth of history destroyed in minutes, only a few small tomes salvageable in their neglected state.
