The derelict way

I was taught in school that derelict also means a sunken ship. I became obsessed with words and tried to learn a new one every day. If accomplished, I felt I’d build a vocabulary so deep that I’d know something about anything. Last night, searching for a title for this photo, I stumbled upon the word again. Derelict’s other definition actually refers to a boat abandoned at high sea, a far more considerable circumstance. I’m left with the possibility that the more I search, the less I’ll realize I actually know.
