Pronunciation: /ˈsʌɪnəʃʊə/ /ˈsɪnəʃʊə/ /ˈsʌɪnəzjʊə/ /ˈsɪnəzjʊə/
A person or thing that is the centre of attention or admiration: Kirk was the cynosure of all eyes
Late 16th century: from French, or from Latin cynosura, from Greek kunosoura 'dog's tail' (also 'Ursa Minor'), from kuōn, kun- 'dog' + oura 'tail'. The term originally denoted the constellation Ursa Minor, or the pole star which it contains, long used as a guide by navigators.
The market slid, slipped and then crashed.
Stock sold slow; few with scant profits cashed.
We were really in a pickle.
Investors dwindled to a trickle.
With high hopes grand we did procure
New VC angel, our cynosure
He is our guide out of despair,
Charismatic, handsome debonair.
This time next year we'll shout and cheer.
Our new product, goals, direction clear.
No shady deals will we involve.
"Tim Terrific" will all problems solve.
Words are a game. Sometimes I play alone, but I encourage YOU to play, too.
