「[和む]{なごむ}」is a word that you can hear in everyday conversation? Or just in poems or songs?

和む can be safely used in conversations just like other simple wago. You may say 和んだ while you are at an animal cafe or enjoying a 日常系 ("slice-of-life") manga/anime, for example. Some people are too busy to use it in "everyday" conversations, but that's another story.

  • You can also see it not too rarely in advertisements ad well as articles/books related to relaxation. Like Naruto said, it’s not used by everybody, but it can be used safely. – Halfway Dillitante Dec 11 '19 at 4:37
