the masquerade

I love playing Etsy’s weekly Trendsetting Team’s Scavenger Hunt game!  The prior week’s winner provides 15 words + a shop, and the contestants create a treasury with an item from the shop and items/images from the Etsy website that match the 15 words.

…………I always love to take it one step further and write a snippet of a story, to accompany the treasury, using the 15 chosen words………………………………………

I wrote this story for the 64nd challenge using all of Carice’s wonderful 15 words: Cat, Costume, Hocus pocus, Jazz, Piano, Blues, Lucky, Lady, Cabaret, Dance, Shy, Mask, Good, Evil, Sympathy

Written using all of Carice’s wonderful 15 words….
the masquerade

the night was filled with magic,
on the eve of the masquerade
the strains of JAZZ and PIANO BLUES
drifted lazily in the air
luring them all down
to the downtown CABARARET
the DANCERS true intentions
the alley CATS screamed
and scattered as they came
they felt the darkness rising
a bit of HOCUS POCUS
was brewing bad


who held the hand of fate
was ready to show her hand
ready to seal the deal
this dark bleak night
without SYMPATHY
for the GOOD or for the EVIL
there was no SHYING away once
this spell was finally cast
