the olive grove

I love to take a pile of words, chosen by another:

olive,
free, lucky,
gift, new, clover,
wood, trust, rock, glass,
blessing, salmon, three, spice, chocolate

…………..once I have the 15 words
…………………….I use them as building blocks to create a snippet of a story…

………..the above 15 choice ones were chosen by Amy
……………………..for the 20th Peppermint Collective Scavenger Hunt

…these lovely words inspired my below treasury & story…….

……………………..can you find where each word is located within it?…..

“the olive grove”

she would spice up her afternoon
by wandering freely through
the sunny ancient olive grove
along its well worn earthen paths
created long before Roman times

on each walk she
could always trust
to find something new
a lucky talisman or two
sometimes three

OG1

gifts discovered
in clumps of clover
and the knee high summer grass

a faded salmon colored
bubbly glass bottle
hand blown
and still intact

she imagined
its skillful creation
amidst the sweat and the heat
of the flame

OG2

a fragment of carved stone
quarried centuries ago
from solid travertine

she marveled at it’s beauty
and endurance
the empire rose and fell
but the rock
still remained

OG3

a rosary delicately carved
from chocolate colored wood
worn with the blessings through time

she hoped it had brought peace
in hard times of famine, plague
and war

OG4

but most of all she wondered
if she would leave trinkets behind herself
treasures for others to discover
and wonder about in
the years to come
