waiting for the snow

…this week the 15 words came from the wonderful shop PhotoClique for the Peppermint Creek Collective 22nd Scavenger Hunt Game…

…..here are the 15 wonderful chosen words: peaceful, introspective, intimate, luminous, delicate, woodsy, mood, gentle, solitude, sensitive, rustic, graceful, leaves, reflection, snow

…and here’s the story snippet that I wrote using the words. Can you find each word in the tale?

“waiting for the snow”

she took the week off
and headed to her favorite
woodsy hideaway
a rustic cottage
at the edge of the forest
for a week of solitude
for a time of intimate self reflection
and peaceful introspection
taking long naps
or long walks
sensitive to wherever her mood
wished to take her
in tune with the dance
of her internal rhythms

snow1

crunching the late fall
leaves underfoot
witnessing a graceful swan
gently unfold her great white wings
and take off in flight

all the while
waiting
waiting
and waiting
for the first
snow

snow 2

and on the
seventh day
at twilight
in the last
luminous
sparkles
of the
lingering
light
in a breathless
moment of stillness

snow3

the delicate
ethereal
flakes
drifted
floated
twirled
and
fell
descending from
the heavens
so
far
far
above
