the place from which tales are told…

It is always so exciting to get a new set of 15 words…..

…this week the words were chosen by Elizabeth for the Peppermint Creek Collective 24th Scavenger Hunt Game.

Here’s Elizabeth’s wonderful 15 words: stillness, contemplative, horizon, natural, earthy, forest, mist, glow, twilight, tranquil, vintage, warmth, soft, contentment, relax

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

 

“the place from which tales are told”

as the golden glow of the sun
faded upon the horizon
and twilight softly fell
relaxing into stillness

she felt it’s pull

tales3

as the darkness of the night
filled with her with it’s tranquil peace

she sensed the secrets that it held

as the crackling fire
of her tiny vintage cottage
filled her with warmth and contentment

she was lured by the adventure that it promised

tales2

as she barely heard
the hoot
of a faraway owl
she knew she would soon be
irrevocably
immersed
in its irresistible spell

mesmerized
by a few glorious
random words
she became contemplative
as they beckoned her
to follow
wherever
they may
lead

tales1

and as her mind
began to wander
down earthy forested paths
and the magical mist
began to rise
she held her breath
for she knew
the natural progression
of events
had just begun

the scene had been set
and the story was ready unfold
for she had just arrived
at the place where
all the tales
are told

    I’m so in love with this whole idea!

    as she barely heard
    the hoot
    of a faraway owl
    she knew she would soon be
    irrevocably
    immersed
    in its irresistible spell

    I’m an English lit major and a songwriter, so my obsession with words is real. I love the way you weave yours together, and the way the words are given to you. Truly enchanting. Thanks for your stories!
