This week the wonderful words came from Tiffany Dawn Smith in the 27th Peppermint Creek Collective’s Scavenger Hunt Game….

Here’s Tiffany’s wonderful 15 chosen words: pastel, dress, beautiful, spring, birth, vacation, music, girl, drink, animal, paper, bliss, drama, egg, strength ….

….and here’s my treasury and tale inspired by and written using all of her words….
………………………………….can you find where they are located in this tiny snippet of a tale?


her birthday fell
on a beautiful spring day
as the drama
of the harsh winter
that made the newspaper headlines
and its palette of pastels
began to fade away


the bright brilliance
of flower buds
and robin blue eggs
dressed the woods
in all it’s finery


baby animals
at their mother’s side
announced the blissful
arrival of new life
all across
the newborn land


she felt
a surge of strength
a sense of renewal
as if she had tasted a drink
of the power
of her Aries sign
and with the music
blasting on the radio
without a destination in mind


she headed off
on a spontaneous vacation
a girl on a road trip
without a plan….
