the word

…this week the words came from Kim in the Peppermint Creek Collective’s Scavenger Hunt Challenge…………

I created the following tale & treasury inspired by and written using Kim’s wonderful 15 chosen words:

shadow, word, allure, fiber, soul, natural , reflection, black, bold, paper, wing, pearl, geometric, secret, metal

….can you find where each word is embedded in the tale?……..

“the word”

it was her secret
she was never
quite sure
how it happened
but it always began
at midnight


she felt
it’s allure
deep within
her dreams
boldly beckoning
her to wake


upon entering
the library
as the clock
began to toll
she always found
an odd geometric


on the empty page
of an ancient manuscript
the rough texture
of the natural fiber of the paper
reflecting the dark soul
of the night


and when
the clock’s
rang out
she felt a
whisper of wind
as if an angel
passed by in flight
its wings a shimmer
of pearly white


and then a subtle
scratching sound
as if a metal quill tip
touched down
upon the page
and the black shadow
a single


on the page….
