…this week the words came from Cristina in the Peppermint Creek Collective’s Scavenger Hunt Game…

….here’s Cristina’s wonderful 15 chosen words: gypsy, tribal, fringe, tassels, leafs, feather, organic, rust, warm, tea, cat, fireplace, wood, raw, wind

…………and here’s the story that I wrote using her chosen words…………..

“home”

it was a place
where she could truly rest
her restless wandering
gypsy feet
watching the flames
in the fireplace
reaching
shifting
swaying
glowing
listening
to the pop of wood
burning
as the raw wind raged
rattling the shutters
screeching the rusty hinges

h1

she felt safe inside
content
sipping tea
leafing through the pages
of her well worn journal
with the warm purr
of her cat on her lap
reaching out to playfully paw
a hanging tassel
watching a feather
drift in a draft
and roll over
and over
across the hardwood floor

h2

she had always danced on the fringes
of what was normal
and expected
in the everyday world
but here
she could simply
be

h3

she felt a wholeness
here
as if she was finally
a part of her
true tribe
and that she could
be
as she truly was
authentic
organic
and completely
real
