an offhand wish

….this week I used the w words that I chose for the Peppermint Creek Collective’s Scavenger Hunt Game.

……’s the words: wand, wander, wares, wick, wild, wind, window, wish, wispy, witchcraft, woman, woods, word, worn, woven

…………..and here’s the “story snippet” that I wrote using those words…..

“an offhand wish”

it all began with
one glance
out the worn windowsill
at the wild woods below
as the wind began to rise
she added an offhand
with a touch of wanderlust
for more adventure
in her life


her words were spoken
as she blew out a candle
watching the wispy tendrils
of smoke
waft away from the wick


she was unaware
of the witchcraft she released
a series of spells cast
without a wand
so much magic
was wonderfully woven into
her simple innocent act


and the next day
an old woman
appeared at her
selling a few wares
and her adventure
