…I’ve been very busy lately, but managed to write a this story snippet at 2am…….

…….the words came from Kim in the Peppermint Creek Collective’s Scavenger Hunt Game…..

…..Kim’s lovely 15 chosen words are: dreamer, spring, rain, contrast, home, circular, soft, natural, Easter, texture, bloom, white, morning, cotton, urban…..

……….and here’s the story snippet that I wrote using them……


she woke
so very early
on this Easter
to the soft sound
of a pattering spring rain

r 1a

she cast aside
her featherweight white cotton sheets
with the texture of a whisper
leaving her lover
lost in the world of his dreams
as the circular path of the garden
beckoned her
beyond the French doors


she always felt at home
in the natural world
so very far away from her daily urban grind


and as she reached
her garden
with raindrops
buds and blooms
fresh with new growth
in stark contrast
to the long winter


she found solitude
and the space to go within
and breathe so very deep
and with the first hint
of the glowing
early morning light
she was enveloped by an expansive
profound peace
in her quiet sacred space
as her world was reborn
once again
