This week the words came from LeeAnn in the 79th Peppermint Creek Collective Scavenger Hunt Game

Here’s LeeAnn’s lovely words: pink, chocolate, peony, tea/coffee, intellectual, woman, whirling, champagne, bokeh, diamond, evening romance, dance, kiss, Paris, water…

And here’s the story snippet that I wrote using her words…


she was an intellectual woman
except when she thought of Paris
her memories
filled her mind
like the blush
of her evening romance

it began
with a simple dance
gliding across the stone floor
with the rise
and fall of each measure
her pink petticoat rustling
ruffled like peony

it ended with
a long late night kiss
she could still taste the chocolate
and a bit of champagne
on his lips

the city lights sparkling
on the water of the river Seine
like a thousand diamonds

in the morning
over coffee
she would remember
each out of focus image
a set of precious bokehs
each and
