Wednesday's Words on a Friday

On Wednesdays, Delores, from Under The Porch Light, has a meme which she calls
“Words for Wednesday”.

She puts up a selection of six words which we then use in a short story, or a poem.
I’m hopeless at poetry so I usually do a story.

It’s a fun challenge…why not join in?

This week's words are:

1. mellifluous
2. endangered
3. crabby
4. flaunt
5. gravy
6. turpentine

Here is what I've done:

the clues.

the challenge.

Delores has also given us a sentence prompt:

"the cold grey gun barrel of winter."

That's a toughie, winter down here in Australia isn't all that cold and grey for very long.



  1. That cover everything and it's different.
    Merle......... ........... ..........

  2. English is my first language image if it was my second.
    Merle....... ............ ..........

  3. Delores; thank you, I was just doodling the words on scrap paper.

    Elephant's Child; thank you too.

    Merlesworld; I couldn't work them into a story, so tried something different. As a second language, crosswords are a great way to learn English.

    fishducky; thank you.

  4. Oh, aren't you the clever one? Love it. I wondered how anyone could put that unusual group of words into a story, but you pulled it off in a very creative way.

  5. Susan; I enjoy doing crosswords, but creating one was a very different experience.

    Weekend-Windup; welcome to drifting. Thank you.

  6. That is just so brilliant. I too enjoy doing crosswords (and playing Scrabble online) but I would never attempt to compose a crossword and take my hat off to those that do. Clever you!!!

  7. Mimsie; I played scrabble online for a while, just against the computer, not other people, then the free trial ran out and they wanted me to pay for the game. I've never made a crossword before, this is my first.
