The original Words for Wednesday was begun by Delores and eventually taken over by a moveable feast of participants when Delores had computer troubles.
The aim of the words is to encourage us to write, a story, a poem, whatever comes to mind.
If you are posting an entry on your own blog, please let us know so we can come along and read it.
This month the words are supplied by Elephant's Child and can be found here.
This week's words are:

Here is my story:
The churning waters of the river, dashing wild and free towards the ocean, usually brought peace of mind as I walked along its banks. Today I had too much on my mind and the sight held little interest for me.
With a small shrug, I turned away and trudged towards home. Passing through the orchard, I picked up the bucket waiting by the gate and filled it with apples on my way to the house. The low winter sunlight cast long shadows as dusk neared.
Entering the kitchen I called out to Mum. "I'm home! Got a bucket of apples too." Mum came in from buffing the new coat of wax on the old dining table and gave me a hug.
"It's good to see you Lisa, your phone call earlier had me worried a bit, but I know you. You'll bounce back from this. You're not the first naive girl to be disillusioned by something like this and you won't be the last. That's a super load of apples, how about we make some apple pies?"
