Using Wednesday's Words

Words for Wednesday is a weekly writing prompt designed to get our creative juices flowing.  This month River of Drifting Through Life (you can find her in my sidebar) is providing the word prompts .  Why not give it a shot?

These are this weeks words....
caldera, Merlin, unicorn, crossbow, thoughtless, stunning
glinting, crop, valley, particular, deliberately and cave

here we go:

The sunlight glinting off the water pooled in the caldera was blinding but Shannon, with the aid of her iggaak she had acquired from her last adventure, could see Merlins reflection.  The stunning white unicorn posed dramatically at the lip of the caldera.  He made quite the picture against the backdrop of cobalt blue sky and fluffy white clouds.  She deliberately raised her crossbow and with particular care aimed at an outcropping of shale just beneath the delicate hooves.  
"Don't even think about it." Merlin snarled in a decidedly un-unicornish voice.  "I have no desire to topple into the valley below us as a result of your thoughtless, while no doubt hilarious, actions.  "What's that?" he barked.  "Just to your left and about 20 feet down.  It looks like a cave entrance."
Shannon whooped.  "It looks like THE cave entrance." she shrieked.  "Get over here and we'll investigate."


  1. still curious about what is in the cave, potential shelter from the weather? or a treasure trove?

    1. I have no clue...perhaps the next set of words will offer an indication.

  2. Terrific,'ve nailed it once more! :)

  3. Not easy words to use, but you succeeded. I had to ask Alexa (Amazon know-it-all) what caldera is. I learned something today and that is always a good thing.

  4. This sounds like an interesting partnership!! Well done with those words. I gave up when I saw caldera!

  5. Good job! And you even threw in a word I didn't know. Iggaak. I already learned what a caldera was from River's post. But you're gonna make me look it up, aren't ya? (It isn't in my antique dictionary, so I'll have to look online.) Thanks for trying to broaden my brain. Lord know, the rest of me is broad enough.

    Have a super weekend!


It's lovely to know someone else is out there. Please leave me a comment...pretty please.
