Quickfire Wordcloud Contest by Lissomer

01.05.2015 - Quickfire Wordcloud Contest!Well, hello everyone :heart:
Phewff! NaPoWriMo is over, and I'll bet some of you won't know what to do with yourselves, not having to write every day! I'm here to help with that, haha. It's come to my attention that I have a decent amount of points just sitting around waiting to be used (or given!) With that in mind, I'm going to hold another contest! The last one went so well, I'm really pumped up for this one! Woo! So exciting!  (So many exclamation points!)
Welcome to my Quickfire Wordcloud Contest!
This is intended to be a short and sweet contest with some nice point prizes.
My :la: is a square-FREE ICON 


:bulletblue: Below the rules you will find a list of words. Use at least SIX of these words to craft an amazing piece of poetry or prose! The six words you choose MUST be used in the body of your entry, titles don't count! Make sure you list the words that you've chosen in the description of your deviation.

May: Hope Survives by LadyLincoln

May: Hope SurvivesWelcome to May!
As another spring comes into full bloom, a new season of hope begins. This year also marks the fifth anniversary of the discovery of momma’s lung cancer. On May ninth, I recall waking cheerfully that day, putting the finishing touches on my mother’s day card, warmly reminding her that she was my “hero.” Opening the curtains, I admired the flowers and sunshine, so looking forward to seeing her – although I knew she had not been feeling quite well those previous weeks, and was much quieter than usual. On that afternoon, as we often did, we enjoyed each other’s company with a nice brunch and our usual chat-chat. She was downcast. Gently holding onto her hand, I asked her if she felt sickly to her stomach. In these recent days, momma had not been eating properly; fighting off what we all thought was the flu, although we knew better – and she tried to be re-assuring.

In the year of the discovery of momma’s deadly Lung Cancer in 2010, Jaime, Crossfire120576, was one of the first who reached out a loving hand, sending little notes of support and posting optimistic messages that kept me fighting. And, when I did not think I could fight on any further – I was taken aback by surprise by a touching message in my DeviantART inbox:
