Saturday Mix – Opposing Forces, 11 November 2017

This week we are dipping our toes into the pool of OPPOSITES. Our challenge is all about “opposing forces” and the use of antithesis in our writing. You will need to use the two opposing words in your response – which can be poetry or prose.

Our words this week are:

– broad and narrow

– funny and serious

Thanks Sarah

‘Just a thought’ thoughts:

You can have broad beans but not narrow beans.
We lived on a narrowboat but friends had a widebeam not a broadboat.
However, we often say people have narrow hips or are broad across the beam when describing their lower shape.

Have you ever thought that we all have a funny bone, but not a serious one?
My folks said it seemed funny to see me so serious when Hubby and I got married in the registry office. They thought I was about to burst into tears any minute, which I found funny!

All a figure of speech I guess.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
