Our first homophone set this week is:
bolder – more courageous
boulder – large rock
Our second set of homophones is:
flew – past tense of fly
flu – short for influenza
flue – chimney pipe
The large stone stood alone in the field, dejected, unloved, unwanted, and ugly.
How it got there, nobody knew, yet most gave it a wide berth, believing it to be cursed.
All except one:
To me, you’re just a boulder,
Sometimes a comforting shoulder,
A shield from climates colder,
A relic of things much older,
Beauty in the eye of the beholder,
These words from someone bolder.
So much for the ‘flu jab.
The bird flew past my window as I lay snuffling in bed.
Getting up, I gazed out to see it warming its toes on the flue of the roof next door.
