Saturday Mix – Opposing Forces, 26 May 2018

Thanks Sarah:

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:

– fresh and stale

– rise and fall

Food prices always seem to be on the rise but never fall when things are more plentiful.
I love the smell of fresh bread and in this house it never gets the chance to go stale.
Saying that though, in days past, nothing would be wasted and I’d rise to the occasion making bread pudding out of stale bread.
Sometimes fresh baked cakes would fall flat once removed from the oven, so I’d rename them Frisbee cakes.

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.

    A bit of fun! Well done. A nice take on the words 😊

    • Thanks Sarah. Mum’s bread pudding (not to be confused with bread and butter pudding which I also make sometimes) was out of this world. Better than the shop bought stuff, yet I could never quite match it!

    I admit, the first thing I thought of was cake or bread, but I took my tale in a different direction.
