Saturday Mix – Double Take, 4 August 2018

Over to Sarah for this week’s Saturday Mix
https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/19271780/posts/1947518543

The ‘Double Take’ challenge focuses on the use of homophones* to build your writing piece. You have two sets of homophones and you are challenged to use all of them in your response – which can be poetry or prose.

Our homophone sets this week are:

heal – to cure of disease
heel – hind part of foot
he’ll – contraction of “he will”

and

lain – past tense of lay
lane – narrow road

‘My husband has a blister on his heel which has turned septic and refuses to heal.
He’ll need an appointment with the foot doc now as he’s diabetic.’

The place where the body had lain was still warm. Despite the narrow lane, the ambulance had got to the accident site in record time.

 

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 recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.

    Very good. Can I add that the ship ‘Elaine’ had a bad heel to starboard?
