Saturday Mix – Opposing Forces, 10 November 2018

This week Sarah says 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:

– simple and complicated

– vowel and consonant

Full details and how to submit your contribution can be found here:

Even though I retired from office work 11 years ago, I still keep my hand in with spreadsheets. It drives Hubby nuts as he can’t make head nor tail of them. Of course for me it’s simple and straightforward. For him, its complicated and confusing, but at the end of the day we are keeping our heads above water and doing OK.

Argh! Vowels (42) and consonants( 56), those dreaded letters from the Scrabble game and for some, a reason to throw a paddy and sulk.

I spent hours checking out two letter words that are acceptable and also the longest all vowel
EUOUAE : a gregorian cadence
and all consonant
CRWTHS : a Welsh (celtic) instrument
words.

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.
