Saturday Mix – Mad About Metaphor, 22 June 2019

Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Mad About Metaphor, 22 June 2019!

This week we are dipping our toes into the pool of METAPHOR. Our challenge is all about the use of metaphor in our writing. You will need to use the metaphor provided in your response – which can be poetry or prose.

Our metaphor this week is:

Blow one’s own trumpet.

Thanks Sarah!

Well done me for cutting the grass today! I have to blow my own trumpet as no-one else is here!
Even if I say so myself, I did a good job (we’ll forget the little bit I somehow missed at the bottom, I’m allowed).
Nice straight (ish) lines, and I cleared up after me. Hubby would have been proud.
The birds thanked me by digging around in the disturbed soil for worms and ants.
I deserved something really nice for my efforts so rewarded myself with a cereal bar.
All syns present and correct. It’s been a damn good day!


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.
