Saturday Mix – Opposing Forces, 15 February 2020

Sarah’s challenge this week:

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:

– mend and break

– noon and midnight

They said butter wouldn’t melt, but he was a sly one. He discovered if he wanted something new, the best way was to break the old, sob those crocodile tears from the baby blues, and bob’s your uncle, the ‘poor little boy’ got a shiny replacement.
Until HER.
She saw right through him. Sure, he never went without the important things, but the ‘new stuff’ slowly began to dwindle, especially as she was a dab hand with a needle and could mend his clothes instead of taking him shopping for new ones.
At noon, she had the world at her feet. She had no idea that the night of the full moon took on a new meaning and by midnight everything as she knew it would change. As would she.

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.
