Saturday Mix – Double Take, 15 August 2020

This week we are seeing double with ‘Double Take’.
Thanks Sarah

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:

aisle – walkway
I’ll – contraction of “I will”
isle – island


alter – to change
altar – raised centre of worship

I’ll never forget the day I walked up the aisle to stand beside my husband to be.
The altar was draped in a white cloth with gold scrolls printed on it, beautiful candles standing to attention on the top.
In hindsight, it may have been best to alter the arrangements and not go through with it, then I could have spent the money on a holiday somewhere on a desert isle!

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.

    A falling out is most unfortunate but it can happen to anybody! A good twist to the prompt!
