Saturday Mix – Double Take, 10 October 2020

Welcome to the Saturday Mix, 10 October 2020!

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

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:

ark – vessel
arc – portion of a circle


elude – escape from
illude – to deceive

Something didn’t look quite right. He’d followed the plans to the letter, but somehow his Ark had a few too many arcs in it and it was extremely doubtful it would float, let alone carry anything. Oh well, back to the drawing board.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing and how she wished she could elude her current situation. It had not all been of her making, but the rose coloured glasses had assisted him to illude her.

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.
