Opposing Forces – Saturday Mix, 16 January 2021

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:

– answer and question
I’ve always believed in answering a child’s questions as honestly as possible.
So when the inevitable question ‘Mummy and Daddy made me didn’t they?’ arose from one of my ex-partner’s sons, I collected my thoughts to answer the next part ‘How?’ which surprisingly never came.

– together and apart
When I went to NZ in 2010 on my own to visit Bro,  I was forever sending Hubby text messages to share my day and what I was seeing (no photos available until I got to a computer), completely forgetting the 12 hour time difference, so he was getting ‘pinged’ in the middle of the night. Thus we were always together in spirit even though we were so many miles apart.

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.
