Sarah is our host for the Saturday Mix challenges.
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:
– imprison and free
– break and mend

Magic is a wonderful thing. He knew the only way to keep her safe was to imprison her, but in such a way as to give the illusion she was free.
She could come and go as she pleased, play with the animals and be at one with Nature, knowing none would hurt her. But should she come close to break his protective barriers, something would distract her and guide her back into the fold.
It was not a bad life. She wanted for nothing.
She had friends, but unbeknown to her they were illusions too.
Her presence was a means to mend his broken heart at the loss of his beloved, but he accepted this could not be permanent, and at some stage she would start to ask questions.
Until then, he was her guardian and loyal companion, a playful puppy forever at her side as she enjoyed the wonders of childhood.
Yes, magic is a wonderful thing.
