Opposing Forces – Saturday Mix, 23 October 2021

Sarah is our host for the MLMM Saturday Mix. You can find out more and join in here
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

– order and mess

Sally always had to make do and fix anything that got broken. This wasn’t too much of a challenge in most things, but when her young son asked her to mend his goldfish when it died, it was enough to break her heart.

Someone’s mess is another person’s order, or so I was told when I worked in an office.
I cannot work in a muddle, so I had more filing trays than most: In, Pending and Out.

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.
