Double Take – Saturday Mix, 13 November 2021

Sarah is our hostess for the Saturday Mix challenge. You can find out more and join in here
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:

canvas – rough cloth
canvass – to examine thoroughly


born – brought to life
borne – past participle of bear
bourn – a small stream or boundary

The canvas looked familiar. He tried to canvass it discreetly believing it to be a lost Masterpiece.

Chiding her for having dreams and ambition, she had borne the scorn of her father for years.
The bourn at the end of the dirt track was a source of her positivity and salvation. Even at the hardest of times, it still flowed, even if just a trickle, and she vowed never to give up.
She may have been born into poverty, but she had a quiet dignity and poise.

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.
