Saturday mix opposing forces 6th June 2020

Welcome to the Saturday Mix, 6 June 2020!

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:

absence and presence

construct and destruct (suffixes may be added e.g. ed / -ion)

Thanks Sarah!


We are in the absence of the sun

But in the presence of the wild wind

Everything flies around outside

As the wind whips up, like only the wild wind can

Distruction rains supreme

As plant pots

Plastic bags

and other debris

Whirl around

So I will construct a fort

To hide from the wild wind

And stay safe and warm
