This week we are seeing double with ‘Double Take’.
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:
heal – to cure of disease
heel – hind part of foot
he’ll – contraction of “he will”
lain – past tense of lay
lane – narrow road
I have 2 and just put them on one page:
She lived way too long in the fast lane
busy with life, work, stress and activities
rat racing away
from her home country
It was time to catch up in person
not just through the line and
via a machine
When she invited him for a gig
close to his town
she firmly expected he’d come
as he emailed that he’ll
have a look at his schedule,
a ticket was even booked
but he couldn’t make it
Some months later she learned
that he has lain for days
not able to heal
She lost track,
went on a free fall
and has been on life’s heel
not seeing clear anymore
Thinking he’ll heal after the injury to his heel when he was lain in the lane after the flame erupted in the plane. But they had to amputate.
