‘Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie’, ‘Saturday Mix’, #OpposingForces.
This 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.
The words this week are:
– fresh and stale
– rise and fall
Fresh Fall Roses
The fall of leaves was nearly over, Autumn had been very trying, hardly ever seeing the sunrise, winter had come far too early, it was going to be a long season, I need to rise to the occasion and lift the happiness I felt today for the coming months and not fall down from my duty as a responsible landowner.
Checking the hay shed out, the smell of stale air filtered with the musty smell of damp hay, made me gasp for breath, even the freshly cut scented roses I had in my hands turned their heads in dismay.
Walking back out I left the doors open, hoping the fresh air starting to circulate would dry it out a little before the setting sun disappears behind the ranges.
It was a joy walking back to the house, the scent of the fresh rose filling the air, they seemed to lift their heads and I’m sure they smiled back at me.
