On Sea or Land

Written for:  Weejars Saturday Mix-Double Takes, 30 & 

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 four words in your response – which can be poetry or prose.

Our first homophone set this week is:

straight – not crooked
strait – narrow waterway

Our second set of homophones is:

discussed – talked about
disgust – sickening

Here is my attempt:

I tried to straighten the boat,
but was unable to maneuver it
through the strait. Now I am
in dire straits.

Though the subject of Pollack’s
works had been discussed in
four forums of art history,
the man was unable to mask
his disgust, when face
to face with it in a museum.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
