Squint – & – The Cut


Saturday Mix, 4 August 2018!

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

ever since

not seeing clear anymore






The Cut”

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.

    1. I wrote too fast today, I am just seeing that I made a mistake:

      “she firmly expected he’ll come” (he will)

      should really be “he’d” come (he would)

      I see if I can change it in time.

      Thx again.
