#MM Saturday Mix – Opposing Forces

like dawn you crept in to mend these cracks with golden light
this vessel again fit to hold a promise fulfilled with love’s elixir
drinking in brightest noon, thirsting as we entwined in toasts

day waned and midnight fell, our restored cups clattering evermore
breaking our once cupped hearts into red glittering shards that
left essential pieces strewn helter skelter on the dirt trodden floor

 

 

Sarah is the host of Mindlovemisery Menagerie’s Saturday Mix.  Sarah says:
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:
– mend and break
– noon and midnight

      Yah, I just looked for it and it disappeared. It was there last night, but Sarah must have realized she posted it a day earlier than usual and removed it. I’ll change the link when she reposts.

      Thanks, Sarah. No worries, WP can have a mind of its own that’s for sure.
