#MM Saturday Mix — Ride ’em, Cowgirl

Image result for woman riding old horse
Constance Douglas

As the horse had a limp to his gait
Made me fall as I reached for the gate
As the horse from you leased
Pay med bills at the least
Or to court for small claims; test your fate.


I went with a limerick, which has, per shadowpoetry.com, a set rhyme scheme of : a-a-b-b-a with a syllable structure of: 9-9-6-6-9.

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:
gait – manner of walking or running
gate – fence door
leased – rented
least – the minimum

      Thanks, Sadje. I went looking for a picture to go with the limerick and loved this one. What was neat is reading the story of the lady in the picture, which you can read if you click on her name.
