Vice Versa - #13

Every Tuesday you will find  Vice/Versa  posted here at 12:01 a.m.

Please, when you link your own writing, do others who link the courtesy of visiting their links as well.  It truly is such a small group this is very possible.  Don't just 'link and run.'  And if someone visits your blog, please visit theirs in return; as we are all about community and reciprocity here.

 For this week's “Vice/Versa” I am going to shake it up a bit.  I have posted three random words along with their polar opposites (Otherwise known as antonyms). Chose TWO of the pairs (or all three if you really are feeling creative.) Write something using all four words. (Or six!)
This week's  
Vice Versa
Write poetry or prose using four words, two sets of opposites (your choice).  It can be any form of poetry or prose.  Post your related scribbling and leave a comment. (We love comments too.)  Then enjoy the writings of others who post here and see how they differ from you.

Despair /Hope
Embrace / Neglect
               Simple Rules
  • Post any time; it's just the night owls who get first crack.
  • Make sure to visit other  scribes.
  • Leave us a comment about the words before you  nod off.
  • Or just a comment saying hi!
  • Most of all, enjoy!


  1. No time to do a proper post, but wanted to share this Vice Versa, fun-snippet haiku...

    From depths of despair,
    remember hope springs eternal.
    Don't object - welcome!

    What good advice, eh? LOL

  2. Thanks for the prompt Mary :) Good words.

  3. Thanks Mary - first quick stop and attempt - great fun! :).

    1. Apologies for double post IPAD finger slip before posting properly :)

  4. Glad to see you all here! Have commented on each so far. Hope others will make the rounds. Not so many posts, so it really isn't hard.

  5. Once again Mary, you've offered up a prompt that took me back to places I've long resisted... but I'm finding the experiences to be exhilarating and freeing. What's down in the dark isn't as scary as I thought! Thanks again!

  6. Thank you! This was a tough one.

  7. Mary, these words are beyond me I'm afraid.
    Well done those that can accommodate them in a small space.
    Wish I could go back in time and pick an earlier combo :-)

    1. Aprille, I understand. Sometimes particular words just don't bring anything to mind. Hope to see you next week!

  8. I want to be part of this challenge, Aprille. Which is the last date..?
