Friday Fun – contradiction

contradictions abound … oxymorons or just plain deviancy
please share a true or fictional contradiction in your life?

Whether through your lens or using creative writing … go where the prompt leads!

and please read a couple of other links to get more involved
as a community?  this happens at dVerse and it really works for me

Photo is of two ducks [one’s tail is only just showing] sheltering
from the rain under a drink fountain
… so a few contradictions here!

Please complete before next Friday using a pingback to link your post.
Not sure how to do that then see how to create pingbacks here.


  1. I’m finding an awfully funny situation… The sun is shining,,, It’s pouring rain, windy and cold….
    Haiku: Cold Rain

    Time’s, I played in rain
    Today I worked in the cold
    Wet and shivering

    Autumn’s fat rain drops
    Have lost their warmth and softness
    Winter’s hard as ice

  2. Contradiction carries life itself. We can remember the contrasts more easily. They color not only the language but show the world more interestingly.

  3. Here’s one, maybe. Silence, total silence, actually is quite distracting. In the absence any nose, be it music, television, even the birds outside, I simply cannot focus.

    Likewise, at night, without traffic noise, or even night insects serenading, it’s difficult to fall asleep.

    Once, in my medical past, I took a sleep study. To make it “easier” for me, the docs subdued anything that made noise.

    Nice effort, guys, but you’re not really helping.

    • ouch Keith sorry to hear that, I love silence but it usually has those other noises in the background .. only experienced true silence in a radio studio and caves … I love my sleep 🙂

  4. i love this one! the composition and what inspired your prompt. water like fire can be both friend and foe, elements of nature not to be treated lightly. I also think animals are way smarter than we give them credit.

  5. For a time (I think in the 1950’s a “DA” was a guys hair style.
    All that ‘grease’ formed into a point at the back of the gents head to look like the back of a duck.
    People are contradictions 🙂
