m is for metaphor. #atozchallenge


m is for metaphor.

I could find a metaphor
For what you give to me
But I don’t need one
I could say you’re the flowers
In full bloom by the fence
Bringing a smile to my face
I could say you’re the moonlight
Glowing in the dark sky
Lighting my evening stroll
I could say you’re the window
Open to the warm breeze
Filling my lungs with life
I could find a metaphor
For what you give to me
But you already know
♥ ♥ ♥

A to Z challenge — a letter a day throughout the month of April (except Sundays) until we reach z.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  1. Excellent. Never gave us the metaphor, but this was perfect. Love the opening as well as your end. (Well, the end of the poem that is). Great M word too.
