metaphors and similies

To me, you are

warm rain
sweeping through
the barren desert

a fine mist seeping
into freshly turned
rich dark earth

fine chocolate
melting on my tongue
decadent and indulgent

the fire well stoked
hot in the early hours
of a bitterly cold morn

kisses brushed
softly across
the nape of my neck

tiny dust motes
basking golden in the sun
when before
they had passed unnoticed

like these moments,
I love you

    a wonderfully luscious poem: I like the chocolate image and oh thanks for visiting my blog: we whimsies must stick together 🙂

    Mims, nobody does it better:
    kisses brushed
    softly across
    the nape of my neck…

    lovely. lovely. lovely. (repeating for emphasis) 🙂

    These metaphors are like similes, but different, in the way that something profound is different from this comment. But, having said all that, I liked this!
