A Metaphor

A Metaphor


A day over night

A coffee that perks me up

A little ray of light.


Butter in my bread

A sugar makes it sweet

The spice in my food.


Pen in my paper

A thought that fuels my mind

As I write later.


At some point in our lives we lose the zest that we used to have; so we need something that will help us bring back that zest and eagerness in life.

Like when we go to bed at night ….we know that there will always be a morning after…what is your “morning after”?

When we wake up in the morning and the one best thing that helps us kick off our day is a little touch of coffee in our body…What is your little “cup of coffee”?

Or when you put off the light in your room and you suddenly realized there’s a little ray of light passing through your window…what is your “little ray of light”?

Better yet; when you can’t have your bread without butter. That kind of feeling which makes you wanna have more bites each time you have one. What is your “butter in your bread”?

Or for those with sweet tooth; those who can’t live without a dash of sugar in a day. What is your “sugar that makes your food sweeter”?

Or sometimes there are those who love a little spice in their food. The kind of spice that makes you wanna crave for more as you grasp and struggle for a glass of water. What is your “spice in your food”?

And for all of us who’s passion is to make their thoughts come to life through their words; what is your “pen without your paper”? And what are your thoughts without someone to fuel it as you write alone?


Here’s wishing you all that you find your greatest metaphor in life.

  1. Hi Michnavs. Now that’s me spend most of my time in Costa on my laptop listening to medieval music writing. Like anything that’s not good for me. As long as I can shape those words. Thank you for liking my poems Hells End! and Avenue of Trees! And your Great comment On avenue Of Trees. Hope all is well with you. Best Wishes. The Foureyed Poet.
