NaPoWriMo Day 26


Today’s prompt is to write an epic simile.

The Kiss

it flowed like a river
increasing in intensity
making my heart lurch
like a raft in the midst of rapids
momentarily suspended
only to descend to the depths
and finally to ebb
into gentle buoyancy

like a magnet
his lips drew me in
and I could not escape
his powerful attraction
pulling me away
from every distraction
centering my attention
like a telescope

time elapsed so leisurely
like the passage of a shadow
across a sundial face
yet it felt like no time at all
and ended too soon
what I’d waited for all my life
over in an instant

oh, may we repeat it
every day
every hour
every minute
like a healing habit
a holy blessing
