TANGERINE metaphor

For Poetry Month 2014,
I’m searching for metaphors and similes.
Join me!  Here’s a bit more on this month’s project.

The other day I wrote a poem about a tangerine.

In my poem, the tangerine was a gift,
and I looked forward to eating it,
to having all of its tangerine sweet-ness to myself.

But my friend came over, crying.

I gave her my beautiful tangerine.

Was my poem about a tangerine?

No.  I used tangerine as a metaphor for my day.
I’d planned to spend it happily alone.
Instead, I shared part of my day with my friend.
