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

April 27

DOORBELL metaphor


This time when I press it,

no inside echo.

No door bursting open.

no lights,

……….no balloons,

………………no confetti.

Sometimes, life events make me more creative.  When my father died, poems poured out of me.

Other times, the well runs dry.

Guess which one today’s metaphor is trying to describe.  :-)

Is anyone answering your doorbell today?
