I have a problem with poetry.
I was an English lit major in college. We studied the rhyme and meter. I despise metaphor. Seriously! I think it’s because I have read entire poems that are nothing but metaphor. Just write about the damn flower!!!
I have only sparingly used metaphors in my story. Anyway, I like this poem. I haven’t even checked the meter or the rhyme. This poem kinda twists the metaphor, “and it’s beautiful”.
