Chapter 1
the sand weeps it presence... - photograph by David Muench
Makena Coastline, Maui, Hawaii
1997 David Muench
simile (sme-l) noun - A figure of speech in which two essentially unlike things are compared, often in a phrase introduced by like or as.
 

simile

an ocean, you said,
is like sadness:
waves gathering
restlessly rushing its shores
the sand weeps its presence
it leaves for a time
yet always returns --
So should the taste of the tear
on your face when I kissed you
	surprise me?
	
Jonathan Bohrn (1998)
