Metaphors

Why do people use the moon

As an endearing metaphor;

To describe how the one they love

Bathes their world in a warm glow?

 

The moon does not emit its own light

It merely reflects that of the sun

So to liken someone to the moon

Is to call them a reflection

Of the beauty and warmth of others

 

So liken them not to the moon

But to the sun and the stars

For it is their own warmth

In which you bask

Not a reflection of others’
