Fuse

Fuse

As in something that controls the current,

as in a substance

connecting two things together

like God and man.

 

Fuse

as in integration

and fuse as in blowing one’s fuse,

as in a stick of dynamite–

Busy at work

with the former

to stop the latter.

Morning

As in the beginning of a new day.

Mourning

As in the loss or ending

of something cherished

or once cherished–

They both sound the same.

Both can be a new beginning

but, how often do we think that way.

Terminal

As in a place of comings and goings

like an airport,

as in cancer,

as in termination–

Both share completion

but, not always in good time.

Engagement

As in being absorbed in

or soliciting participation in

an activity

like in war.

As in preparing to participate

in the activity of marriage.

Marriage

As in the union of two complements,

As in the joining of two people.

for a common goal

Towards what end?

Divorce

As in separating oneself

from something,

as in divorced from reality

or a marriage.

Which was towards what end?

Pregnant

As in carrying a child,

as in full with ideas or concepts,

as in conception.

Conception

As in the beginning

of the word

of an idea spoken in God’s mind

or as of a child.

Abort

As in the termination

of an idea

or a child

Or as in activities of war.

I'm interested in hearing people's ideas about metaphors and to post other people's metaphors as well as my own!
