Do you know Gillian at the Dreaming Press? She is one of the neatest gals I know. She has done this meme, "If I Were" and I am copycatting her here. Try and stop me, bitches. ;-)
If I were a month, I would be November. After the trick or treaters go home, the real witches walk the earth. Under a yellow moon, you'll see us pass by with our black cat familiars.
If I were a day, I would be the winter solstice. I know I was probably supposed to say a day of the week, but you know how I get.
If I were a time of day, I would be early morning. I almost said sunset, because I love that, too, but early morning is so full of promise. It's quiet and fresh and I love it.
If I were a font, I would be Helvetica. It's a little different, slightly goth-y, and the word sounds other-worldly and feminine.
If I were a sea animal, I would be a mermaid. I would be ridiculously beautiful and impossible to catch. Hey, sailor....*laffin*
If I were a direction, I would be true north. That way, my love could always find me.
If I were a piece of furniture, I would be a baby grand piano. Shiny and black and in perfect tune, I would bring joy by both sight and sound. I would belong to some soft rocker chick and she would find so many songs in my smooth and eager keys.
If I were a liquid, I would be mango juice, in a tall glass on a table outside.
If I were a gemstone, I would be onyx. Some of my layers would be constant, others ever changing.
If I were a tree, I would be an apple tree with beautiful white blossoms. Lovers would kiss beneath my sheltering branches.
If I were a tool, I would be an axe held in a sure and accurate hand.
If I were a flower, I would be a white lily. I would know love by brides and mystery by death.
If I were an element of weather, I would be a summer storm. The dark sky would be my hair, the lightning my eyes, the thunder my passion and the rain my love.
If I were a musical instrument, other than the baby grand I already wrote about, I would be a black electric guitar. I would belong to a young woman who had been told she could never play me well enough. Together, we would prove them all wrong.
If I were a color, I would be red, baby. Bold, beautiful, sexy red.
If I were emotion, I would be passion.
If I were a fruit, I would be an apple. I would be temptation for the weak, poison for the cruel, nourishment for the hungry and a gift for teachers.
If I were a sound, I would be the sound of the wind through the trees, reminding everyone that the unseen is real and the world around them is a living, moving entity.
If I were an element, I would be air. I would be filled with birds.
If I were a car, I would be a classic Detroit muscle car. I would belong to a girl, and I would be her body when she needed to be bigger, stronger, faster, bolder.
If I were food, I would be lasagna. I would be served on a bright white china plate and set upon a clean checkered table cloth in a cozy restaurant. I would be created especially for the joy of a dark haired woman in a white dress whose lover will propose before I am gone.
If I were a place, I would be a bakery. I would smell wonderful. I would offer joy.
If I were a material, I would be silk. I would come all the way from China, just to please someone's skin.
If I were a taste, I would be the intimate taste of the woman I love.
If I were a scent, I would be the scent of night blooming jasmine, simply because it is my favorite.
If I were a body part, I would be a woman's vulva, and I would be smug about it.
If I were a song, I would be a ballad, sung in Spanish, in a garden, on a summer night.
If I were a bird, I would be a white dove. I would belong to a black-haired woman. She would tell me why she is crying, and my beauty would make her less sad.
If I were a gift, I would be made of silver.
If I were a city, I would be San Antonio, Texas. A river would flow through my heart.
If I were a door, I would be the door to home, my handle held by a weary and grateful hand.
If I were a pair of shoes, I would be a pair of Curves sneakers. Someone would go walking in me.
If I were a poem, I would be one of my own poems. I would give myself to someone I love; to light her heart, and also my own.
If you would like to do this little meme, consider yourself invited. :-)
