OctPoWriMo2019 Day 6 — blue — your eyes

Ian Somerhalder eyes

Your Eyes
mesmerizing as a snake’s
cool as first ice on the pond
distant as atmosphere near outer space
blank as a huskie’s
warm as a summer lake
hot as a smiling cowboy’s
cold as an arctic fox’s
clinical as an animal researcher’s
inviting as pie
frightening as hitchcock’s shower scene’s
frightened as hitchcock’s shower scene’s
predatory as a pack of coyotes’
affectionate as a puppy
happy as a bird’s
sad as an elton john’s song’s
mischievous as mr. bean’s
searching as edmund hillary’s
calculating as capone’s accountant’s
loving as velvet
hateful as a hatchet
present as breathing
absent as an abortion
extinguished as the earth’s core

      It really doesn’t matter the color of the eyes, more that eyes have a lot of attributes. The prompt was blue so I used blue. The eyes I was writing about were my x’s eyes and his were actually green.
