Lovely little simile

Following on from yesterday’s post, I have been keeping my eyes peeled for descriptive language that appeals to me.  I am currently reading Chocolat by Joanne Harris which contains the following simile:

she would lose touch with reality for hours, drifting between fantasies like a butterfly between flowers

A simple but effective simile.  I am also a little starstruck tonight because Joanne Harris responded to me on Twitter 🙂

I would love to hear your favourite similes, metaphors or any piece of descriptive writing you feel is worth sharing.  Leave a comment or contact me through my shiny new contact form or Twitter.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Diane.
