April PAD – Day 1, Metaphors of Life

Hello and welcome to April! Here are the pieces I wrote today for Day 1 of the April PAD.
First, we have the Life as metaphor prompt coming from NaPoWriMo. We also got the New World prompt from Poetic Asides. Starting with

Life is like
lying on your balcony
squinting your eyes at the sun.

You stay there and wait,
flexing your pose according to the movement of the sun,
placing a cap over your face, then removing it,
while the sun progresses on its unaltered course,
uninterested in your conscious actions.
