gossamer; described artfully
for the purpose of:
whimsical hyperbole, or rhetoric:
an over-description of an
otherwise common trait,
or concept

a literary example
would be to
liken an emotion to
a physical symbol
such as
a mountain
the uphill struggle
or, love
that runs as deep
as an ocean
or, delicate grace being
attributed to

layered generously with
heavy words, yet
to only paint the surface
