The frog picture originally came from Palestine Rose.
Here’s a few metaphors to get the juices flowing.
The human book.
Pages of arms and legs.
I need to find the word ‘sight’ before I can read a single word of this.
I hope these fireworks don’t go off until dark.
The aperatifs grew and escaped to a bigger party.
There are too many cocktail sticks in my drink said land looking at his lake.
Shake a leaf.
The roof is leaking.
Move, green hoarder of moisture.
Penny wrote a poem on her blog from last weeks picture. It’s so nice to see Metaphor Monday spreading its metaphorical wings ;)
There’s a great metaphor post today on Swagger blog by Kim Van Sickler. Please check it out.
Well, this is the last week before school holidays here and life is busy with summer activities already but I’m managing to write a bit so that’s a bonus. I’ve started working on a new book of poems about the Everglades using lots of characters and ideas from my Big Al picture book. I’ll be talking all about picture books in Wednesday’s post which is the big 12×12 blog party!
Green hoarder of moisture
on innocent amphibian.
Fireworks and water works,
Who will eat thee?
Or paint the landscape
with crayon bait
and water picks.
I see write through you
and read you like a book.
Special thanks to the poem contributors: Penny, Erik and Julie :)
A melange of metaphors
Green hoarder of moisture,
giant shish-kebab, crayon bait,
I see write through
your water works.
