Exercise #2 – Making Similes

Look through a book of poems you like, and find a few similes to use as inspiration.
Now go someplace where you can observe nature, people, traffic, or something.
Based on what you notice, begin listing some similes. They don’t have to make
complete sense. Don’t think about what else you would write with them. Just
write whatever you think of.

Go back and read what you wrote to see where the opportunities are. Sometimes,
you simply need to close your journal. Come back to the list another day, with fresh eyes.
You may be surprised by what you find.
