For Monday, write a 6 – line poem in which each line compares an object or action to something it resembles (alike). Think of a theme or just see where your imagination goes. Simile (X is like Y) or metaphor (Z is Q) are some poetic devices you might use, but you’re welcome to use any other approaches to show or suggest comparison.
Post by Sunday at 6pm so we all have a chance to read each other’s work before class.
Here’s an example of a response to this prompt:
A small earthquake is more of a sneeze
when people are dutiful bugs, half-willfully,
an ant or bee, they’re more like an anthem
than a song is to a breeze.
Thankfully, webs of time invite a spider’s neglect
when the buildings shake like trees.
