For Poetry Month 2014, I'm searching for metaphors and similes. Join me! Here's a bit more on this month's project.

April 17

SNAKE metaphor


Here’s a poem I wrote in 2010.
I’ve just spent an hour rewriting it.
First I’ll show you the poem as I found it,
then I’ll show you how I have rewritten it so far.

My watch is a snake
winding around my wrist.
Still. Frozen. Waiting…it thinks I don’t know
it might strike
at any
moment.

April 16, 2014

A snake
winds around
my wrist.

It watches me.
It might strike
any second.

 

What metaphor struck you today?  Look out!
