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

April 23

POMEGRANATE SEEDS metaphor


I’ve been an instructor with the UCLA Extension Writers’ Program for over 15 years.

Every class is different.  How best to describe my students?

~ a herd of deer?
~ a pack of wolves?
~ a litter of puppies?

Here’s a haiku I wrote after teaching the first class of a new quarter:

Twelve crisp, ruby sweet
pomegranate seeds: my new
delicious students
