Today I hope to attempt a metaphor poem. With this form, you take a topic and then write three lines. Each line should say something different about the subject. The last line wraps it all up with a metaphor.

Laughter is a hungry baby being fed by the mama bird.
Even with a light topic like laughter, I don't feel comfortable with metaphor. When I see writer's use metaphors in their stories or poems, I am always blown away with the obvious, but fresh comparison. I don't seem to have a knack for that quite yet. Perhaps with time. I am off to laugh with family and friends tonight. Perhaps I will find some metaphors with them!
