Here’s a quickie simile poem idea.
The poem is a description of the person writing it, they should describe each part in the most surprising, and positive way they can. They must be as complimentary as possible about themselves. Each colour should be true, the description of the colour can be as vivid as they like.
Line one describes their hair colour, line two describes that colour further with a simile
Line three describes their eye colour, line four describes that colour with a simile.
Line five describes their skin colour, and line six further describes that colour with a simile.
Line 7 describes the colour of their hearts. This can be ANY colour. Line eight will be a simile again, and can be of anything, but animals work very well.
The colours of me!
My hair is brown
like conkers in the sun
my eyes are brown
as autumn nuts
my skin is paler pink
than summer buds
and my heart
like the leopard
that hides in the grasses.
Have fun! This poem can be done with many variations.
