What's It Like?

The assignment was to write ten metaphors or similes, about anything. Here are a few of mine that had promise.

1. He stooped over his desk, all right angles like a geometry equation.
2. Her memory sags, an old clothesline.
3. She held onto the book like a driver gripping a steering wheel.
4. Every morning he picked up his pen and fell to work, as faithful as a piano student practicing scales.
5. She handed back our papers with the enthusiasm of an aerobics instructor.
6. The conversation flitted from here to there and back again, a flock of nuthatches looking for the best seeds.
