Fun Making a Metaphor

A great exercise is to make a list of interesting nouns and adjectives and try to match them up in metaphor. Use "x" is "y", "x" of "y" and "x"'s y".

The spoon is a perky catapult as it launches a piece of cheese cake towards the rosy laughing cheek on the other side of the table.

The spoon of perky jelly is carefully floating towards the joyful meeting of peanut butter and brown bread.

The spoon's perky shine screams into tarnish from the torture of melting powder over the open flame.

The economy is now a thin shoe. We all feel the sidewalk ever closer.

The beer bottle was elastic as it kept bouncing back from the table to his mouth.

The cheap straw hat's a "Wet Paint" sign. It made him stop in his tracks. She looked that good.

The straw hat of wet ideas collapsed on to his face and shoulders. His colleagues chuckled. He wasn't embarrassed. Better a bunch of crazy ideas than no ideas.
