Extension Can you turn any of your vocabulary into similes or metaphors to include in your poem? 


Metaphor: is a word or a phrase used to describe something as if it were something else: "A wave of terror washed over him." The terror isn't actually a wave, but a wave is a good way of describing the feeling.

Simile: describes something by comparing it to something else, using like or as: The thunder claps as loud as a firing gun
