A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Welcome to Saturday’s Mix. I will be hosting every Saturday throughout the summer while Bastet is taking a break. Today, I thought we’d look at Emily Dickinson. Known for her unusual similes and metaphors, she can be rather cryptic to read. For example, she wrote this poem:
A Route of Evanescence,
With a revolving Wheel–
A Resonance of Emerald
A Rush of Cochineal–
And every Blossom on the Bush
Adjusts it’s tumbled Head–
The Mail from Tunis—probably,
An easy Morning’s Ride–
Who would guess she’s actually describing a hummingbird?
Today’s challenge is to write a poem or short piece of poetic prose using unique similes and metaphors to describe some aspect of nature. It can be an animal, plant or anything else from the natural world, but the real challenge is find new and unique ways to describe it.
Alternatively, you can write a piece of short fiction (no more than 150 words) about a hummingbird, literal or metaphorical.
Finally, you can use one of the images to write a poem or shadorma about a hummingbird.
Once you’ve written your piece please tag your work Mindlovesmisery’s Menagerie and Saturday Mix then either ping back or put a link to your work in the comments below. To make things simpler you can add your link to the Mr. Linky app below so everyone will be able to quickly find your work.
