For school yesterday, Jack was instructed to write a poem using similes, and metaphors. Here is what he wrote:
I am in Mexico on my boat Santosha
The sky is as gray as ash in a fireplace
The wind groans like an angry monkey
The gypsum dust is like a new piece of dry wall covering our boat
The buildings are as old as rain water from the prehistoric age
The fender is smashed like a pancake against the dock
The old mines are as abandoned as the buildings around it
The Pelicans are fishing like men in a panga
And I am like a poet writing a poem
Thank you Jack, for making me laugh every day.
P.S. The winds have stopped and we are on our way to play in the beautiful sea again!
