17th September Morning Blog Post Challenge

Welcome to the blog post challenge.

Below is an example of a blog post written by Pie.

Image Poem

The moon is

as pale as a swan,

like an albino eye staring.

Silver thumbprint.

An apple is

as red as Snow White’s blood,

like a sweet planet.

Blossom’s dream.

A frozen lake is

as smooth as a Lamborghini,

like a giant’s crystalised mirror.

Winters’ camouflage.

A pencil is

as sharp as a cross word,

like a dynamite stick of ideas.


A wave is

as loud as cymbals crushing,

like a hair cut of water curling.

Surfer’s delight.

A swan is

as white as a bride’s dress,

like a graceful dance of feathers.

A glide of savage beauty.

Metaphor Maps


glass eyes;

open mouths.


white, slight figures;

inedible sticks of rock.


soft Wheetabix;

purse of dreams.


jagged moons;

a fist of suns.


frail maps;

lost starfish.


Hair-thin cracks in a vase;

disease strokes the dark.

 AS poem

As quick as a tick,

as slow as a brick in a wall,

as loud as a planet exploding,

as quiet as a mouse praying,

as misty as steam on morning coffee,

as sad as a lost baby’s shoe,

as happy as a first birthday,

as cold as frozen raspberry gelato,

as hot as melted toffee on ice cream,

as tired as a teacher after a day in school,

as lively as a bare electric wire,

as tall as King Kong stretching on his toes,

as distant as the last note of a song fading.
