Sarah’s challenge: https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/19271780/posts/2413009219
This week we are dipping our toes into the pool of METAPHOR. Our challenge is all about the use of metaphor in our writing. You will need to use the metaphor provided in your response – which can be poetry or prose.
Our metaphor this week is:
– Loose cannon.
Uncle Nigel had a heart of gold, but he was not all that popular with his relatives.
It wasn’t that they didn’t like him, far from it, but he was a bit of a loose cannon if you got him talking on one of the more delicate subjects like politics or religion, as he was more than likely to put his size 11 feet in it right up to the ankles. You never knew what he would come out with or what his reaction might be and though he would try to make good any faux pas on his part, he’d gradually wade in further up to his knees, so most times people stuck with the weather, family or pets.
