When Molly, Nonu and I were on the beach this morning I spotted something odd — I had no idea what it was. I started hunting for similes as we walked along the beach. This what I came up with in my head. It is not a polished poem … just a first draft!
Take a look at the photo and see if you can come up with some good similes and a seaweed poem. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name, age, year and name of school. You can include your teacher’s name and email address if you like.
This morning I saw something strange.
It looked like a little alien sleeping in the sand
or a strange octopus that had crawled
from the deep sea,
or an exotic flower blown
in from China,
or a slithery snake with three tails.
Molly and Nonu sniffed
and licked, tails wagging
at the alien seaweed.
