Sophia told me she didn’t use similes but she used metaphors. See if you can spot them. This is a poem as rich as the deep sea. The length of the lines suits the poem.
The Underwater Realm
A watery Kingdom,
An underwater world
Hidden from view, lost in a forest of slimy tentacles
Stingrays stand guard in their black and white uniforms, defending a vault of sand dollars
Clownfish perform while a school of fish are learning about boats
Catfish chase their tails and seahorses gallop in circles
But all is hidden from view, blocked by a wall of waving arms, reaching for the sky
Nothing can be seen by the outside world but a few scattered fish, lost in the paths of the sea
All is veiled by a slimy barrier of seaweed
