Quick Write- Saying More with Metaphors: Using the Element of Surprise to Say Big Things
Today we are challenged to put words together to create a vivid metaphor. I decided to play with worry and a forest fire. Worry can start out as a single thought, an idea or concern. It takes only one match to start a fire. As we worry and fret over what may or may not happen, we fan the flames. A small fire might burn only one twig but if left unattended, it soon engulfs the entire forest. If we continue to fret and worry, we are soon consumed just as the forest fire licks each branch and mighty oak!!
