And just like that, we're starting week 2 of this challenge. It's time to roll up your sleeves (if you haven't already).
For today's prompt, write a metaphor poem. A simile is when something is like a something else (example: I am like a tree); a metaphor is when something is something else (example: I am a tree). So take a moment to consider possible metaphors and then poem them out.
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Here’s my attempt at a Metaphor Poem:
i flew silently through
the universe for millennia
frozen & larger than life
never touching or being touched
until your gravity pulled me
through your atmosphere
burning off the excess until
i could fit easily in your hand
