Compose Through Metaphor
“Every image in a poem is a portrait of a state of a soul.” Jane Hirshfield

And likewise every image has the potential to represent a theme or a metaphor.
1. What first catches your attention? Your feelings?
2. Make a list of possible other emotions.
3. What ‘voice’ fits this image?
4. Choose one and turn it into a word metaphor.
