    Something unexpected!  A lot of times you’ll find yourself personifying something!


    “…then chasing after the iceman’s wagon, tiny winter on wheels, begging for chips of shaved ice.”

    “The ocean licked the shoreline with waves of foam.”


    “She acts like summer and walks like rain…She listens like spring and she talks like June.”
