Similes and Metaphors

Updated on February 5, 2011

Endless Similes and Metaphors on Nature

Similes List:

Nature Similes:

Clear as water on the far away shores of sea

Clouds as soft as snow balls

Burning in sun rays like corns baked on hot sand

As rude as dry winter

As elegant as morning mist

Beaming with glea like a sunny day

Crisp as leaves fallen on the pavement in an autumn day

Serene as sunset

Steadfast as sun

High as moon

Breeze as soft as mother's kiss

Tough as rock

Tints and shades in the clouds like streaks of colors in hair

The air so gentle as a lamb

As quick as lightening

Love Similes:

As beautiful as a newly blown rose flower

Hands as soft as morning dew

Hatred Similes:

Cruel and harsh as stones in the mountain

Death came to her like undesired rain on wheat crops

Burning with envy like coals on fire

Hatred as chilled as ice cubes

Life Similes:

Living a life as chilled as ice

The warmth of life as sun rays in chilling cold

As long as spanned on life

As wise as an owl

As sure as death

Emotions Similes:

Hatred flickering like coal fire by the constant flow of air

Envy as poisonous as snake's venom

As silent as grave

Metaphors List:

Love Metaphors:

Strength of love is stronger than iron

Hatred Metaphors:

The icy chill of winter that never gone away from her life

Life Metaphors:

Life is a mere dream

Dead tired of life

Life fleets faster than clouds

Nature Metaphors:

Blue sky bathed in sun rays

Powder puff clouds

Smoky haze

Chilling wind

Fearful sky

Blanket of cold air

Stale air

Cold hatred

Dreamy air

Attire of snow

Death cold

Heavenly view

Sunny face

Feather of breeze

Sorrows of cold

Sun's veil

Dead of night

The trance of morning

Powder-soft clouds dispersed here and there

Day hiding in the womb of night

Clouds heavy with tears

Heavy raindrops thumping on floor

Winter's first crush

Motherly caressesof leaves in breeze

Blanket of soft breeze

Glittering beads of light

Winter of life

In the storm of thoughts

Emotions Metaphors:

Axe-strong girl

Similes from Famous Poets and Prose Writers:

In his poem Forest of Europe Derek Walcot used many metaphors and similes. Some of them are as follows.

Leaves fell like notes from piano

As bright as whisky

As hard and open as a herds man's face

So every spring these branches load their shelves,

like libraries with newly published leaves

by Derek Walcott

Metaphors from Famous Poets and Prose Writers:

Poetry in forlorn stations

Clouds vast as Asia, through districts

that could gulp Oklahoma like a grape

by Derek Walcott

Robert Frost's poem The Road Not Taken is an excellent example of metaphors. One of the most read and analyzed poem.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood

      I wanted to post you that bit of note so as to say takhns again on your pleasing views you've documented in this article. This has been wonderfully open-handed with you to make unhampered exactly what some people could possibly have marketed for an e book to earn some money for themselves, chiefly given that you could possibly have done it in the event you decided. The tricks additionally worked to provide a great way to recognize that other people have a similar dream like my personal own to know the truth more and more when considering this issue. I know there are many more pleasurable moments up front for those who look over your blog.
