    Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. First of all learn what a metaphor is:

    Metaphor [Gr.,=transfer], in rhetoric, a figure of speech in which one class of things is referred to as if it belonged to another class. Whereas a simile states that A is like B, a metaphor states that A is B or substitutes B for A. Some metaphors are explicit, like Shakespeare's line from As You Like It: All the world's a stage. A metaphor can also be implicit, as in Shakespeare's Sonnet LXXIII, where old age is indicated by a description of autumn:That time of year thou mayst in me beholdWhere yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hangUpon those boughs which shake against the cold,Bare ruined choirs, where once the sweet birds sang.A dead metaphor, such as the arm of a chair, is one that has become so common that it is no longer considered a metaphor.

    When you hear the term "rhetorical devices" metaphors are one. Now, write the metaphors you'd like about the moon and put them in a poem form. You could have the rhyme scheme AABBCC or ABCABC, or any combination thereof! After you write it, feel free to post here for critique.

    This makes me think of the song Dean Martin sang, comparing the moon to a big pizza pie!
