A simple worksheet for similes and metaphors.
"The cold fog is like a lozenge to a sore throat As it numbs the pain
I run until my eyes form tears
And my lungs feel like they are about to burst"
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
