Amy,

A simile uses the terms 'like' or 'as',

so your first sentence could be 'A VW like a field of flowers - green and painted with pink and yellow daises.

A metaphor uses a descriptive term, for example,

'English was a dark forest to me, but after my classes it has become a sunny field.'

Hope this helps!

Hello Amy, welcome to English Forums!

I'm not quite sure what the question is – are your sentences your examples of similes and metaphors? Or did you want someone to suggest similes that would suit your sentences?

See you,

Hey there Ms Susan Stewart

Thank you so much Emotion: smile I know what a smilie, and a metaphor are. I'm just not good at creating them esp metaphors Emotion: sad

Yes it really helped, thank you.

Amy.
Hello there Mr P.

Thank you for the warm welcome.

Oh yes, sorry I wasnt clear at all.

Well the sentences above are not examples of similes and/or metaphors. Our english teacher asked us to create a metaphor and/or a simile for each of the following descriptions:

1. Umbrellas popping out during a sudden downpour.

2. A friend who bursts angrily into your room.

3. A green Volkswagen with pink and yellow daisies pasted on it.

4. An ambulance speeding through traffic with its siren wailing.

5. A skyscraper the top of which is lost in fog.

6. A thin old woman in a ragged dressed.

I came up with a metaphor for the first one, and another metaphor for the 4th one, I'm working on the 2nd one. I would appreciate it if someone suggest some metaphors and/or similies for me.

Thanks Mr P for your time Emotion: smile
give me a metaphor for liking pink
