Prompt: Symbolic Poetry

Sorry for the late prompt! We went out of town unexpectedly yesterday and had a wrangle with the phone company earlier today.

For this week's

Totally Optional

prompt, write a poem in which something or things represents some other thing or things. You could use an object to symbolize an idea. Or a taste to represent a feeling. Or a color to stand in for an animal.

You can let the poem make clear what's being represented. Or not. Invite your readers to use their imaginations.
