Many of us in the Mid-Atlantic are experiencing fierce winds today. It’s the first time in my memory that school was canceled due to wind. The neighbors’ trash cans are scattered across the road, and I can already hear the sound of wood chippers around the corner. There is an unusual, eerie undercurrent that can be heard as gusts gather speed. This is a time for stretching my brain with a metaphor challenge! I’d love to read/hear your metaphors for wind, too!
- The wind is a percussionist banging pots and pans on my roof.
- The wind is a tidal wave colliding with the trees.
- The wind is a bullet train heading this way.
- The wind is a lion tamer cracking his whip.
- The wind is a trainer stretching trees muscles.
- The wind is breath of giants.
- The wind is an invisible ocean.
The wind is a . . .
What is your metaphor for wind?

The wind is a branch snatcher. We know when our winds pick up because the ground will be littered with branches.
I like that metaphor! Yes – our yard is covered–problem of old Silver Maple trees.
I love your list! Another slicer said it sounded like a freight train. My tomorrow slice is a little about the wind so check it out tomorrow!
I also wrote about the wind today, and your post makes me think more poetically!
I like the tidal wave and the lion tamer- two different qualities of wind.
I’m going to have to think of some of my own…
I’m TERRIBLE with metaphors. The wind bulldozed its way through my yard… The wind had been a merciless thief, leaving behind only the most pitiful of leaves… Okay. Brain spent. Lol!
I love this post!
The wind is a woman scorned, slapping my cheeks and pulling my hair.
The wind is the energy of children left unchecked! Hahaha, love the format and the idea, thanks.
I love the list of metaphors- what a great classroom challenge! I wrote that the wind is nature’s heavy metal concert.
