Comparative Poetry

Minimum length: 12 lines

 This assignment comes in three parts:

 (1) Describe an object or scene that particularly interest you without making any comparisons of one thing to another. Rewrite it, if necessary, until it is as free of comparisons as possible.

 (2) Take the same object or scene and use it to describe one of your parents. In other words, indulge yourself in comparisons.

 (3) Write a poem which, though it is a description of the object or scene above, is really about your parents
