    Default Similes

    can you explain the smiles i these lines

    1, My yellow shirt would
    fill up like a sail
    and flap
    tugging my criss crossed
    wooden bones and me
    towards seas of cloud

    2. Inside a rose is a kingdom of
    rubies like red raindrops

    3. My hair is like an ocean with
    cal waves tat flow on a beach

    4. As a garden grows with flowers
    English grows with words
    Words that have secret powers
    Words that give joy like bride

    Thanks in advance

    When asking this kind of question, giving your source really does help!

    The first one is from the poem "If I were a kite" by Jaquleine Sweeney.

    Kites have a simple skeleton of crossed wooden pieces, over which are laid light paper skins. As the kite is filled with wind, so it lifts from the ground and rises.
