Day 17: De-personification – Often in poems, authors will give animate qualities to inanimate objects to add color to an image or scene. See if you can write a poem about something animate (like a person, an animal, or an insect) and describe him/her/it using inanimate objects.
He stands totem-like
unflinching and unchanging
to the world around him,
wooden in nature,
wooden in beliefs,
Unlike the branches he was formed from,
he does not bend,
but he does not break, either.
Stoically he smugly stands,
that the joke is engrained within him.
