what are some similes?
2 Answers | add yours
Similes are comparisons between two things that are usually nouns. Often, the words 'like' or 'as' are used to compare them.
If you're looking for actual examples of similies, here are some common ones that can help you get an idea of what you need:
horse as fast as a car
flowers petals like silk
sky as gray as ash
smile like the sun
I hope this helped!
