Poetry is a form of literary art in which language is used for its aesthetic and evocative qualities in addition to, or in lieu of, its apparent meaning. (as taken from Wikipedia)

Examples for a feeling poem:

Peace is white like a single snowflake
drifting to the ground...

Boredom is gray like a dull day.
It sits on a shelf
like a can of cat food waiting to be bought.

Anger is red like tomato soup
bubbling over on the stove.

Blank examples:
(feeling) is (color)_ like a _

(feeling) is_ (color)_ like a

Simple rules for first draft poetry:
Don't worry about spelling
Don't worry about being neat.
Don't worry about erasing.
Don't worry about rhyme.
