Well it's like writing a poem. You use metaphors in poems and it is looked as figurative language. But in your case you are describing but not directly to being strong like a palm tree. Is there a personal experience where you have felt really strong?
Maybe use that. Another idea would be to use a emotion(s) to describe a palm tree. Really make it your own.
Not the answer you are looking for? Search for more explanations.
Does that help any?
mm yes a little lol
okay, what is it about the palm tree you really like?
how strong it is
Think of the strengths it has against harsh conditions, what it's used for and why it's used that way. Maybe even think of what doesn't make it strong.
Why do you think it is strong?
I apologize, I don't think I am giving you the help you need.
Thank you for the metal but which was the best answer? My last comment before this one?
One idea would be to use an analogy of how palm trees are often uniquely able to survive very strong tropical storms (even hurricane force storms). It might be fairly straight forward to find photo or even news video of this for use as a visual demonstration. An example of a source for information this is here:
Q: Why don’t palm trees blow down in strong wind as often as other trees do?
A: I thought this was going to be an easy one, and I was prepared to pad it out with a lot of cheap jokes about my masters.
Instead, it got kind of complicated, so I had to cut out the jokes, which is just as well because I would have had to explain them to my masters anyway.
This is the deal: Palm trees are monocots as opposed to other trees, such as paloverdes or oaks, which are dicots.
Palm TreesKim Stone, a horticulturist at the Boyce Thompson Arboretum near Superior, went to some pains to explain the differences to me. He is a very patient man.
Basically, monocots, which include grasses, orchids, irises and other stuff, have embryos that sprout straight up in a single shoot, instead of up and out with branches, as dicots do.
A palm grows straight up, gaining its height on overlapping leaf bases. Hence, it doesn’t have branches to catch the wind. A big, branchy Norfolk Island pine, on the other hand, would just as soon blow over as look at you.
If you took a cross section of a palm tree, you would find a number of brownish spots instead of the growth rings like you’d find in a dicot.
These are bundles of vascular strands that carry nutrients up and down the tree. It’s like a thick steel cablewoven from a lot of smaller steel wires. This is starting to make my brain hurt.
Anyway, each strand in these vascular bundles is connected to the root system. Dicots have woody roots, and in most dicots, 80 percent of the root system is within the top two feet of soil.
Anyone who has ever tried to dig up a palm can tell you it has fibrous roots that not only fan out to great distances but also go down deep. Like to somewhere down around the tectonic plates. So all this combines to give a palm tree a very solid base in the ground and a very supple trunk that will bend in the wind without breaking.
