How many words or phrases can you come up with to describe the color of the sky? How about faded denim? Or pumpkin, at sunset? Iron, before a storm?

For this challenge, see how many words or phrases you can produce for each of these:

* the color of the sky
* the taste of sugar
* the smell of rain
* the feel of air
* the sound of laughter
* the shape of eyes

This is a great exercise when you don’t have much time. And if you keep thinking up words to describe the sight, sound, taste, feel and smell of various items, you can compile your own thesaurus of the senses—a wonderful reference when you need interesting words for your fiction, essays, poems or other projects.
