The main idea is you should this of a metaphor like a comparison without the words "is like" (an example that comes in my head now is "snow, that flour falling from the sky, is ... "). More on metaphors (including a few examples if you have patience to read) here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/metaphors Hope it helps :)
