i like the classical epic metaphors of virgil (thus and homer to some extent); using imagery of wild animals (well barely any animals were domesticated at the time anyway). sometimes catachresis can be effective (as in homer's wine-red sea - something which has baffled historians and literary critics to this day); that is, complementing imagery with something quite unconnected with it. for example, if talking about a storm at sea, you could say 'the loutish winds were battering the ocean'. the word 'loutish', although conveying something along the lines of the aggression intended to be signified, would be more often found in imagery of young men.
