Language Feature
Palm Tree
Hula skirts dancing all by themselves
He is an tank, tough and tenacious, passing over
A metaphor is when you do not use the words like and as. E.G it was a stormy night the wind blew straight through the doors.
A kennel full of shaggy dogs straining on an lead
He is an athlete. In the race to be the slowest he excels
Something or an animal like it is alive.E.G The palm tree danced through the clouds.

Palm Tree
Metaphor Example
All these things until the clouds darken, the wind gets stronger, the storm gets nearer.
He is a hobo, his worldly goods humped upon his back
Explain what you think it means
I think it means that they are trying to explain what the palm tree looks like when there is some kind of storm.
They are trying to get the reader to know that the snail crawls along with an shell on its back.
