'theory' may well be a similar word to 'metaphor' in that it has a somewhat different meaning as a technical term as compared to being an everyday word.

My mum says funny things like "Careful! I don't want you falling in the drink!" ... with "the drink" referring to whatever river or ocean I was playing perilously close to. I have a feeling this is not just a mummism but haven't googled it as I should actually be sleeping. In fact, I think she told me where her saying that comes from at one point when I was a kid ... her dad ... Ireland ... bus drivers ... I don't know.

I think I've seen something like "drink" being used to refer to a whirlpool in some kind of cartoon, possibly some Disney comic (Uncle Scrooge? Donald Duck?).

The Atlantic Ocean is often called "the pond" as in the expression "across the pond", though I am not so sure I would call this poetic.

The most commonly used poetic word for sky in Chinese is "穹蒼" which means "dôme bleu" literally.
