Can you use personification and then refer to the inanimate thing as a part of your body?

For example:

The mournful hills, full of violent rivers, cried my lost uncle.

It sounds like an odd thing to do, so I was wondering if I could use hills to refer to my face or something along that line.

  • That sentence isn't talking about a part of your body; it seems to be talking about violent rivers being at least partly formed from your uncle's body, and being cried by the hills. But it's all metaphorical, so it doesn't matter. – Jason Bassford Aug 11 '20 at 3:49

    First. What do you mean for this to say? – Zan700 Aug 11 '20 at 3:56
