Imagery

Writing a poem is just like painting Diverse images created with words. A poet paints them while he's thinking, And colors them with the feelings stirred. As the lines breathe forth and touch, A poem may show vivid imagery. A portrait or a landscape, a scene and such A picture is thus framed in poetry. Imagery is a poet's tool, his colors In the mind's canvas that bring pictures. It's in simile, symbolism or metaphor- Figures of speech he uses as partners. Cynthia Buhain-Baello ~~~09.13.17
