Imagery is certainly a powerful tool in the writing repertoire of all poets. When finely tuned, imagery will deepen a reader’s connection to a piece of writing. When a poet is able to paint a picture in the mind of their readers, when their readers are gently but vividly guided into the world of the poet’s imagining, the poem has a more lasting effect.
This poem, written by Kantananda, is an elegant example of imagery at work. Let these simple yet powerful words bring you into that beautiful bhava!
