Breaching the seen and savoring the unseen unifying principle, is the essence of poetic writing. A descriptive prose that is evocative of the sensual reality is great, but the prose that goes beyond the apparent and the known, and lays down a relationship between things unrelated is sheer TRANSMUTATION of PERCEPTION.
Very few have seen and fewer still have expressed it in intelligible ways. When a WRITER, correlates images that do not have connection, but expresses it in a way that evokes a response from the reader, his mission is complete. A poet is born.
How many could have brought out poetry in such terms:-
SHE SAW HER LORD
That is scrumptious poetry. None but one endowed with poetic sense could link the water in the wedding at Cana turning into wine by Lord Jesus Christ, thus. I have not read a more succinct poem ever.
