Master of Metaphor

Through metaphor, an idea may be translated into an image and perceived through our senses. Sometimes the best way to understand a thing is to know what it looks like, what it feels like, or sounds like. Metaphors are not just for writing poems, it is a way of relating one thing to another vividly.  In general, by thinking metaphorically people can give meaning to the world around them.The best quality for a poet is to be a master of metaphor.(photo by myjajo)
