    Poem & Epistle: understanding the metaphor’s use

    The Metaphor Much is won or lost with one’s skill and cunning with the blade; if the steel is to make its fatal mark and bend a contender to his humbled knees. The metal should be a well known piece from the gripped handle to the point with a knowledge of it’s double edge; a sharpness that...

    The Metaphorical And The Conceit (part I)

    The Metaphorical And The Conceit As It Speaks In Poetry, And/Or Poetic Prose The common presumption: That the denotative is the dominate thrust of poetry and poetic prose rather than the connotative. But is it so? For the connotative is the fertile ground from which all metaphorical...

    The Curtains

    In the dark, still, sanguine halls, there is a certain rustling. A low, slow, slither like the certain assured sliver of a curtain torn thither and dragged against the sallow walls. Like snakes in fall leaves they rattle, they battle, they clatter without the brush of time, nor wallow in that...

    In the Mist

    mist fills the night— there are no ghosts, just my self and me in mellow light I pause only to listen to rustling in the trees, where secrets like my own might be guarded mystery it’s not for me to know what those might be, it is a comfort just to feel a kindred familiarity (c) Neetu Malik

I’ll start my lesson so listen well and as for meaning - try not to dwell as to why...

    Through thick and thin, through every sin, Through every storm before the win, While shadows lurk and doubt would creep, While hearts would mourn and eyes would weep, Before the storm, remaining calm, With hand in hand, without a qualm, A steadfast stillness despite the clash, Where...
