    Perhaps set in metaphors. Poetry is my religion. Religion is my poetry. And understanding encompasses
    both. (Report) Reply

    What i understand here is that there is no comparison, poetry and religion are not synonymous to each other but they are one and the same because both work in metaphors, and to understand both we should have the skill of decoding the message by opening the metaphors. God does not like spoon-feeding the devotees by saying everything in open words, rather says there are signs, and symbols for those who keep sense and willingness to ponder on...poetry is also open to interpretations, that's why it speaks for all in all times! ! !

    Metaphors is the heart of poetry and religion. That's why all poets adore them. In a way poetry is our salvation. lovely thought Abdul. (Report) Reply
