    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

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
