Image And Metaphor - Poem by Barry Middleton

the meadow in spring
is an image and a metaphor

the yellow dandelion
the newness of life itself
breeds the seeds of newer life

the man who sees the meadow
is not a man but is all men

he reflects on the image
so the man is consciousness
the metaphor of the gods

the meadow in spring
is an image without the man

the man without the meadow
is not conscious of the image
the divine metaphor is lost
