>>Religion Is A Metaphor

Poets use metaphor in poetry
To tell one thing to mean another
Behind the curtain under the layers
They hide thousand meanings
Same is the case with God
In His poetry
He uses religion as a metaphor
To bring out intricacies
To tell different stories
Under each vehicle
He kept wonder
Behind each symbol
He hides astounding treasure
O man! Do not quarrel over it
For your life has been used as a tenor

    Indeed God is truth and His truth is poetry.

  • Danny Draper (7/4/2013 3:50:00 PM)

    Indeed messages are told o'er and o'er and riddles wrung and for truths a burial held as persecution looks on, but direct and open language does not engender mystery or perception of depth, real or perceived, or the beauty of language to assist and comfort and deal with life and its challenges and confrontations and sad and happy twists and turns and such writings are a comfort as they are beauty, indeed didactic and offer sanctuary, a metaphor is that hidden meaning. A fine write with interesting observations.

    excellent write Wahab. metaphors and parables are found throughout the Bible. So it is with poets. this is why poets are read differently. Always searching searching for the true meaning.
