Poets vary from one to the other in giving shapes to their imagination so that they let their feelings, ideas, observations, dreams, experiences, memories and so on known to the readers in their own ways. The poem is the result of both imagination and creation in sweet synthesis. It is like the lovely lotus coming out of mud and water. The lotus blooms and shines for the delight of the viewers sprouting from mud and water.
