Word picture in poetry

A picture can be made from the words that appeal to the senses. These senses are of touch, hearing, taste, sight and smell. Using one or more of these you can see,taste and even touch while you read or hear the poem being read. Here is an example: Then ablack eye is seen at hand, with protruded lens, in such abowl tingle, that resembles afused seed inside the womb. Look at these words: black, protruded, fused, bowl. What are they telling you? This is the way how word pictures are formed from words that appeal to senses.
