Rum’s piece is asking the reader, bayou are given Wings, Why would you choose to crawl as a way Of traveling throughout life. This is done using imagery, tone, and a metaphor. In the poem, the imagery found is formed by the words ‘Wings” and “crawl. ” The connotation associated with ‘Wings” in this piece is positive and free, while “crawl” is associated with negative and gloomy emotions. While developing the imagery, this technique also establishes a tone that is encouraging, yet also curious. It poses a question or the reader that leads to deeper thoughts and interpretations.
All of this is created by a metaphor, that uses wings to describe a path to a better life, and crawling as a way of elite where you’re barely getting by. From these literary devices, it can be interpreted that Rum is trying to tell the reader that when great opportunities are offered, such as those presented in the Islamic religion, it is beneficial for them to be seized. The painter forms the same themes using similar methods. The theme is established by the imagery and mood. In the painting it illustrates a man “on top f the world” as he stands triumphantly on a mountain. Sing this imagery, a mood of success and accomplishment is developed. The painter utilizes both literary devices to generate themes that the reader can relate to. Both Rum and the painter construct this universal theme of seizing opportunities to reach a higher potential. Imagery, metaphors, tone, connotation, and mood let the poet and painter achieve this goal. Although Rum adds religious perspectives to his work, while the poet has to convey a theme through a picture, both pieces use the same tools to establish their meanings.
