This love poem is full of brilliant metaphorical imagery
Debate Rounds (4)
"Oh beloved thy lover around that mole black upon the cheek of thee doth circle with my eyes doth long to circle with the tongue of I around that single point on thy cheek be the centre fromst which I trace out with tongues tip the circumference of that single pointed mole black"
there is the surface meaning but also a hiddein meaning to the perceptive reader lines
"Please illuminate me on the "brilliant metaphorical imagery" that can be perceived in that quote"
in sufi poetry the mole is a metaphor for
"The MOLE on the cheek is the point of indivisible Unity"
as well as
"Night, Tresses, Mole, Kohl: Transcendent aspect of God."
if you have read the poem and got the hidden meaning you will see also the mole is a metaphor for the hole of the cunt
"I trace out with tongues tip the circumference of that single pointed mole black"" is a metaphor for cunnilingus
"Please continue with another example."
take the mention of the hyacinth curl
"oh beloved in thy black hyacinth curl all infidels to Muslim proselytes wouldst be oh beloved in thy black hyacinth curl ensnared art I in the spider web of thy panther black curl as thee in wantonness do shake the curl fromst thy moon-like face that curls around those pouting full red pulpy lips"
3 levels of meaning
1) the girls curl
2) the sufi curl
"CURLS and TRESSES mean plurality veiling the face of Unity from its lovers"
if you have followed the poem
3)at the hidden level the curl is the girl pubic hair around her moon-like face ie her cunt-as hinted at by the metaphor pouting full red pulpy lips
Maybe my appreciation of the metaphor is lacking with so wide a divide between cultures, but please continue with another example.
"but please continue with another example.
alas time runs out con as this round is for the summing up
as I have shown the various metaphors in the poem
I have backed up my assertion
thus I should win the debate
but I will give con another example
The DOWN is the world of pure spirits which is nearest to Divinity
"Oh beloved the down on thy milk smooth skin be like green meadows from the unseen world beloved thy cheek be the divine to me that divine which for which the all the worlds I did pine that down round thy pinkish spongy flesh I did search and have now did find"
I will let you work out the 3 levels of meaning
