Allusion within three stanzas of poetry.
...natural, beautiful symmetry,
piston and pollen in petals of unity
attracting birds and insects fluently.
No words can explain this industry
within its rock-a-bye cradle diversity
world of uncultured purity.
Quiet winds dance in obscurity
evoking visions clairvoyantly
minds finally cured from alluring lunacy.
Poetic Devices 201 - Lesson 7 - Allusion
The first stanza alludes to flowers of the fields, which are here today and gone tomorrow; the second stanza alludes to the natural networking of the industry --- reproduction of flowers; and finally, the third stanza alludes to the blowing winds dancing amidst this beauty beyond the senses, a sure cure from the drum of mundane lunacy.
