Poetic Imagery

It is interesting to me that so many people can have so many different interpretations of poems, and of the images they portray.  Some of my favorite tweets this past week from our class about imagery are:

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” data-conversation=”none” lang=”en”><p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”><a href=”https://twitter.com/FS_Ford”>@FS_Ford</a&gt; into another world or into another state of mind.  Or just another part of the world it has never seen before <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/vizpoem?src=hash”>#vizpoem</a&gt; <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/13ways?src=hash”>#13ways</a></p>&mdash; Ryan Cooper (@Coop9brazil) <a href=”https://twitter.com/Coop9brazil/status/609055121809489920″>June 11, 2015</a></blockquote>

Not sure why these embedded tweets don’t come through correctly, any suggestions (I am clicking “embed tweet” and then copying the link) but it doesn’t actually show the tweet.
