    1. Imagery– Imagery refers to the elements of a poem that engage a reader’s senses. Examples- “the smell of the shiuli flowers floats in the air”, “the scent of my mother”, “the blue of the distant sky”, “the stillness of my mother’s gaze”
    2. Enjambment– It is the continuation of a sentence to multiple lines. Every stanza here is an example of enjambment.
    3. Simile– A simile is a figure of speech that directly compares two things. Example- “the scent of the morning service in the temple/ comes to me as the scent of my mother”
