The language that appeals to the senses in poetry and creates pictures in the head is imagery. Imagery is a figurative language. Imagery is the term used for description that appeals to the five senses of human.

When a writer attempts to describe something so that it appeals to feelings. Imagery aids the unlocking of a person's memory. Imagery usually appeals to all the five human senses, which include the sense of taste, the sense of smell, the sense of hearing, the sense of sight, and the sense of touch.

Most of the imagery, which is used in poetry, is half visual. A basic example of imagery is when someone days are shooting stars. Anyone who sees shooting stars will immediately see the bright star shooting across the sky in a line. Another example of imagery is when someone mentions a ripe strawberry. Anyone reading this will see a bright red strawberry that is ripe fresh, and ready to eat.
