Poetry is the organization of the poetic images around one one more theme as forming completeness according to imagist socialist poetry. As it can be understood from this description, the main unit of the poetry is poetic images, because poetry is an autonomous metalanguage developing in natural language. That can be occured by deformig the syntax consciously and reforming with autonomous system by poetic images. Poetic images convert natural language, enlarge its borders and provide new expression possibilities.

A single word of the natural language has a fix, stereotyped reflection at every person who percepts. So, a single word of the natural language does not have the striking association property as a poetic image has.

Poetic images are established by making anology between “at least” two or more words having semantic distance and the main mission of the poetic images is providing a striking expression possibilty for transmiting the meaning by association.

As poetry is written by poetic images and a single word can not be a poetic image and a poetic image is established with at least two words, the main unit of the poetry is poetic image, not individual words. So, we can easily say that the poetry is written by poetic images, not individual words. The words are like protons, neutrons and electrons if we suppose that the poetic image is an atom. The compenents of the atom can not be found individually in the nature, and they can only have a functional existence by forming completeness to establish the poetic image. In the same way, the words gain poetic functionallity in poetry as being organized to establish the poetic image.

A poetic image is the subjective reflection of the objective reality at the conscience of the poet esthetically. This artistic reflection is not a one to one reflection as a mirror reflection, but it is the externalising of the objective reality with percepting it and then transforming to a new reality by the conscience of the poet.

As the poetic image is externalized by the poet, it is added to the objective reality, so poetry and also all art works are esthetical intervention to the objective reality with created new reality which can be called as artistic reality.
The externalized poetic image reaches to the conscience of the reader as a part of the objective reality and it is absorbed by the reader according to his/her conscience and esthetical perception level. So, the poetry is reproduced at the conscience of every reader with differences and this process creates awareness about theme of the poem and refines the esthetical perception of the reader. Then, this poem makes a contribution to the personal transformation of the reader and also to the other readers like this. So, that poem makes a contribution to the social transformation according to its power.

Poetry is an artistic way to change the World step by step as making contribution to the objective reality with artistic reality.
