Summary/Abstract: The essay expands upon Lesley Saunders‘ poetry, approached via varied cognitive structures/conceptual metaphors and how these enrich readers‘ dimensions of experience. Starting from the assumption that ontological metaphors - the most significant type of George Lakoff ‘ s conceptual metaphors - are grounded by virtue of systematic correlates with our experience, we will then focus on various experiential poems belonging to Lesley Saunders through various cognitive theoretical lenses in order to reveal how they fit and enrich perceptions of the world we live in.
