ere’s broadly two types of imagery- abstract and concrete.

Abstract is conceptual, so thing like love, victory, kindness- ideas that aren’t necessarily grounded in the real world.

Concrete is things you can physically feel, touch and experience. So a rose is a concrete image when love isn’t. (although maybe you canTwist a Cliché by finding a new aspect of the rose.)

Concrete imagery tends to be better if you use more Specific Detail you use.

A good way to focus on the concrete is to use The Five Senses
