Semiology is a critical movement based on scientific and methodical aspects applying for the aesthetic conception of poetic texts and deciphering complex semantic codes which are difficult to be decoded through a simple and unilateral look. Using all powerful and effective cognitive tools in hand, semiology has approached the area of literary researches. Its shades of analysis have been spread over contemporary Arabic poems so that semiology researchers can unveil aesthetic nature hidden in the text and develop a different understanding about it. Meanwhile, following this issue in Mohammad Afifi Matar`s poem by applying the semiology method, it not only results in careful scrutiny towards his poetic expression but also helps determine hidden points and latent secrets. The present research aimed at investigating the exemplum of the ode Silent Sun Beam. The major theme of the exemplum is famine and poverty, being comprised of a descriptive report by which social events are indirectly viewed from the aspect of nature. Using its dominant narrative structure, it tried to find words and combinations which could lead the exemplum texture to move from textual areas to poetic aesthetics in a dramatic way, that is, dark and distraught place. Calling for natural words and personifying them made the treasures of exemplum`s vocabularies, Moreover, the textual aesthetics announced the forms of intertextuality combined with folklore beliefs about capabilities of natural elements to change situations.
