Symbolic Box


A symbol is like a box

it holds things in clusters.

Pictures, / feelings, / concepts and thoughts

Gathered round a symbol,

Like people they muster.


And then these boxes fit into other boxes,

symbols within a symbol.

Each symbol quite unique,

and totally individual.


Boxes within boxes,

the symbols grow and grow.

An ever expanding process that seeks ‘understanding,’

in the process to know.
