Art of Symbol


Whether meaningful, or just beautiful
Whether easy to understand, whether full of mystery
A simply shape, or a detailed design
Symbol is created

From nature, from imagination
From dream, from experience
Whether adaptable, whether unchanged
Symbol is taken

For secrecy, for practical
The color, the code
To unite, to protect
Symbol is used

God's sign, devil's mark
Good luck, bad omen
A clear help, or a hidden warning
Symbol is interpreted

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

"Oh Day of Fire and Sun"
by Sara Teasdale

Oh day of fire and sun,
Pure as a naked flame,
Blue sea, blue sky and dun
Sands where he spoke my name;

Laughter and hearts so high
That the spirit flew off free,
