Abdul Wahab

Sign and Symbol

Sign is more direct
Too much indirect is symbol
But both indicate and help us to communicate
So, once symbol wrote to sign
But sign made out of it, nothing

You are a most unfortunate
And I am the worse owner of fate
How can I tell you anything direct?

Read my eyes
Look at my heart
They both tell you something indirectly
And that is also in a nut shell
How can I tell you anything direct?

    Read my eyes
    Look at my heart
    Face is the index of the mind. Symbolism is nicely presented in the poem. Thank you. (Report) Reply
