Salient Works

 These are the salient works that teach us memories.
They are the arch and they are the ark.
They span and float.
Words are from the borrowed tongue of The Ancients.

They are a signal of the senses acting like pools of light.
In a biosphere of dark noise some of us are torch bearers.
Because light illuminates the subconscious
Like the dawning of the day.

When light brings sights of wonder and delight.
Words are after are a nudge.
The actual direction of thought
And the destination is yours to own.

These then are the silent symbols of silent thoughts.
They are a physical transmission of meaning and sense.
They represent conceptual thinking.
They are the sequential record of a life.
