Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Petroglyphs Tell Carved Secrets


petroglyphs 40,000
27,000 10,000 years old
speak all petroglyphs

tell carved secrets
astronomical markers
maps all symbolic

follow mists mythic
petroglyph maps trails
symbols communicate

time distances traveled
local terrain form rivers
landforms geographic

features rock speaks
hear deep carved meanings
images deep cultural

religious significance
in societies descendants
listening to symbolic

timeless ritual languages
pictographs transcend languages
may take form as diagrams

morph represent statistical
data in pictorial sign forms
varied in color size numbers

to indicate change
significant cut changes
in time river flows

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
