Pictographs Shape Shift

pictographs 7000 to 9000
years old appearing as
language communication

as ideogram conveys
pictorial resemblance
to a physical object

pictographs writing graphic
systems characters pictorial
picture drawings now speaks

pictorial paint drawings
originate cuneiform basis
hieroglyphic writings

drawings ethnic morphs
as read phonetic letters
as determinative rhymes

pre-writing becomes
pictograms ideograms
cuneiform hieroglyphics

communication writings
transcend pictorial images
morph into set sign shapes

pictographs hands
shape shift styles
create read words

read applied set meanings
read mental extension images
remember voice chant sounds
