The Origin of Meaning

early man

uttering noises imitating animalistic sounds-

ancient sound symbols in recognizable syllables and tone

resonating as to what is seen, giving meaning to what is heard

repeating vocal noises… like puppet strings dancing

8 notes plucked from the reflection of hearing

bellowing in volume for emphatic direction

tonal discernment giving reality a voice

glorious word-songs… echoing through the ages

crude language and pitch arises, vibrating in agreement

some with deep baritone crest, others sweet feminine tenor valleys

the nuances of surfing down every dark alley

describing everything that is, imagining all that could be named

talking, never looking back

creating a spoken world of cooperative dominance

perhaps man’s greatest leap

of many leaps forward
