Tattoos

You express your love for the symbolism of
wisdom by having an owl tattooed on your
arm symbolising that wisdom is written on
the tables of your heart - creating a multi-
dimensional symbolism

I objectify my symbols in sound - music and
words - and objects - figurines on my glass
table at home - a magic wand attached to
my bed, a shimmering butterfly and pearl
strings on a silver stick

A wonderful paper doll and nativity scene
at my bed-side, a crystal lamp as symbol
of self-image in the kitchen - the world is
a big book of symbols, the sun, moon,
wind, flowers and trees

The miniatures pasted on my computer
console - just as well tattoos are not my
chosen means, the skin does not offer
enough space for every symbol
I wish to commemorate
