Pandemic Poem #57 / Homo Significans

I heard this term on a podcast and it intrigued me. Now I have a term for something I have always known – that humans are meaning makers, and that making meaning and communicating it to others is the essence of being human. Something that is so much hard to do from lockdown.

Homo Significans

on waking
in the absence of sleep
even in dreams
meaning making
symbolic soup
