SIGNS, SIGNING, SIGNALS, SIGNATURES ...

THE PIC? 'REVERSAL' REALLY CAUGHT MY EYE!





SIGNS


© - Tom Hyland - 6/12/12


Sometimes Signs Are Omens ...
Sometimes Good Ones ..
Others ... NOT!

A Sign Can Be a Symbol ... Or an Icon ...
Like - on Your Dashboard ... or Puter!
Or on the Roadside ... a Picto-Graph - Perhaps?

Signs Can Be Huge Billboards ...
Or Teensie-Weensie ‘Mini’ Guys ...
Like - on Your Cell-Phone ...

Many Road-Signs Are Warnings ...
STOP! CAUTION! SLOW DOWN!
CURVE AHEAD! BUMP! HUMP! DUMP!

Then, There Are Positive Signs ...
A Smile! A Grin! A Hug! A Kiss!
An A+ On a Test!

Also, There Are Electrical, or Battery Signs ...
Consider ‘The NEON LIGHTS’ of Broadway ...
Or Times Square’ ... Both in NYC!

And, of Course, There’s the Myriad of Traffic Signals ...
GREEN = GO! AMBER = CAUTION! RED = STOP!
Let’s Not Forget those DAMNED ‘Camera Enforced’ MUV’VAS!

Directional Signs - ARROWS - Construction Ahead ...
These Are Usually Battery-Operated ...
NO LEFT TURN! NO U-TURN! NO RIGHT TURN!

‘Signs, Signs, Everywhere ... And Not Much Time To THINK!’

Your Poor Eyeballs Could Get Blood-Shot ...
But, Somehow ... Those Lil ‘Grey-Cells ...
Usually Keep It All Straight ...

Thank Goodness ... And GOD!

There Are Other Types of: Signs, Symbols, And Signals ...
Perhaps Just as Evident, or Physical, in Nature ...
Signs of Spring ... Crocus’ ... Robins ... Buds ...

‘THUNDER’ ,,, Is a Sign of a Storm Brewing ...
In Medicine, ‘VITAL SIGNS’ Are Critical ...
And ... Lest We Be Remiss ... We Do SIGN Our Names!

Then, There Is ‘SIGNING’ ...
SIGN LANGUAGE for The Deaf ...
Using a Formal Use of Hands ...

How About Song Lyrics?
“It’s A Sign of The Times” by Petula Clark ...
“The Sign” - 1993 - by Swedish Band ‘Ace of Bass’ ...

PER ... Wikipedia:

“The Way a Sign Signifies Is Called Semiosis ...
Which Is a Topic of Semiotics and Philosophy of Language.
Ways of Relating Signs to Their Objects are Called Modes of Signification.”

‘Gestures’ Are Signs ... Also ‘Body Language’ ...
How About All Those ‘Bumper-Stickers’ You’ve Seen?
“ I ( HEART ) My ... ‘Watch-A-Ma-Call-It’!

Just to Mention One Ominous ... OMEN ...
In ‘Papa’ Ernest Hemingway’s Writings ... ‘WATER’ ...
Was Usually a SIGN That Something BAD Was About to Happen!

Got’ta SIGN OFF Now ... TOODLE-LOO!

© - TKH.

P.S. ... ALMOST FORGOT THAT REALLY 'FAMOUS' SIGN ...

"KEEP OFF THE GRASS!"

THAT ... DEAR FRIENDS ...

IS 4 MATLACKS BENEFIT !!!

You forgot about those mysterious things that pop up in green fields and scare the bejeebies out of those who believe in extraterrestrial invasion and body snatching.

I read the handwriting on the wall in the Egyptian Museum–a sign of our times.

And as I travel about our sad old world today, I see far too many ominous signs that we're in for a very bad time. Oddly enough, my poem today is called 'Hell on Earth.'
