The Binary of the Mind

By John Aldred

An incident plants a seed,
Nourished by imagination
The seed flourishes
And is now a flower
On a page of verse.

Have now an understanding read
About an incident,
A question asked
On the origin of words
On a page.

The incident becomes a need
To be conveyed,
In answer to the question
To the picture, there
On a page.

The incident or deed
Interpreted
Coloured letters
Litter
The page.

Simplistic indeed
This explanation
Of cortex impulses
Binary speed
Seed, need
Now tree'd.
