Pictographs

Mayan pictographs 
count down the centuries,
count down the solar years,
count down the lunar months,
the risings of Venus,
the days until the end.     

And then…
the calender resets

  1. The pictographs tell some interesting stories. It fascinates me how they counted using astological time charts many years ago.

  2. I like the picture you put with my poem. It would have been if you’d asked my permission first though.
