A Cella for Thoughts

How do we create phrases that stick in the mind?
Islands of concepts separated by brine
Enough salinity allow us to float
From one simple thought to another –

Language, a tool, forged by a miracle
Allowing words to connect along a smooth spherical…
Thought process, a blending of – links! Chaos
Encumbered by its collection in a naos.

Yes, a Cella for thoughts
Those which the Greek and Roman have brought
Open to all, regardless of speech
The innate ability all humans will reach.

Addendum: And probably the dolphin,
That’s why they’re the smartest animal, not us.
