towards yearning

The element at bottom is cloth. The element on top was originally two sets of intersecting lines. The combination indicates a long piece of fabric with fine cross-stitches. Scarce and rare are associated meanings, via "fine." Desire is an extended meaning, in the sense of a longstanding desire of a kind rarely obtained.

adds sun/day to suggest the drying out of a cloth by means of exposure to the sun. Thus the meaning dry out.

adds eye to suggest "gaze at a fine, dimly visible object." Yearn for is an associated meaning (yearn for something far off, dimly visible).

  1. beautiful Roxana, how I love these images especially the second-it is so rich in its complexity,-the light of desire shining through the complexity of the dream fabric.
