Go To

Round, like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel
Like a snowball down a mountain, or a carnival balloon
Like a carousel that's turning, running rings around the moon
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping past the minutes of its face
And the world is like an apple, whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind.

Tropes that are about pictograms (shapes, symbols, runes, glyphs, insignias, icons, and signs), either about specific ones, or using them in general.

Now even though these tropes can include symbolism, there has to be an actual picture symbol involved to count.
