PATHOS SUBLIME September 26, 2006

Filed under: Poetry — jojanoski @ 4:22 pm

This is a poem I wrote for the Whimsybuggs Writing Workshop. It is called a Pi, sixteen-line poem representing the number Pi with (not surprisingly) the following number of words per line:  3, 1, 4, 1, 5, 9, 2, 6, 5, 3, 5, 8, 9, 7, 9, 3


Rustling soft canvas
dynamic breezy motion magic
fruits on the limb swaying
in rhythm with mother branches and green leaf cousins
in joy
drinking in sunny sky rainy juices
growing sweeter with each waltz
dancing in tandem
with nature stepping then bowing
in light splendorous ballroom of green forest gods
through swift winds of delicious perfection dipped fruity pathos
apples in trees swaying in soft breezes
sweetness demanding just one kiss of scrumptious pulp dripping
down your chin.
