Children, a Pi Poem January 30, 2007

Filed under: Poetry — jojanoski @ 9:28 am

A Pi poem - Word scheme like Pi with the following number of words per line:


Rollicking laughter pervades
I heed the call
entirely in their noisy direction.

Their giggles trickle a path direct to my heart
in symphony
with happier times remembered deep inside
my weary throbbing soul space

relinquishing my adulthood
for a refreshing youthful sip
sliding down my throat in unstoppable wild giggles
from clear glistening waters dripping in sun-drenched smiles

like trickling songs cleansing my jaded soul
long weighed down by lofty schemes disguised as dreams,
not worth remembering.

    As much as it pains my curmudgeon’s soul to admit it, I like this. The phrase “lofty schemes disguised as dreams” define the piece. Congratulations! You’ve created an answer to the time-honored reflection of Σ Cofactor Matrix log secant= i heh heh heh

    Oooooh, I may have to try this one. I could write a Pi poem about pie…
    Nah, couldn’t top what you’ve done here (and I could never remember pie past two decimal points). I agree with Bob (except for the part at the end of his comment I don’t get, duh), esceptional work.

    Bob, dang it! Can’t you see Ozy and me scratching our heads? What the heck does that matrix thingie mean?

    You’ve done well in both word count AND fluidity. And the ending packs a punch. ^_^ Remarkable piece here. Cheers.
