March Pi-Archimedes #18


they’re back again
beautiful narcissus, daffadowndillies, jonquils,
by any other name smell
awful…maybe it’s just me…I think they stink!

Turns out, it is just me! Daffodils and they’re cousins are actually a lot like cilantro. Some people find them quite fragrant. Me, not so much. Daffodils nor cilantro! I’ll pass on both!!!! 🤣

The Pi-Archimedes verse is:
○ a hexastich, a poem in 6 lines.
○ measured by the number of words in each line 3-1-4-1-5-9 to match the numerical sequence of the first six digits of Pi.
○ unrhymed.

Still Life in February

Dearest Julia,
It has been unseasonably warm for February. The buds have started popping from the tips of tree branches and the brown grass is greening. To my dismay the daffodils have decided to peek through the soil toward the warmth of the sun. Just this afternoon, one decided to open up in full bloom!

I know how you love the daffodils my dear. And I fear they may not be here when you come in the Spring. So I took a photograph for you.

I will see you soon. My love to you and kitty, Penelope.

Until Spring,
