spring dance

spring dance

around me
blushes green


trembles softly
there in the wings
even as frost
blankets the loam


darling daffodils,
peepers and bluebirds
sing your happy songs
winter’s end is near
and spring won’t be long


As busy as I have been this year with work and caretaking, I could not let Pi Day pass without giving a new Pi inspired poetry form a go! It’s called a Cadae and incorporates the first 5 digits (3.1415). See the details below:

There are two styles of Cadae. (I chose the second style for today.)

1. strophic, written in 5 strophes of fixed but varied length.
S1 - 3 lines
S2 - 1 line
S3 - 4 lines
S4 - 1 line
S5 - 5 lines

2. Incorporating a syllabic element to the strophes in style #1.
S1 - 3 lines with 3 syllables per line
S2 - 1 line with 1 syllable in the line
S3 - 4 lines with 4 syllables per line
S4 - 1 line with 1 syllable in the line
S5 - 5 Lines with 5 syllables per line

March Pi-Archimedes #14 – Happy Pi Day!

Happy Pi Day
(I like strawberry rhubarb or lemon merengue…)

I’m enthralled by
spirals, golden sequences and
math applied in pictures, chaos
give me art, i’m lost from A to B


It’s no secret that I am lacking when it comes to higher math concepts, but my artistic side can certainly appreciate the beauty of math applied in art, nature and cool poetry forms like the Pi-Archimedes! Happy Pi Day! 😉

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.
