Thoughts Provoking

THOUGHTS PROVOKING

 Sometimes they
are
irrational.

This form is “Piku” ~ taken from the mathematical term “pi” (which is 3.14) and the poetic form “haiku” (a 3-line poem of a certain syllabic length). This form is three lines, following the syllabic pattern of 3-1-4 (in reference to the math term “pi”).  Get it!?  🙂  And…today is “Pi Day” (March 14th — 3.14) Get it!?  🙂

So–Happy Pi Day!

Bury Your Head

An extended PiKu to close out PAD 2015,  30 days, 30 poems…
and my 1,000th poetry post!

 

BURY YOUR HEAD

in my chest
‘til
your tears subside.
Let
the pain slowly fade
away with each breath, each exhaled sigh.
Bury
your head in my chest, ‘til
you feel the safety
of my arms’
embrace. Let the pain
fade away with each tear-filled goodbye.
