In Tune

I’m content
here
in my own song.
Each
stanza and chorus
harmonizes with the universe
where I’m
forever free to breathe
in all the music
around me.
This gift, of measured
rhythms and rhymes, resonates with
beauty in sunrises and sunsets
composing my melody.

This is written in the mathematical poetry form called Cadae. In this poem, each line’s syllable count corresponds to the first fourteen digits of Pi (3-1-4-1-5-9-2-6-5-3-5-8-9-7). Since Pi is infinite, I suppose I could try writing The Never-Ending Poem … but not today.

All In A Day’s Work

All In A Day's Work

A tangerine sphere
peeking through blinds paints the wall
with gentle brush strokes.

Sunrise to sunset,
reddish yellow and soft pink
complete the canvas.

Written for Day 1 of the Poetic Asides April PAD Challenge: write a beginning, an ending or both poem. After dealing with the lingering effects of a nasty flu, this is my first poem in over two weeks. Feels good to be back at the computer!
