Poetry Forms Easily Explained - a work of Bianca with additions by kansaspoet
|It is truly amazing what you can find on the poetry pages of Jan Haag. In a small note under one of her poems stood the description of the Archimedes' Pi:
I quote: “PI = 3.14286 -- Archimedes' estimate from the OED (1841), p. 813”
So the Pi according to Archimedes is built up in this way:
line 1: 3 words
line 2: 1 word
line 3: 4 words
line 4: 2 words
line 5: 8 words
line 6: 6 words.
Three colors blend
flowing over in one
forming the center of my brains, on paper,
a mindless image - worth countless words.
