I wrote the first verse of this one day as a response to a mathematical poem my husband wrote. The rest is just something fun for Sunday.

*Squaring my shoulders*

* I admit you wrecked the angle of my heart.*

* I hadn’t factored in how prime you were*

* And our lives have intersected ever since.*

* It may not seem rational*

* But we do have many common factors*

* So it all adds up.*

*Then we went forth and multiplied.*

* Our children were a divergent series*

* and often diametrically opposed*

* but we felt they had some of our eccentricity.*

* No formula to raising children;*

* sometime you just have a hypothesis.*

* But the sum of it all was positive.*

*The probability was that we’d still be rational*

* (and it seems the parent functions still are)*

* although that may be a product of our imagination.*

* Thankfully, we’re not yet a null set*

* and the odds are in our favor*

* that we got most of the answers right.*

* Now the focus is back on the pair of us.*

Very clever

Thanks, Sandra.

So creative! Love it! 😀

Thanks, Sonel. I had a good time writing it. I pulled up a list of math words to give me ideas. 🙂

I wish we had poems like this in our schools :o)

Sorry, I can’t do it in French. 🙂 But I’m glad you liked it.

And we’re really holograms. And all equations are unequaled when we teach our little sums and daughters to drive, right?

Nice poem.

Shalom,

That comment leaves me a bit flat, Rochelle. Maybe the decreasing function of my brain has something to do with it. Perhaps I’m going in a negative direction or maybe the axis of the world has shifted. It just doesn’t seem to add up. The probability is that we’ll never know, but sometimes I do feel as though we’re in the matrix. 🙂

It’s all pi to me. I will have apple.

:-). Everyone has an angle.

Fun, Janet!

Thanks, Cathy. It was lots of fun to write.

I love the title of the post and the poem, a clever one, Janet! It took me a while to focus on “the pair of us”.

🙂 Glad you enjoyed it, Amy. I hope you’re enjoying your weekend as well.

TOTALLY EXCELLENT, Janet! – clever, witty and amusing. I hope he was as tickled by it as he should’ve been, that’s all I can say! 😀

He hasn’t seen it yet, M.R., but I’m sure he’ll like it. If not…. 🙂

janet

Ratsak. Obviously.

BRILLIANT… You are a classy lady!
