Three point One Four (by Jim Shelp © 2015)

Things come in threes? Veto, things come in peripheries, Not necessarily of an Individual substance Or a rational nature …

Like Pi, Pi is Everywhere, Even in the Gravity That holds you close, And covers the Universe In a multiplicity …

Pi is in your Heart Beat, Your Thoughts … Pi is there, Universally, in a circle, All circles being similar… In a square …

Pi is there, unanimously, Something Of everything … Breaking out In Fields, in Waves, In Music, Letting the Harmonies Breathe, And things interact …

Pi is also Pious, Virtuous, And Honest … Independent of our doings It is stronger than Pinewood, Pliable to apply Ubiquitously …

A pi inch, foot, or mile A pi centimeter, meter, or kilometer … Squared, cubed, and such Or take six picas to make an inch A pi second or cycle, Or picohour … Pi times ten to the seventh seconds Approximately a year, Among things not visible … A measure of an immeasurable, Uncertainty, Paradoxical …

A spatial or temporal interval, A fractal, or fractured logic … Even the billionth digit of pi Being nine, Does not solve All its mysteries …

The peak of pi Is unforeseeable, Dreamlike … Pi is forever All around you Waiting to be discovered Waiting to be made useful Waiting to help, Waiting to be climbed …

Pi demands to be asked, Why pi? How precise? How come there is any pi at all? Why not nothing? Is pi an unknowable mystery? A periphery? A revelation? A song of songs?

Moonlight Girl (by Jim Shelp © 2014)

Moonlight flowers For my moonlight Love…

In hopes of Endless talks And endless quiet Walks…

Along the Worlds seas And warm sandy Shores…

A radiant flower That bloomed For me in years Long past… Now folded by Design or by random Chance…

Until the rain falls Until the high noon cries And the sun casts a shadow Over my eyes…

Moonlight flower Moonlight love In hopes of endless times And endless love.

She (by Jim Shelp © 2014)

She was encased “in the ice By the shuddering cold,” As Horace said in one Of his Odes

Her beauty was like hot Sweet wine and a cozy fire… Stronger than a waving wand Of flickering diamonds, silver, And gold She lived a glorious Life untold…

Too precious a thing To be buried in Books… The World would fall in Love with her With just one look…

An arbiter of Correctness And decency… She upheld a myrtle Of Faith, Freedom, And Liberty.

Quote

"Words seem to me so ambiguous, so vague, so easily misunderstood compare to genuine music, which fills the soul with things a thousand times better than words." ~Felix Mendelssohn

Quotes

“My whole being was seized by an indescribable happiness as I began to play the guitar, for its tone was deep and sweet in the bass notes, diaphanous and vibrant in the higher ones. And its accent, the soul of its voice was noble and persuasive. I forgot everything but the guitar…” ~ Andres Sergovia
