Disasters, Delights and Other Detours - 45. Pi Day 2019

Jusr a little digital poem to mark the end of Pi Day, 3.14, 2019

Celebrate

Pi,

because you and

I

appreciate its

elegant irrationality

and prize

its practicality

for its beauties are

infinite...

Leave a calculated thought, rational or otherwise. I appreciate anything you say...

I agree with Val. It takes someone special to articulate the beauty of math so eloquently.

I don't see the beauty in math like you do, but I appreciate it much more than I ever did because of your poetry.  :)  

 

You made me smile. Thank you. Happy Pi Day...  you get another shot at it on Pi Approximation Day, 22/7 (July 22nd).

It’s kind of like appreciating the beauty of fine watches or machines, maybe. There is a delight in figuring out that it works. Or maybe I’m just full of it. Thanks very much.

Math has always been a difficult language to relate in English. 

 

I guess you would do well as a translator! :)

Awesome peom!  When life is a circle, Pi reminds us not only to enjoy its full circumference, but also to fathom and put its diameter into ratio, doesn`t it? 🙂

I do that in class every day. But sometimes I seem to garble the message. At least my students say so...
