Order and Compassion

Pythagorus surmised
a theorem of patterns
defining life’s mysteries

Despite my abhorrence
for numbers, I concur that
there is order to the unknown

Guided by compassion
I walk that intrepid riddle
seek the enlightened path.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. I share your feeling on numbers, at least when I have to deal with them. And I think you’re right. There is a big of order to the chaos, or maybe that isn’t chaos at all then. Great job of weaving in history. I feel that is a bit of a poets job to teach the past as well as tie it to the future and the inner workings of humanity.

  2. I love that idea: a theorem of patterns /defining life’s mysteries. I do believe that there is a design that underlies the universe and connects us all to it. Math is but one language to capture hints of that. Art another. Poetry. You are versed in several of those languages, it appears.

  3. We are on the same page today! (very often) Literally. I also crossed over one of my other platforms (IG) and posted in on WordPress today.

    This image of contemplation and finding calm in the chaos has never been more needed. Thank you for this reminder VJ. Grateful for your poetry and imagery.
