If hands could dance like butterflies in space...

I wrote today's poem in response to Christine Graves' prompt: "Magic Moments".

If

If

hands could dance like butterflies in space

and hearts could sing for all people to hear

if

we were meant to be something different

and share our laughter in any other ways,

would

-------------

we

notice the unique, deeper shades of life,

heed the peerless sound wave of love? Would

we

feel that we matter more than now

or just let go of our made-up fears?

-------------

Were we different, we would just dance.

What Is the Sepigram?

As you probably know by now, I am passionate about fractals. Earlier this year, I came up with the idea of inventing a poetry form inspired by Pi and them.

The Piku, a lovely poetry form, already exists. So, it was important to do something different. The result? The Sepigram!

The word is a portmanteau of “seven” + “pi” + “-gram” (‘something written’ or ‘drawing’). The “pi” part refers to the number π (3.14159 rounded up to 3.1416), which is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter.

The Sepigram is an unlimited poem that follows a “fractal” (or repetitive) pattern.
