Tomorrow is Pi day (3.14). We were going to celebrate at school today with a smorgasbord of pies. Instead, we are all home, hoping that closing our school will help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. We received word last night, before I made the chocolate cream pie my family loves. I was still too filled with worry and the stress of the week to bake last night. I may make it later this afternoon. After all, a piece of pie seems like a reasonable way to soothe the soul.
We were also going to write Pi poems with the kids today, so I went ahead and wrote one that I hope I will be able to share with them soon.
topped with dollops
whipped cream; nestled in
a crust of chocolaty crumbs. Divine.
Be well, my friends.
Please be sure to visit Matt Forrest Esenwine at Radio, Rhythm, and Rhyme for the Poetry Friday Roundup.
Here are other Pi day poems I’ve written over the last few years:
