Pi (π)~by Paul F. Lenzi


 

 

Pi (π)

solomons-laver

King Solomon’s Molten Sea

elusive constant
irrational decimals
make transcendental
decipher of circles
ellipses and spheres
ancient Babylon
Egypt and Greece
fixed the ratio that
Solomon used for
his cast molten sea
holy lavabo serving
the priestly code
taught by leviticus

a function of unseen
perfections it still
figures prominent
set among theories of
modern mathematics
of science of logic
its sheer philosophical
mystery captivates
thinkers and artists
reminding us how
we can touch the
untouchable beauty
of hidden infinities
