One to one point six one repeated...

APRIL 18, 2010 7:28AM

One to one point six one repeated

stare at the centre of the shasta daisy, midwest muse,

or stellaa at the pillars of the parthenon.

whether by default or it's forgetfulness we stray,

the equation holds us together :

fibonacci and the Milky Way.

We're bound by something simple

as a spiral, out or in.

 Love it leave it,

walk away - the universe is indifferent.

Since we found mathematics

Nothing will ever be the same.

Here is where I love you / leave you :

here is where I write your name on the sand

and turning see the shell and in the shell that same equation :

1 to 1.61 repeated, forever. Drop the shell and a wave rolls in

and takes your name away.

Hold your hat tight to your head,

this will be a windy day ;

with your other hand, please take hold of mine.

Kim too. It occurred to me this morning that with Kim and now Steve gone, Open really is over. They were like the way back vehicle for me.

Lorianne  I loved Kim's poetry and this is my favorite,  we were writing in synch across the oceans and posted on the same day, his blew me away.  Thank you for coming by.

Thanks Jon,  the photo is his daughter's I know some aren't on FB so I wanted to share it.

Heron, Yes. and Yes.  Without Trig,  James, Kim it's all kinds of just memories of friends.. If I try to explain to people in the real world the pain of losing these people they kind of glaze over but that's ok.  We still have each other,  some find friends in the universe.  I appreciate the fact I can come here and post this and find the acceptance and friendship. xo

We talk more to people here than to most people in 3D, and in more depth. I certainly knew more about James Emmerling's life than about most people's that I know personally. And way more about a lot of online friends' feelings than people I know casually or even pretty well. Of course these people are important to us and of course their loss is a real loss.
