Things Written in Math Class

Bits and pieces of poetry, stories, and complete randomness written in the margins of worksheets or on bits of scrap paper or post-it notes, hidden from teachers, treasured or awful, they have a home.

Skybound softwood

Sprouting, soaring,

One summer

She's sure to see

Above the sky's ceiling

Where silver stars

And sun's saffron rays

Spot the shades of saphire

Though in solitude

She stands

Stealing the life-supplying sun

From small, stunted seedlings

Whose span of life

Is severed

By her selfish, stretching limbs

Still, she's stunning

And we stare

At her symmetry

And wish ourselves

To be so sightly.

The End
