The Transcendental Number


Pi guides the moon and the stars.

It waits silently to be discovered

through the lens of a telescope.

It can't be written, or calculated.

The sharpest minds can never know it. 

Yet it's pre-existence gives us hope. 

Long ago Pi dashed all dreams 

of knowing anything exactly,

of knowing everything absolutely. 

Yet by finding it's mystery,

 we find in ourselves, 

a spark beyond mortality.

For how can we mere worms 

born from primordial mud

formed by survival's plight

comprehend with demonstrable proof

the movements of those heavenly bodies

that fly above us unseen at night.  

The End
