*This week's ** prompt was the very mathematical** prove it. Here is my humble offering. I have written a few mathematical poetry before this. Here is another one!*

*........................................................*

*straight lines over curvesnever get on my nerves!*

Isn’t that so very pleasant?

as interesting as hyperbola!

with geometrical nuances!

is cakewalk for me, oh, dear!

how do I make a breakthrough?

The last stanza really did it for me! Love is unprovable sometimes!

ReplyDeleteJust wonderful, Gautami!

Love is a wild leap of faith off the power grid of the heart. Sometimes, you just have to trust in the equations.

ReplyDeleteRose

I have to agree with the two ladies above me, I love the last stanza and sometimes you do just have to trust in life. You did a good job with the "optional assignment" this week.

ReplyDeleteThis one made me smile. I like it. A breakthrough!:)Love-positive!?:)

ReplyDeletemade me smile

ReplyDelete(just about all the maths i know - much more and i'd be lost) :)

I like this - enthusiasm about math followed by confusion about love. A great juxtaposition!

ReplyDeleteYou seem to have much faith in the proof of life and love, I admire that. I liked this poem very much.

ReplyDeleteAlso thank you for reading mine and for you interesting comments.

love-bd

Very fun, and clever...nice work.

ReplyDeletei smoled at this one, too.

ReplyDeletegreat last stanza... love and maths may have something in common after all :)

gautami,

ReplyDeletethese are fun,

tho i'm not sure

they add up right(?)

/t.

Ditto! Fun to read, Gautami! Good job with the prompt.

ReplyDeleteSimple. With love you have to use foolean logic.

ReplyDeleteyep, that last stanza... :-)

ReplyDeleteThis was very fun. I really liked the way you used rhyme.

ReplyDeleteA box of chocolates?

ReplyDeleteThe differences between right and left brain. :)

ReplyDeletedancing algebra! Great fun!

ReplyDeleteVery cool! I love it, Gautami.

ReplyDeleteI'm stuck calculating "pi". Love it!!

ReplyDeleteI was only in 2-pi-r, could not make it to pi-r-square...

ReplyDeleteVery nice. I've noticed some changes in curves myself.

ReplyDeleteThanks for stopping by. Your visits and comments are always appreciated as are your contributions to PT.

Now there are some rhymes I never would have thought of! If I could have thought of algebra dancing back in high school, it would have made math class much more enjoyable.

ReplyDeleteA square root from a human life

ReplyDeleteequals earth warming

to the power of two?

Ps. Does this tough with River Yamuna?

Glad I'm not being tested on this or the meaning of these terms!!! This was fun!

ReplyDeleteThe deeper the love,

ReplyDeleteThe stronger the emotion,

The stronger the love,

The deeper the devotion.

Love you

Terrific response to this prompt.

ReplyDeleteEnjoyed the imaginative rhyming

and seeing words familiar to me.

(This artist also has taught math!)

Nice work, G!

Gautami,

ReplyDeleteThanks for stopping over and commenting.

This poem reminds me of my dad, he was constantly putting life in rhyme.

I agree, proving love is more difficult than proving math theorems. Good work!

regina: I liked your biological post too. Too good.

ReplyDeletedewyknickers: Yes. I suppose so.

clockworkchris: Thats exactly what I ask! Do I have to prove it?

borut: Thanks.welcome yet again. What took you so long?

floots: I don't believe it. You maths must have been be great! Just the way your poetry is.

twilightspider: Juxtaposition, yes!

beloved dreamer: How can not have faith on life and love? It is very much there. Even when we lose it...

poet with a day job: Thanks!

polona:They do! Structured poetry is all maths!

/t: yes, those add up right.

pepektheassasin: I like you name! Thanks!

puerileuwaite: Bolean or foolean, all the same!

:D

kindness: thanks.

Smooth read, despite what one would expect with the big scientific words and stuff. Nice take.

ReplyDeleteecm: Thanks. I liked yours too.

ReplyDeletepercival: So we do I get those?

crafty green poet: Algebra dances for me!

pat: pi is such a fun number.

amalendu: what about 4/3 pi r cube?

norma: curves become straight in poetry and the vice versa is true too!

desrt rat: well yes. My maths teacher never made those dance but I do for my pupils!

tikkis: Kind of yes! Thanks!

dennis: would you like to be tested?

whitesnake: One has to let go, sometimes! Thanks for this!

gel: Math is easy. I am yet to go to your post. Will do so now!

remimam: My dad taught us to love maths too. I am very grateful to him. Thanks!

I'm not a fan of rhyme, but you made it work for this assignment!

ReplyDeletewhen math starts to invade poetry, I'm out of my league! lol

ReplyDeleteVery fun! Love the line about nuances.

ReplyDeleteThanks for stopping by ny blog! You do have this one down! Ho hum, the concept of math does evade me! Wonderful presentation, melding left and right!

ReplyDeletePeace and giggles!

Thanks for the visit and for sharing your version of proof.

ReplyDeleteProving love does indeed appear to be mathematically impossible.

But is is linguistically provable either? Probably not.

thank you so much for visiting me... that was very sweet of you and your poetry is absolutely wonderful... you've managed to use so many mathematical terms in such a pleasing way... better than school any day.

ReplyDeleteGood grief--I LOVE this! Just love it, especially the last bit...

ReplyDeleteNovel

I love the way you integrate maths with love... two apparently diametrically opposite concepts.. I enjoyed reading this.

ReplyDeleterethabile: coming from you that is high praise. Thanks!

ReplyDeletedogfaceboy: I seldom rhyme but this worked for me too.

sage: I don't believe that!

writerwoman: It just king of formed...:D

giggles: thanks. I liked what you wrote too. Welcome!

sarala: I agree. Probably not!

ann: I loved maths in schoool, college and now I teach it. I find poetry akin to maths.

novel nymph: Thanks. Do keep dropping by!

natalie: Maths and poetry are not diametrically opposite at all. More in common than we realise...

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my math poem. I see you already know the answer to your own question - you have managed to combine math and life in a very clever way!

ReplyDeleteI miss my Algebra II days

ReplyDeletesigh..................

thanks for the comment!

Love this poem. I look forward to reading more!

pauline, there is no life without maths and vice versa.

ReplyDeletespazzmire, I am still loving algebra. I teach it!
