Day #15 – the middle of things
The yin, the yang, spira mirabilis –
a divine proportion – a logarithm.
It ain’t religion that defines our lives,
it’s geometry, a chambered nautilus
that expands yet keeps its original shape
despite our every effort to break free
from the pattern. The middle keeps spreading
as the end fades to a new beginning.
We learn geometry and try to make it fit
the contours of our feeble existence.
