A Week in my Life

Courtesy of Marian ~ in The Garden
The tetractys was invented by Ray Stebbings, who says this about the form: “Euclid, the mathematician of classical times, considered the number series 1,2,3,4 to have mystical significance because its sum is 10, so he dignified it with a name of its own--Tetractys. The tetractys could be Britain’s answer to the haiku. Its challenge is to express a complete thought, profound or comic, witty or wise, within the narrow compass of twenty syllables.” 





How
Quickly
The days pass
Week after week
A Sunday kind of love, ready, set, go.

    Not very much a fan of Jazz but loved your quirky, short writing here above.
    Hope all is well from Sunday through Saturday at your place and that things are stable.
    Sending our love,
    Mariette & Pieter

  9. Counting and counting... perhaps a container for words to be used in poetry would be a helpful thing? Love this, Helen.

  12. It's so good when our ears can dance in tune
    to some playful
    tune written
    by you.
    Helen!
