Equation (poem)

A gift of equation
Beyond mere numbers
Endings with values
Fraught with challenge
Giving proofs to ponder
Hallowed awe and wonder,
Infinite rewritings on chalkboard
Just in time for erasure
Knowing more beyond its dust,
Like ghost numbers on the floor
Mingling with tiles
Not of marble, but slate
Offering sure footing’s
Place to stand brave,
Quiet at erased solution,
Ready to write anew,
Satisfied by search’s
Translation into questions,
Unknowns and knowns,
With or without final answers,
X, Y or Z.


A-Z poem written in response to  Writing 201’s Day 2 prompting assignment—gift, acrostic, simile.
