For POETS UNITED ~ Midweek Motif ~ Number 13 ~ Uncountable They Twinkle ~


Be it celestial or terrene 
from Azbine to  Phillipine
Life revolves around numbers
one to a dozen twelve to 13-

One means power and so does 3
but who decides this who knows
Hellen Dauphine Clementine or Spalpeen?
that lucky or unlucky is number 13?

be it coincidence or deliberate action
9+4 or 1/3 fraction, chaos or mess
12, traditionally signifies completeness
13 makes 'friggatriskaidekaphobia' and stress"

12 lines  on paper full moon in the sky
the day past, sun hot and high
no cloud nor wind nor storm nor rain
but a plane shot down 4+9 die in Ukraine

The Power is One and Only One
Who Created, countless numbers
uncountable they twinkle to show the Way
choose the Right Path Believe, the Stars, say"

  1. How did I miss this splendid play/meditation/ache on the number 13? I love how the changes within start in numerology and end in spiritual realities. Your use of rhyme here and in the newer poem I read above, is masterful and effective, not random and singsong. Thank you.
