Math lovers, do you know what day it is? It's Pi Day, which we celebrate every year on March 14 because the date 3-14 matches the first three digits of pi, 3.14.
This year, I'm celebrating with poetry, combining my love of math with my love of language. Word Spy explains that a pi-ku is a haiku written about pi. Using the standard haiku formula of three lines with syllable counts of 5-7-5, I wrote this:
To understand pi
Is to understand constants
But what if you want your pi-ku to have a 3-1-4 syllable count that matches pi? Then you can write short, little pi-kus like the ones I've written here.
Which do you prefer? The 5-7-5 pi-ku or the 3-1-4 pi-kus? I challenge you to write a few and leave them in the comments below, or tweet them to @sassoftware on Twitter. You can also read more Pi Day posts from previous years.
