Doing the Math Mar4 by melodylowes And so we wait, Wind crunching numbers Multiplying grievance, dividing winter Days into fragmented ticks of a frozen clock. In addition, only the sum total counts; But the square root of snow Is a water molecule, And so we wait. Share this:FacebookEmailPinterestTwitterLinkedInTumblrLike this:Like Loading... Related
That’s right. This is just how it is today…but we aren’t all waiting patiently. 🙂
Oh dear – we aren’t, are we? The deep cold has us in its spell somehow. Although we are a bit of a grumbly race, at the best of times….
Very nice indeed.
Your north American math instead of maths always cracks me up! if you do the numbers, why don’t you do the maths?
And I get cracked up by my British book with the plural!! Isn’t that too funny. I don’t know. It’s one of those things, like pants – why a ‘pair’ of pants, for goodness’ sake?
I’m guessing because there are two legs? Except your pants are my trousers 😉
HA! Point taken. But – a shirt has two sleeves – why isn’t it a pair of shirts?? It seems that legs hold some sort of mysterious sway over arms. I say equal opportunity for the pluralists! 🙂
And here I thot that you loved to wait:)
*cringe, splutter* You caught me! hehe
My math tells me that there are 16 days till spring. Mother Nature better know that. LOL
I don’t like that math! My calendar is useless when it comes to adding things up properly. Ah, well. It can’t be THAT much longer now!!
Oh good grief, math–you know I can’t do it. I’m ambivalent about losing winter for some reason….
I am so not a mathematical mind! That makes this one even more fun. I am far from ambivalent- we have had record-breaking cold snap for weeks. -50s with the windchill is enough to make even the ambivalent actively angry…
Oh I understand how your “violent” weather would have you chomping at the bit for spring–and you well deserve all things spring. My situation is different–for one thing, our winter has been practically nonexistent.
I somehow don’t feel the sympathy for you that I should have….. 😉
Melody, I love your sense of humor despite the grueling winters you endure. Your words and picture are wonderful as always. It has been a tiresome season here on the coast too – moodier than even the most melancholic poet.

We have heard snippets about your dreary heavy snow out there – blech. But spring is coming – I’m COUNTING on it! 😉
Perhaps, since a water molecule is involved, you could do your counting with a clepsydra; drip drop, tick tock. 😀
My, my – you’re really on a roll! You must have had your wheaties this morning…. hehe
Oatmeal, oatmeal; that’s the power food. Actually, all things watery were very much on topic around here; we’ve just had a once in a century weather event; a big flood which did more damage to the already earthquake devastated parts of town. We were fine but other people were not.
Oh, no!! 😦 Floods make such a terrible mess. That’s so sad…
