Random Number

You’re right, 21 is simply

A random number in the

Quantam of life

Why pick this one

As something special?


Call it thirteen days

To the vernal

Equinox when all

The world stood still,

Before the axis turned


And day did equal

Night. We have lived

Beyond numbers, and

I am leaping to catch

Up with legrangian


And hamiltonian

Equations. This

I know: that space

Has expanded

Into time’s multiple


Dimensions and I

Revel in each

Coordinate change.

I’ll never understand

mX=F but the energy


In you is unconstrained.

Follow the music of waves

Sing of constants,

For you write with one

Hundred degrees of freedom


I’ll potter under the full

Moon the day before,

Rising early at the time

You were born to plant

A random twenty one


Seedlings in the morning

Sun. When your favourite

Cake is freshly baked

I’ll plant a few extra, just

At random, to celebrate.
