The shape of things

pattern for sofa coverDesign by Melba

Have you ever wondered about the shape things take
why a square is a square
no matter where
why a circle is round
and so hard to bound
why a triangle
means three
and that’s not company
No matter what shape you like
or what shape you are in
it probably best
to be round
and able to spin
Geometry dictates
the theorems and postulates
which why we know
“If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, the opposite
sides are congruent.”
In life we are all shapes
somehow connected to each other
like the pieces of a puzzle
we must come together
so let us be complementary
or supplementary if you will
and the next time
you feel you are odd in shape
look around  you
because there is always
a space you can fill.
