Shaping Up


Shape Up

I tried shaping up the other day

I stretched and stretched

and flipped and flopped

to get rid of the muffin top.

After three hours of sweat and tears

I convinced myself

I could not keep up

because of all my years.

So instead I went to my drawing pad.

Painting is what makes me glad;

no point in being sad

As you can see I did shape up after all.

Geometry as Poetry


“Poetry is as precise a thing as Geometry.”
                                 -Gustave Flaubert
Geometry is necessary when you create art. The other necessity is creativeness and the willingness to make mistakes, ready to admit, you never knew or understood geometry that well in the first place. But everything we see is geometry, and poetry is life. Right?
Geometry man
