Pi Poem?

Today’s prompt at The Poetry Park calls for a particular format, described by Susan Shoeffield as one that is  built around the root of Pi. Specifically, this one is called the Chronos, which equates to Pi2 or 9.8696. It’s an unrhymed, five-line poem with a syllable count per line of 9-8-6-9-6. 

Not so much into structured poems but it is fun to explore a new-for-me type of poem. Ironically, this Pi prompt follows a day of baking an actual pie. This is a once a year or two venture for me so the results are often unique, to say the least. I experimented with baking it in a casserole dish rather than the usual pie plate serving dish. Granted, the shape was not traditional but the taste was quite delicious. Here is the poem that I wrote for the Pi prompt.

2013 THANKSGIVING WEEKEND!

The years seem to fly by, with Thanksgiving being one of my all-time favourite weekends.

The autumn colours are usually in full swing, harvests are well under way and many of us gather to share the bounty of that harvest. Happy to share that my Harvest poem that I made with Wordle has been posted at Rare Republic, a local website.

Still on the harvest theme, today, I used the slow cooker to make a garlic vegetable soup with local produce. Yum!

In this region, Oktoberfest is being celebrated by the community and visitors from near and far.

Pot luck dinners seem to work best for busy families. This year, I will be bringing my version of coleslaw plus an actual homemade pumpkin pie!!!

It has been years since I have actually tackled making pie crust. Today’s turned out well, I think. The pumpkin pie filling is a combination of E.D. Smith product plus a couple of items in their recipe. I took a picture of the finished result as it may be a long time until I make another pie.
