From Regret to Delight – A Mathematical Series Poem

The lesson and challenge over at dVerse Poets Pub Form for All today is to write a poem based on a mathematical series. I chose the counting series 1 to 5 and then in reverse for mys second stanza. I might come back later and write another based on another of the mathematical series Tony mentioned in his post.

From Regret to Delight

Regrets
avoided by
letting go pride
humbly loving and forgiving
making memories peaceful and sweet

Trusting God’s compassion and grace
humbly healing all hurts
revealing great truth
enveloped in
delight

    Pride is so hard to let go of, though, which is why some of us live with our regrets for so long. NIcely written, Linda
