N#mbers

M ighty forces of concentration 
R eading the minds of those who
S uccumb, breathing realms of perplexity
. 
N egative, positive their difference and sum
I s it only I in contemplation? 
S quare-rooted mysteries and more to come 
R eady to confront word-“problems”
E ager, I sometimes feel so dumb
E ndless solving of no cessation, yet with you
N othing but a piece of Pi….yum! 

                                         Ode to a great teacher

    Hi Farah what a wonderful tribute to a teacher who is obviously very special - I thank you for your last comment and let me say I feel the same towards you - You live in a world we could never comprehend yet through the beauty of your soul you always seem to exclude all the violence that is no doubt a part of your life - i commend you on the beautiful person that you are - I find your faith to be a beacon of light - god Bless you Farah, YF4L, MJ

    I was always terrible with math and I'm going to assume Mrs. Nisreen was a math teacher ... great tribute and very clever use of the Acrostic form! Was glad to see your name again farah, with your welcome comments. Hope you and yours are well. When is your birth day/month ?... I'll send you a Birthday Blog ... smile ...

    I like your treasuring your teacher. So often the teacher is one willing to be forgotten. Good idea and good write, Farah

    I had a teacher that touched my life when I was younger.... I was a dyslexic child. She spent so much time with me, and now that I look back on it-- she probably changed the whole course of my life. If I hadn't learned to read, I would never be writing today! I will never forget her. And this poem is very brilliant and beautiful!! Best wishes, Sara:)
