NPM 2024 - Book Spine Poem 17

For National Poetry Month this year, I am perusing my bookshelves and building book spine poems.

I’m trying to love math
Marvelous math
  the numbers
   millions, billions, and trillions
    this plus that
Mesmerizing math
  when a line bends, a shape begins
   shapes, shapes, shapes
    seeing symmetry
Mystery math
  How many?
   Why Pi?
    Which one doesn’t belong?
Grasping mysteries
in the moment
learning to love math
