Friday Frills

There Are No Squares In Nature...

 Thinking about it, when have you ever seen the following? 

A square leaf 

A square fruit

A square tree 

A square raindrop

Coming to think of it, nature, unlike man, does not produce 

Square moons

Square suns

Square planets

Or square galaxies

 There are no square rainbows

Nor square flowers

Nor square minds

That could fit inside a square box

Yet more often than not, that’s exactly what we do. 

We try to put everything inside a box

We try to make all things black and white

Trying to fit a square peg into a round hole,

Attempting to conform to a standard of modern convention

 Since the dawn of man-made technology,

We have certainly lived in a world of squares: 

Square houses

Square buildings

Square computer screens 

We write on square papers set upon square tables.

We sleep on square beds and enter upon square doors.

 What has this shown us?

You shouldn't try to fit into something square, 

You are meant to shape your own life, your own way.

 The next time someone tries to place your creative soul inside a small box.

Kindly remind yourself: There are no square stars in the Universe.
