Carpet Geometry

THE GEOMETRY OF CARPETS

All work and no play

Is a distraction 

From the message

That was received

By Fibonacci 

Who zig zagged his way

Through the boredom and pain


With one eye on the hourglass

And the other on infinity

Not recognising discord

But hidden symmetry

Under our very feet

Opening up fresh perspectives

Of jigsaw repetition

Where the space speaks louder

Than the voice of completion

Allowing freedom of interpretation

Via the glyphs

Of balanced geometry

Only to lose direction.
