Rectangle: A Poem

Updated on July 6, 2014


If I was a rectangle,

I'd widen all my borders,

To form cozy, hidden corners,

My straight lines would be pillars of strength,

Locked together, housing secret angles above and beneath.


If I was a rectangle,

I would stand on principles that none could erase,

Overflowing with feeling, but only given a cold and empty face,

Unflexible and rigid, like a statue I'd stand,

A loving soul, yet without a tender, reaching hand.

      Ebower, this is such a creative idea, I love it! Write as a circle or a triangle next time, I'd like to see what you do with it :-)

      Erin, great poem - thinking outside the box about something the shape of a box :o), I loved the widening borders to make cozy corners lines, really good.

      Intriguing imagination I have never seen before Ebower!

      Hat's off! Love the way you have given such a powerful and strong character to a geometrical figure and written flawless verse!

      "Unflexible and rigid, like a statue I'd stand,

      A loving soul, yet without a tender, reaching hand."

      The irony in the last line is... just.. great!
