Haiku My Heart Friday: A Celebration of Pi(e)

The life of pi is
the number they celebrate
today, March fourteenth.

Thanks to Facebook, I discovered that today is "pi day, an annual celebration commemorating the mathematical constant π (pi). Pi Day is observed on March 14 (or 3/14 in the month/day date format), since 3, 1, and 4 are the three most significant digits of π in the decimal form", according to Wikipedia.

I vaguely remember learning about pi in math class way back when.  I can't say I have given it any thought since then.  This is the only sort of pie I've had occasion to celebrate since then:

Cynthia! I love this post! and I want a slice of that pi/pie as well! And I love how it also fits in with my post as I use pi all the time to determine the size of parts of my labyrinths. Thank you so much for sharing this. I hope I remember it next year! :-)
