Interesting word ‘gravitino’ – a bit beyond my grasp, that kind of science.
The scene does look magical 🙂
Thank you, Jules. 😉
This is a simply wonderful. The format seems simple yet complex
Pi-ku is fun, as is Tau-ku, haiku, tanka, renga… some scientific terms baffle me though 🙂
Me too but I love the thrill of the chase, so to speak.
Always fun to learn new stuff! 🙂
Indeed, it is!😉
Haha… i even wonder how the names were coined or clipped or whatever 😄 Sounds hilarious 😂
The haiku, as well some of the others are Japanese forms of poetry. It’s interesting to learn about how the named originated. 😉
Yes, it is. Poetry is beautiful in its completely diverse forms. Amazing formats they are, I agree.
The history of launguage development is very interesting!! When I look up words it is fun to see archaic meanings.
Needa take that more closely and explore language history and development. This is interesting to know.
Thank you so much, Lamittan! 😊
Most welcome, dear Eugi. Always. 💖
Your images are always so vivid… my attempt at Piku poetry; here https://myforever.blog/2022/04/09/piku-poetry-inspired-by-eugenia/
Thank you, Myrna! 😉
Piku is a new form on me!
The Piku originated from Pi Day celebrated March 14th (3/14) around the world. Thus the 3/1/4 syllable count.
Thank you for the additional information, Eugi!
Most welcome, Liz!

Piku? How interesting, especially to a haikuist. 👍
Yes, the short and syllabic poetry forms are interesting and fun, IMO!
Eugi, you sent me to Wikipedia for a science lesson. An engaging Piku! <3
