A Pi-ku

Written for:  Carpe Diem Tokubetsudesu #73, Pi-ku – another nice poetry form (reprise)
This week I love to challenge you to write a so called “pi-ku” as a kind of tribute to “Pi-day” which was on March 14. Why is this day called “Pi-day”? Because of the numbers of this date 3.14, which is the value of “Pi”.

Let us try to make a Pi-ku with the above digits in red (3,14159) the lines of the Pi-ku and the syllables-count would become the following:

1st line 3 syllables; 2nd line 1 syllable; 3rd line 4 syllables; 4th line 1 syllable; 5th line 5 syllables and the 6th line would be 9 syllables. 

the sun sets
the evening breeze
your arms in blue light,
as dark descends wishing sun good night
