As a lifelong fan of number patterns, I have been looking forward to this day for quite a while. Yes, I even took a screen shot on my phone at 2:22. If I could have done something about that battery percentage, I would have. At least it’s (2 + 2/2)2 x (2 + 2/2) x 2.
Poetry is such a fine way to have a souvenir of a moment in time. Here’s what I wrote two-day:
of month two
of the year twenty twenty-two
falls on a Tuesday—
To tribute the fleeting beatitude
of this totally tubular today
stay tuned . . .
To celebrate, go beyond true:
put on a tutu over your tunic
tuck petunias into your hair
get out your tuning fork
and tune up your tuba
then toot a tune
hop on a tule elk
tooting all the way
to Tomales Bay
then continue by tuna
and be sure to take
for your tureen
to partake in tubers with turmeric
while you ride with that tuna
tooting your tuba
for the tune of twos
till it’s time to say
toodle-oo to this

Edited to add: I’m savoring the Twosday event a little longer by participating in Poetry Friday this week. Head over to The Miss Rumphius Effect blog for all the links and to learn about an intriguing poetry activity, well-executed : https://missrumphiuseffect.blogspot.com/2022/02/poetry-friday-is-here.html
Toot your tuba for a truly terrific poetic tune!
Thanks for coming over 2 my site 2 say so!
Loved your 2/22/22 poem. It made me smile.
Thank you! I’m glad 2 hear it.
Brilliant! I love your math equation for the battery level on your phone almost more than your poem!
It makes sense that I would have TWO offerings here. Thanks so much!
My two cents is it takes two to tango…and your totally tubular tribute to two is the perfect two-step. Brava! 🙂
Much grati2de 2 you for the terrific tip 2 to 2 hat in this comment!

Love “tuck a petunia in your hair” ! If that isn’t a sign of JOY, I don’t know what is! Here’s 2 U!
Thank you! I sure think so 2. I love the sound of the flower name “petunia”–I have a poem about them on my welcome page: karinfisher-golton.com
