Circles of Thought

The other night I was doodling a geometric design (a rare occurrence, believe me) and I discovered this lurking in the back of my mind...

If I find a thousand circles of thought-
six legged
hiding in my mind
are they bumblebees or ladybugs?
I color them fractal
a tangent will thrust
unexpected appendages
all over the graph
I maze them
with glee
among solid slices of pi

The forest
on the edge of spring is
A child
on the verge of waking
