It’s a moon,
A wheel revolving on golden earth, and lotus blossoms.
Mountains embrace windmills, and it all reflects this number, pi.
Note: in addition to satisfying the 3-14-15 syllable rule required by the contest, counting the number of letters in each successive word of the poem reveals the first 22 digits of pi.
