This poem "222" was initially created when I listened to one of my rock bands (Nightwish) song "Sleeping Sun". The line of lyric that caught my attention was: "...two hundred twenty two days of light will be desired by a night. A moment for the poet's play, until there's nothing left to say...".

Then I had to rework it into the 222nd poem of one of my poetry manuscripts.

222

Two hundred and twenty two
A three of twos
Three twos
Two Two Two

An ingenuous weird imprint
Of adept choice of acute pattern
Grossly impugned founded
Admixed in visual matching
Symbol in a language

Two in three places
Two before two after two
Twenty two tied to twenty two
The trinity of twos: twonity
