Freshman - 1,505 Points (Thrissur/Vijayawada)

A CIRCLE AND A ZERO


Mistaken for each other
Taunt my mind for once
And I try to flee from them.

A circle has a unique face
And a zero has many.
The wise have ever proclaimed
As they have had to say something.

In a white paper, I draw a circle
But it looks like a zero.
When I attempt the latter,
The former fades away!

I run in a circle of odds
As many a zero chases me from behind.
I sleep under a circling wheel
And the nightmare of zeroes begins to haunt me.

Who are you both gentle images?
Why are you like twins identical?
May I ask you both just once?
What do you want to do with each other?

    Both look identical but very far away from each other. Beautiful and thoughtful poem. Something different. Loved reading it. (Report) Reply
