Zero Covers All


Zero Covers All (Acrostic)

Z-Zero Covers All
E-Entering the mathematical world so tall
R-Riding on one it takes ten to infinity
O-Obscure it is, without a number for intelligibility.

C-Creation started from zero
O-Obit is death which is signified by zero
V-Vacuity or void is a zero
E-Earth is oblate and is almost a zero
R-Radiant Sun is in the form of a zero
S-Sagacious Indian mind discovered zero.

A-A clear full moon is rotund, zero
L-Lack of things is indicated as a zero
L-Lastly it represents nothing and is denoted by a zero!

    Great idea Chandra, you know though in mathematics we not only started with 0 but it is the center of the integer...-1,0, +1...0 means a lot..0 has more than 0meaning it can be more than 1 too...because interpretation is wider now...and Zero really covers all :) _Soul (Report) Reply

    Your poem sets my mind wandering. Many things here to explore. For instance zero is the point
    at which time and eternity stand still (zero temperature)
    Zero is the absence of any measursble quantity. An idea that has been a reality for only modern man.
    A truly good poem that stimulates the mind. (Report) Reply

    Nice acrostic about zero. You must be keeping a good count to say emphatically that creation started at zero. Nice effort resulting in a beautiful poem. (Report) Reply

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
