A Circle And A Zero - Poem by M.D DINESH NAIR

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?

    Very impressive work.The void of life with symbolism of zero is imbibed very nicely. (Report) Reply
