Zero Covers All - Poem by chandra thiagarajan

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

    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
