Sunday musings

If life would have followed mathematics

Life would have been simple

One plus one would be two

and two plus two would be four

But in life one plus one

May be eleven

Or the answer may be zero

Or intedeterminate

All depends on what’s

Wanted from life

And what’s willing to be given up

Many a time

Need and want

Passion and profession

Belong to mutually exclusive clubs

Maybe, just maybe

Life still is a mathematical model

Built around a set of

Complex equations full of

Irrational numbers

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

  1. I venture to say “life” is not a formula. Thankfully. If so, there probably wouldn’t be need for both of you. I’d be saying “Take him, let me stay.” 😀 I’m just joking you.

    1. Thank you.
      Enjoy Memorial Day.
      I think this Memorial Day has a special significance. All those people who lost their lives due to Covid-19 and those who gave their lives to save people infected by Covid-19.

  2. 1 plus 1, I had learnt in Class 8, gives you 10.
    That was in my
    Do mathematics class.
    I believe in the geometric progressions of doing good, and breaking down complex equations into smaller manageable ones, and keeping life simple at all times.
    The entire universe is mathematics.
    Hope to learn from the Professor someday.
    Enjoyed the poem. Thanks.

    1. The universe may follow the rules of physics and mathematics and everything may be expressed as mathematical models. The day it happens in human life, humanity will lose something irreplaceable.
