The figure 8
Unbounded limit
Impinged on to physics
and mathematics

The figure 8
A snake like configuration
Without end, like
engaged in eating its own tail

The figure 8
Conjured by some
To be compatible with luck
and generosity

Mind boggling infinitas
Just unboundedness
Infinity!

  1. That's a nice take on the letter eight... You took it as both eight and infinity.

    I esp liked the second stanza:


    The figure 8
    A snake like configuration
    Without end, like
    engaged in eating its own tail

    LOL Sweeeet! :D

  8. Yeah many a way to look at it and go round and round, although really I think there is no such thing as infinity at my ground.

  10. Nice one. The tail eating serpent can be traced back to Egypt in 1600BC and can be found in most traditions. Deep and thoughtful piece :)
