Simple geometry

Farhad Zaltash
January 23, 2007

A square plus B square
Always equals C square --
Three nodes not always
Bound by a formula --
Willing to make room
For a fourth one to fix
The imbalance.

Four vertexes of a rectangle
Becoming a shy circle --
Pillars of strength giving
Way to the confined
Space of humility.

The shortest distance between
Two points -- a circle
Breaking in a half, stretching out
Its soul to the length of
Self confidence.

A line shrinking to a
Simple dot -- An ego
Dissolving into the
Beauty of the
Immortality of inner peace.
