0 – 0 = ?

Zero minus zero.

If you have nothing, and then take it away, what is left?

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.

  1. If you have no apples and no apples are taken you still have no apples. To say I have nothing is simply linguistic. To possess nothing is not within the bounds reality. To have no possessions does not equate to possessing nothing.

    1. Thanks Jeremiah. Nice to meet you! You need to visit my blog more often. Then you would appreciate that I have an odd sense of humour and I enjoy playing with words. Linguistic indeed. Do come back and bring your sense of fun.

  2. You can have nothing, feel nothing, do nothing, eat nothing, say nothing, want nothing, give nothing,
    Nothing is better than rhubarb and custard. Yet I would rather have the rhubarb and custard.
