The Fractal Pterodactyl

« on: November 28, 2013, 02:53:24 AM »

It's a little poem I wrote one day. It lacks meter, but it's kind of Dr. Seuss-esque.

"One Iteration"

What is it this universe wants me to be?
Just one iteration in an infinite sea?
One lonely iteration in a fractal universe.
One iteration in a place so diverse.

But one iteration can change the whole function.
One iteration can hold a large junction.
I may not hold much in a fractal so wide.
One tiny branch somewhere off to the side.

That one tiny branch may not be  that much.
A small group of changes lies in my life's clutch.
Just one iteration in a fractal so wide
One iteration feeling so small inside.

But that one iteration might hold up a tree
Of more iterations that may come to be
That's why this one iteration has things to do.
She's off to change places, the thing is, are you?

I'm a noob, mind you.
The furry, high-voltage, Portalicous fractal pterodactyl!

May a trochoid in the void bring you peace

Shall we say shadow
Or shall we say real?
What of my senses!
Or what do I feel?
Must I choose
One, the other to lose?
Or rather
Can I have both and extend things farther?
But then my logic is fractured
And all reason fails!
Or is it not Fractal,
And wind in my sails ?
Can I forego certainty
Completeness and all
For the wonder of beauty
The patterns that enthrall?

May a trochoid of ¥h¶h iteratively entrain your Logos Response transforming into iridescent fractals of orgasmic delight and joy, with kindness, peace and gratitude at all scales within your experience. I beg of you to enrich others as you have been enriched, in vorticose pulsations of extravagance!
