“A fractal is a way of seeing infinity.” Benoit Mandelbrot

Recursive Wonders

In between all things is the between,
an unfurling of life that welcomes us to 
the un-straightened, wild cosmos
that curls and curves in kaleidoscopic,
recursive wonders, opening the door
to a dimension awaiting the eyes of 
our hearts with an invitation to see
within the patterns of our lives,
an infinite beauty of being.

  2. Audrey Driscoll was just discussing fractals on her blog and the topic of fractal poetry came up. I looked fractal poetry up on Google. While you haven’t matched their definition, you have found a way to make it work with this poem
    Great job! 🤓🤗

  8. ❤ ❤ ❤ you got a good grok on fractals. I love the image you chose. If that isn't a "kaleidoscope [of] recursive wonders" I don't know what is…
