If Fractals Were Dactyls

Imagine fractals. Spawn of iterating quadratic functions. Choreographers of cosmic conjunctions. Impervious to all human dysfunctions. Makers of multiverses. Encoders of creations. Limited only by imaginations. Recursive. Coercive. Immensely immersive. Purveyors of poetic creative cursive ... Now imagine if … if fractals were dactyls they’d flow off the page, whirling and twirling, sublime. Freeing us, being us, thoughts disengage, teasing and pleasing with rhyme, reaping the rhythms of time … From mundane equations that yet yield complex repetitive patterns that please and perplex, come fractals so beautiful in all respects. Constructors of coastlines and snowflake concerns, foundries for forests, and feathers, and ferns, the deeper you dive they have more twists and turns. Generators of patterns, like veins in a leaf, and the branches of trees, shapes of every motif. Look around, everywhere, there are fractals, good grief! Let us face them. Embrace them. We’ll host history. Let us master them, plaster them, I guarantee: merge your mind into fractals, you’ll set your soul free ... Free to foster innovation, let us make a mass migration to a brave new world of freedom built beyond imagination, where we’ll boldly put the civil back in our civilization.

Thanks, Harry. Glad you liked it. Not everyone gets math or physics-themed poetry.
