Fractal Thinking (Senryu)

fractal art wormhole

Bound by fractal  ties

An oubliette prisoner

Turbulent thinking


Fractal: A geometric pattern that is repeated at ever smaller scales to produce irregular shapes and surfaces that cannot be represented by classical geometry. Fractals are used especially in computer modeling of irregular patterns and structures in nature.

Sometimes I feel like I am in a fractal world, a maze or oubliette that goes round and round and never straightens out into a line with the door at the end.  Do you ever feel that way?

Senryu: same as Haiku structure but the theme is generally related to relationships or feelings while Haiku stresses nature

  1. Somewhat, but for different reasons. I have walked on many beaches, of stone and sand, and with each – there are patterns, rhythms and images that always catch my eye. More like ….. pathways. Beach of stones, beach of sand – all the same, except for a sense of ….. scale. But I never feel lost or imprisoned, and in fact, I usually feel a sense of gratitude!
