The Mandelbrot Set: Poetry

By: S. M. Noah


snow flakes falling on

red tree leaves ablaze

and dropping like pennies


for children to rack up

a collection in photographic

terms, seasons rushing for


children now grown, next

generation racking in new

negatives looking like their


parents, like written facsimilies

thus becoming a total of the

past, present and future in


the mandelbrot set in

the vastness of outer space in

the near tides and tilts of your eyes
