Exploding on the earthy canvas
Paper and Ink and Pigment
Exploring dimensional nuances
Phasing onto the X, Y, and Z-axes
Expanding the surface of awareness
From the Origin to Infinity and Back
Expounding on nature of Space
Imaginary, Illusory, Ephemeral
Extrapolating a point into Time
An Irrational Reversal of Phase
Exemplifying the Nature of Chaos
Temporally blind, in phase-space
Extraordinary like a butterfly-effect
Fluttering Moths at the boundary of heat.
Like a Butterfly, once a worm;
on mulberry leaves, it feeds, then moves on
into a cocoon of metamorphosis
Like a moth's attraction to light;
restful with wings spread wide, not in flight
but for basking in the warmth
The cocoon will untimely boil
The warmth will finally burn
The silk will pay for the keepers toil
The moth still awaits its turn
What cause for the butterfly's flutter?
What effect from the moths in fire?
The brush that dances, with staining ink
Chaotic Attractors, patiently plotting
imagined boundaries of arbitrary origin
leading up to the butterfly effect.
