Transcending figures, forms, or flesh,
exceeding sets of points that mesh:
these gathered patterns propagate
in ways we barely calculate
the more we survey nature's arts
composing sums above their parts:
see symmetries surpassing shape,
geometries and math escape
the random matters some surmise
and archetypes most recognize
to permit purpose, deep design
to parse each premise we assign
inviolable beyond debate.
Behold, reflect, and fascinate,
revel in fractal beauties found
at every scale and all around.
