Two Frogs Making Fractals: A New Discovery in the World of Mathematics  – A Haibun

Fractals are astonishing, intricate patterns you see in nature, like ferns, snowflakes, and coastlines. They’re also present in the branch-like structures of trees, the veins of leaves, and the shape of lightning bolts. But did you know that you can also find fractals in the world of computers? That’s right, two frogs made fractals on a computer, and you can, too!

In a world full of seemingly random shapes and patterns, it’s nice to know that some things are still predictable. So we were thrilled to see two frogs making fractals on a computer.

For those who don’t know, a fractal is a shape that can be divided into smaller parts, each of which is a scaled-down version of the whole. And these two frogs seem to be masters at making fractals.

We don’t know about you, but we find it pretty amazing that two frogs can create such beautiful patterns. So if you need us, we’ll be here admiring their handiwork.

The frogs sat before the computer, their eyes wide with anticipation. This was their moment of glory. Finally, they were going to create fractals!

The first frog hopped onto the keyboard and started clicking away. The second frog followed suit, and soon, they made beautiful patterns on the screen.

They worked for hours, never getting tired. The patterns they created were mesmerizing, and people worldwide came to see them.

The frogs were happy to share their work with everyone and continued making fractals until they cramped up from all the typing. It was a good thing they enjoyed it so much – because they would be doing it for a long time.

    1. Thank you! Hehe, I don’t think frogs can really do that. I had meant for it to be fiction. A haibun is a short story – either fictional or nonfiction – that includes a haiku or senryu.
