I made the fractal on June 14, 2022. The haiku was written by me yesterday, March 10, 2023.
Tomorrow morning at 2:00 AM we “spring forward.” That means, for those who use daylight saving time, it’s that time of year when we change our clocks forward one hour. Then, on November 5th of this year, we “fall back” by setting them back one hour. I really don’t know how I feel about daylight saving time. I could live with or without it. But in the end, I like having as much sunlight as possible.
When I get good news, the first thing I do is tell my husband. I also share the news with my mom and sister. Then, if I think other people might be interested, I post the news to Facebook and other social media sites, including blogs.
Here is a haiku I wrote today.
a few ducks lined up on a floating oak tree branch three turtles visit
temporary life fleeting moments flesh and blood spirit lives onward
I came up with a writing or poetry prompt yesterday, which inspired this poem today. The prompt is “temporary.” You may use it however you like. If you create anything with this prompt, I’d love to see it!
i was a wizard who had a spell-working wand in last night’s grim dream
i stepped on a toad and waved my magic baton – it came back to life
This is based on one of the dreams I had on July 23. In the dream, I was a wizard with a magic wand. I carried the wand on my back. I accidentally stepped on a toad and killed it. When I felt it, I lifted up my shoe to see the dead toad stuck to the bottom of it. I felt terrible and very saddened and sickened by what had happened. I pulled out my magic wand and moved it in circles above the toad while repeating, “Come back to life!” over and over again. The toad returned to life once more. I felt glad.
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.
