Since my coming of age, some twenty years ago,
I have been tilling all the heavens overhead
and our mother earth below my feet, to explain –
how predestination can live in harmony
with free will, without cancelling each other out!
    

Then recently I saw the set from Mandelbrot –
ordered islands on an ocean of entropy,
an endless dance of zero and infinity
and I knew I have found what I was looking for –
predestined patterns comprised of endless freedom,
incomprehensible, viewed from an Euclidean plain,
for it’s a fractal to infinity and beyond,
made up of a finite set of laws and restraints!   
    

But the backbreaking work took its due toll on me,
depriving my thoughts from the bliss of ignorance
and the Euclidean curves, from my impassioned love!
    

Perhaps the end is nigh but I have no regrets;
a sun that rose at dawn, at dusk would have to set!

  1. Amit, I wanted to thank you personally for liking the post that Life of Mon reblogged “Please Help Our Momma” – https://protomarq.wordpress.com/2016/05/02/helpourmomma – it means the world to me that you took the time to read about my struggling family as we cope with our mom fighting third stage colon cancer. I would like to humbly ask if you might consider making a contribution to the cancer relief crowd funding campaign we made for her. Any little bit makes a HUGE difference to us. If not, please at least reblog our “Please Help Our Momma” post or share on social media. Here’s a link to the campaign page: https://igg.me/at/Hz9-ILFN2P0 Thanks again for your time and consideration!
