"Spiraling string fibers" by Cassie Kinney (poem)

Spiraling string fibers woven into dead space fabric--
Atoms form pathways of the textile landscape.

The branching of tree roots and its leaves--
The uncurling of the fern and home of honeybees.

All which express a mathematical symbol--
Where nature shrivels and unfolds from the middle.

The pineapple, the artichoke, the shell of the snail--
Are merely just patterns of an infinite tail.

Geometry of recurrence relation--
Describes the fractal dimension.

An embryo, our mind, our thoughts are connections--
Within a world amid chaos and complexions.
