Brilliant, but not Burnt
by Alison McKenzie
Gold threads driven,
Plunged deep into tissue,
But not torn;
But not burnt;
Seeping life’s essence
In all directions,
But not scattered;
Mended and stitched,
But not broken.
This is the strength
In a heart
Rendered in love;
For which the sheet music
Continues without end.
Author's Note: I've been working with fractals lately, and this one took about 3 hours to finish.

I like how the different opposites balance one another out. Another strong spiritual piece; excellently appropriate artwork also.

The coolest thing about your fractals is seeing how your artistic soul comes through in another medium besides poetry.

History repeats itself, nature reinvents itself, and nothing but attention to detail changes, which is where your heart explodes the myth :>)

Wow. I did the double imagery. I love the inspiration photo. I'll be interested to see the progression. Are you still editing?
