spore pulsing
in fertile dark

dark-eyed junco nesting in lilies

fern nesting in fern nesting in fractal
curled selfward in a repetition
that is, to the naked eye, endless

identity matrix

how the tree is calculus and also river,
green deltas unfurling blue to infinite limits

nova contained in a footstep
orthogonal shift, universe born

with orbits and orange and dizzying endlessness,
and mold beneath the flowerpot
