Loving to Pieces, Autopoiesis

Loving to Pieces, Autopoiesis

Flash poetry (created and shared online in <10 minutes) inspired by an amazingly prolific and resilient researcher friend. I turned a research abstract into a poem on the fly for him. That’s me apparently: nerdy poems on the fly, no waiting. Isn’t life beautiful?

 

Loving to Pieces, Autopoiesis

emergence
resurgence
convergence

moving away
some days
from reduction mind-sets
to dance
with holist approaches

honoring context
squeezing self-organizing systems
loving to pieces, autopoiesis
misty-eyed chaotic systems
tickling multi-agent systems
blushing

running across the field
lighting up aspects and helpers
in understanding emergence

falling down laughing with stories
research and measures
bringing forth
emergent performance
flexibility
to greet agent organization
at your own dawn

researcher releasing
becoming
creator

coming
home

Our Home is a Poem

Our Home is a Poem

Happy National Poetry Month, day 6! Today I created a found-object poem. I took 20 snapshots of words and images around our home and made a poet out of them. Fun!

Our Home is a Poem

You are here
welcome
you rock
grab a beach bucket
an empty journal
or some art supplies

I am at the beach
alone
or chillin with my Gnomies
the birds
or the best husband ever
living the Yoda life
faces turned seaward
beneath a Scooby Doo moon

Guests you are welcome
so be at your ease
help yourselves to some booze
or make yourselves some tea

wabi your sabiĀ alone with a book
or check the tide chart
come join your collective self
down at the beach
