Into This Fractal Moment - Poem by Gil Raff

Into this fractal moment
I find myself again,
Having been here before
A chrysalis multiplied in mirrors
Reflecting itself in identities
Vastly changed by minute alterations,
So different that, if you hesitate one instant
You will be gone, evaporated.
Silent whisper of scales
Falling from the butterfly wings
Drifting weightless reflections
Of parallel selves,
Non-existent but potent inhabitants of dreams
Willing histories into being
Nonevents into events
Possibilities so yearned for, that, waking
We sleepwalk forward, seeking that moment
When chance will favor us
And we will wake anew.
