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.

All Can'T Be Lost

All can’t be lost if doubt remains,
Since there is still some possibility
In the malleable tissue of thought.
Do we really live only in this world of death,

Burning Down The Highway

Burning down the highway at night
Don’t take that ride unless you’re ready
To go with it a while
To stay with it a while


Perfect storm,
You’ve come to strip me of my confused life.
Growing in secret between ice and wind,
Fallen by grace into this imperfect test,

Without Numbers

Moving left and right
Your body’s cloudy as the trees
Their shapes lost in the interesting morning
The mountain is no longer there.

In The Time Of The Twin

The horizon beckons urgently,
As love for you did once.
The sea and sky are close
As we were in our embraces,
