It's not a coincidence, it's not just happenstance

that nature makes a spiral shape when it wants to dance.

You can chart a golden ratio or open up a flower

the sacred geometry seems to have a secret power

to manifest anywhere we bother to look close enough

but when you break it down, it's really simple stuff.

Linear transformations with angles intersecting

repeated recursively create shapes interesting

and more often than not, with that spiral curve

so it's no surprise to me it fills up the natural world.

Simple rules mixed with complex constructions

Nature giving artists some basic instructions.
