Poetry and science: Chaos

This is the second submission in our new poetry section.

We invite readers to submit their work in any European language.

Here is this week’s poem.


Ah, Chaos! ‘cross the globe you stir

Now grown so great from whence you were.

But was your birth from humble things

Stirred to life by butterfly wings

Or, spreading like a rippled pond

That leaves the centre far beyond

To reach the corners of the world,

Really just a pebble hurled?
