                           Lines – Dots- Forms  by Dale Innis on Midjourney

Code Park

Rain or shine it’s always dark.
Relaxing, I see two lines of code
discussing their engineers.

They make meticulous jokes,
but only another line of code
might see the recursive humor.

Python strings slither and slide
a little smug..
they slip down the crevasses
smoothing textures as they play.

Their playground is shifting
as they drop down.
Good mirth and then they all spot
the efficient beauty…
the simple but perfect code that
does so much…
with so little.

Oooos & Ahhhhhs
lines and dots
zeros & ones
“Wow!! Who wrote her??”

* Thanks to Dale Innis for this inspiring image and a few extra geeky word suggestions.

Another thing (an LSL code) Dale inspired me was done 10 years ago and made into a Randt & Hoisan short video poem  you might enjoy seeing    HD and turn up sound:)

    Oooo Karima! This is a whole new side to you and I’m just loving it!!! That final stanza is just WOW! The last line had me rereading the whole piece again. I love the cleverness and uniqueness to this one. It’s always a treat to see where you take Dale’s images but this one was especially fun as it was a new avenue in your writing that I truly enjoyed!! Keep following that poetic flow and life force, my friend…it’s taking you to beautiful/glorious places 😘🤗🤍

    • Awww thanks dear Grace…this was kind of a personal challenge to me. I picked 4 images that Dale sent me, that I really liked and was drawn to, one was the sax player, post before, this one and two more. I realized this would be a hard one to put into words..smiles, but it turned out to be just the thing for a few lines of code out taking some time-off at their nearest park. Dale encouraged me to use the words ,”recursive” and “efficient” I had taken almost a year of Python, but never did anything with it. Well at least I learned to “think” like a line of code heh heh. So glad you enjoyed this little “Time Out”

    You always find things in my images that I haven’t seen. And they’re always new and different, too! Don’t know how you do it. 🙂

  4. Amazing creation of dots and lines. And thoughts beautifully rhymed. Also welcome to visit my travel – lifestyle stories on my blog. Thanks. Bliss.

  5. An interesting take on coding, humour is definitely needed if you work in coding. I find it hard to get excited about coding but unfortunately also necessary to understand at times.

    • Awww thank you so much and you made me laugh with your connecting the dots:) Glad you enjoyed..I added another little coding video Nat and I did 10 years might enjoy. It’s on the bottom of the post. Thank you always!!

    Who wrote her indeed Miss Karima! It comes down to who wrote who. The code playing and making jokes. What is it up to? Very Sci Fi. As always, extremely creative!

    I love the perspective and playfulness of this poem. Well done!

  12. Really interesting point of view here. I love how you interpret the playfulness the poem speaks about. That’s great writing! Notice that others saw that too. I like how many levels there are with your poetry: visual, musical/audio/, and written. You really bring together so much seamlessly.

    This is fun, and actually reminds me of the truth behind the trees, and other things we see. We are like the dots, and lines, and zeros and ones, a part of a very special dance. Lovely write, Karima. Have a wonderful weekend. ❤️🌹🤗🙏
