3D Genetic Algorithms - Abstract Nº63

How many a budding plant is born to fade!
How many a May bloom wilt with quick decay!
Ofttimes the ruddiest rose holds briefest sway,
While heart and sense are evermore betrayed
Alike in nature's shine and nature's shade.
Vainly earth-tendered seeds have sought the day,
And countless threads of rivulets wind astray,
For one that joins the vast main unembayed.
O prodigal nature, why this spendthrift waste
Of light, strength, beauty given to earth or man?
Thy richest realm may lie in trackless seas,
Thy tenderest loves, perchance, die unembraced;
While faith and reason watch thy wildering plan,
The baffled soul's cloud-compassed Hyades!

Paul Hamilton Hayne, "Waste".

... And a late addition, a funny version of Deb's desert :-)

I started trying to guess what could it be, but the long list of evil made me quit already.

Deb said...

Gorgeous colors! It looks like a desert scene, complete with a rare cactus plant set against a beautiful sunset. (Of course I'm ignoring the water, LOL, but it's my fantasy. Nice work :-)

So there you have my version of your funky desert. :-D Added to the post.

...another of your alien life forms, but more evolved. This one has gone to seed. It's seed pods look like basket balls.

Deb said...

Oh I like the funky version. :-D

Will, this plant was nurtured by Dennis Rodman, that's why the plant and the scenery looks like this.

But, Deb, the funky version of every single thing is always the best! :-)
