Welcome to Verse First, where simple notions prompt amazing poems.
In simplest terms, a pattern is the repetition of particular objects, like dots, stripes or zig-zags, the cells of a honeycomb or ribs of a palm frond. Millions of patterns occur in nature. Think Fibonacci!
In humans and other animals, a pattern is an repetitive, predictable type of behavior. Habits develop from patterns, repeated.
Mathematics is sometimes called the science of patterns; and computer programming is based on reusable, repeatable lines of code - patterns.
A pattern can be a template or a guide used to recreate an existing item, like an architectural element, an item of clothing or a piece of furniture.
Patterns. Look around. Look inside. They're everywhere. Now write about one!
