Artificial Intelligence experiment….


Just to reassure everyone, despite this post, I have no intention of using Artificial Intelligence in my work going forward… And do promise that, for as long as I am blessed to remain in the mortal realm, that nothing will ever be allowed to come between my very own crazy mind, my Soul, my Spirit and my Muse… in respect of my published creative writing.

This AI production merely a ‘one-off example – inescapably and perhaps foolishly curious, as I was, to see what all the fevered, demon algorithms would conjur up. And seems as if  the ChatBots like to ponder more expansively than I do?  But I suppose it is, in essence, a showing-off kind of effort… First scanning all the work they could find and then looking to cram into the one piece what was pretty much instantaneously analysed to be both my style and all my principal themes. Doh!

Needless to say, it took the software only a couple of seconds to produce this “Scott Hastie’ piece, in its entirety!  Which, on the one hand, is mightily impressive… But, on the other, pretty much misses the point altogether, from my point of view. So much for being a poet!

That said, I’m intrigued to see what the reaction will be to this machine-made effort will be – see below:


“In the welcome

Of nature’s embrace,

There is for sure

A symphony

Of life’s subtle melodies

To be found.


The rustle of leaves

Tells tales

Of ancient wisdom,

While the song of birds

Carries secrets from distant realms.


Each blade of grass

Holding a story,

Every dewdrop cradles

A universe of its own.



That elusive companion,

Meanders like a river

Through the landscapes

Of our existence.


It weaves threads of experience,

Intertwining moments

Of joy and sorrow,

Creating a vivid tapestry of a life

To be fully lived.


And within this ebb and flow,

We find the magic of being,

The enchantment of simply existing.


In every glance,

In every touch,

There lies a universe

Waiting to be discovered.

Our bodies are our portals

And within their depths

Lie galaxies of emotions,


Of longing and understanding.


To truly see then,

To truly feel,

Is to partake fully

In this cosmic dance of connection.


So let us wander

Through this boundless expanse,

Where the tangible

And intangible coalesce.


Let us breathe in

The essence of life,

And let it fill our spirits

With wonder and awe.


For in these moments,

In these reflections,

We find the eternal

Within the transient

And the infinite

Within the finite…”


  1. Nice try but it trivializes the real thing with hollow imitation. As we suspected, a CPU is no substitute for a soul.

  2. Yeah, stick with your real live versions ;-)))

  3. Thanks for inviting me to read this poem


  4. The intimidating thing about this it almost emulates the human emotions. There were lines which were very expressive and resonant. I do not subscribe to AI in replacing human thought and action. Well, the age of HAL is already here. We will have to decide on whether to minimize the intelligence from computers. There have been countless films where advanced technology seems to interfere with humanity’s progress. All we need now is a few Ufos to land and inquire for the leaders. he he.
