Look at existence, and say what you see. The whole of the universe in all of its energy.
I see a tree. I see entropy.
A cold void expands. Radiation coalesces into matter, and matter cling together into planets and stars.
Branches reach out. Bleeding into the sky like a blotch of ink on cloth. It expands into the white. Emptiness stained with existence.
The expanding void, stretches across at all sides. In all ways. Matter expands with in it, expands to fill it. It must fill it. It will fill it.
An expression of the combined will of millions of cells. Individually, but codependent and mutually attracted, they break out as a single body. Cell, twig, branch, trunk.
Light passes through the leaves. The branches licking the horizon. The dust is crawling to the edges. The light, like star, fades as time passes.
Gravity. Planets roll closer to one another forming clusters. From a distance, they look like bright clouds contorting around one another.
Stars explode and collapse. Leaving ashen dust spraying to fill the space that the star could not. Dust collects together, before bursting out.
Leaves scatter, taken away by wind. The color fades away, and in death the limbs give way.
Degradation and collapse. Or is it growth and expansion?
Earth burned red. It burned green. Now it burns brown and grey.
It reaches out. Bleeding into the empty space that holds it. It takes what space it can. It does what it will.
Earth bursts out in radiation. Radiation walking on two feet.
A tree withstands the growth of its limbs by the growth of its roots.
Grow inward to grow upward.
Roots entangled. We grow outward, and into one another. A single body, bleeding into cold blackness that licks our skin.
