Cool humidity washes over the morning. It fades the hilltop backdrops to vague misted cliffs, to shapes of faraway things, like islands, like many dome-topped islands.
In this muted sea I swim, along the root knotted lanes, dreaming, discovering.
This bobble-eyed tree is a land octopus: Plantae Cephalopoda Gigantis. This fungus is dark as a smoker's lung. Birds dart, as fish do, flashing colours. This Squid Tree is diving.
Sun deepens its reach, presses warmth, retreats behind a fine foam of cloud.
Discovering, dreaming, in these root knotted lanes:
The universe stretches from here, to back here again.
