Between earth and sky
we exist:
A thin veneer
as lichen on stone.

  1. Even so, I have always had a fondness for lichen. Brings the rocks closer to us.

      What I’m implying with the above is that all of life exists in a very thin layer upon the Earth, sandwiched between the mantle and outer space. Even our atmosphere can be compared to a thin sheet of gases covering the planet. In this way, I was trying to empathize the fragility of the ecosystem we require for life to exist. Mess with it too much and we’re gone.

      • Yes, and there is another dimension to it: lichen (along with bacteria) are what makes it possible for us to live here – they are the first thing to break down the rock so eventually soil is formed and plant can grow.

      But, I like lichen too. Very colourful stuff.
