The Granularity of Existence

Crowsnest Highway, East of Hope, British Columbia, Canada
There is this granularity
To all existence
To things
To life

The fractal geometry
Of everything

Littler things
Make up little things
Little things
Make up bigger things
Bigger things
Make up big things

Quarks in a proton
Atoms in a raindrop
Cells in a body
Faces in a crowd
Lines on a map
Stars in the sky
Galaxies in space
Moments of infinity

All like
Colonies of lichen
Clinging to the granite
In a tumble of boulders
Fallen from a mountain

Lichen on Granite
Hope Slide
Crowsnest Highway
East of Hope
British Columbia, Canada
