molecules glisten in jewel-like symbols
photographs of tiny moments uncover images of abstract beauty
frozen only by an inert lens
a secret history pieced together
a wish / belief in the evolution of symbols into forms into life
and back again
a constant cycling through structures of increasing complexity and subtlety
simple mechanisms whose hearts are unknowable
which join together and give physicality to life
[in which, life is also the reason for this growth,
in circular forms without perceivable limit]
images returning to a formless state
[never quite getting there]
existing in a special region between 'nothing-at-all' and 'some thing'
the smallest measurement possible region: an expression of wonder
the strange joins between two atoms
that allow them to bond
as if the massively complex cells that they will eventually help form
are naturally implied, inevitable
in the simplest join between a carbon and oxygen atom
the consequential certainty of systems that support consciousness
