massive- taller than the tallest mountain,
inhabited by colonies of beings,
draped in vines, thick brushes
teeming with life, above a forest of geysers
whose small explosions envelop
the organic masterpiece in a dense mist.
A fortress housing the life
having fled from the season of
the burning geysers.
Its thick bark repels,
withstands the heat released
by the core of a beating planet
and absorbs the nutrients
from mineral formations
having spread in every direction
spewing the lifesblood of the planet
through coughs and chokes
amidst a planet
amidst a landscape that is alien.
