Drabble: Over 55 Trillion Served

Over 55 Trillion Served

Only one seed in a thousand finds purchase in the planet’s overstressed soil, but there are billions dropping into the atmosphere, so it doesn’t so much matter. The millions that find a place burst into pspeudolife, rapidly securing nutrients and sunlight. Then they seek one another out, grow into one another, take shape from predetermined blueprints held in each “cell.”

Two tall trunks, quickly hardening into poles as strong as any steel.

A vast, red surface serving double roles of photosynthesis panel and screen.

Bright golden bioluminescent cells, shining into the light.

In the form of two great, sweeping arches.
