An army of insects line the coveted leaves and a million lights rose from the steam. The tree's were few and memorable, they dragged up to the stars a beard of silver tentacles and hushed a curved canopy beneath the night.

A distant world, a memory wrapped in soft paper and hessian string, bound by the mysterious will of the mind.
