One and the Other
Coerced by the efforts of sky and ocean, fragile, fractal tendrils of land have shattered to form a sea stack. Scoured of loam by the ever-transient wind and waters, its deepest stone exposed; but the place is far from barren. Every crevice and crack harbours life. It is a microcosm, a towering island with its own balance, much like the larger island from which it is formed, which in turn came from another. A cycle within a cycle, a place within a place, one within the other.
