The abandoned playground
I've lost touch with the immediate this past week. I see that time is beginning to reveal and expose what we hoped would be revealed. At the moment I'm content to sit amidst the petrified, listen and watch.
Time passes and you remain buried with the rotting logs of the forest. The ground is now saturated with water containing dissolved silicon and oxygen, or silica, from the overlying ash. This silica is present in molecular form, as any submicroscopic particles which are carried down by water through the ash toward the buried forest. One by ones the molecules of silica replace the molecules of the wood, turning wood to solid silica, solid quartz, solid stone.
