From William Markiewicz's Extracts of Existence1, a book of original aphorisms illustrated by the author.

Thus speaks the tree:

"I am a suspended meadow, a hand that earth extends to the sky. I am a bouquet the earth offers to the sun.

I am the living part of the landscape, witness to the place. I am the beginning and the end, a sense in myself. I am existence. If God exists, I am one."
