Varnish

via Daily Prompt: Varnish

I don’t know how long the sign has been there, I’m guessing thirty years, but it could do with a clean and some fresh varnish. On the one hand I’d like to leave the lichen undisturbed, on the other hand, the sign is slowly disappearing and it is crucial to the trail directions. It represents the constant dilemma of balance in eco relationships. What is really so important that one life form must surrender to another? Maybe I’ll leave off the varnish.

  1. “What is really so important that one life form must surrender to another?” Because at the end of it all, one has to serve as someone’s lunch – a constant cycle of prey and predator.

    The lichen gets the tree; you get the sign. Seems even to me. don’t think everything or everyone should get everything. that’s not healthy either.
