Evolution is when the simple becomes complex,
     and the complex into intricate;
yet the intricate to complex, reverting into simple,
     when fail the process to replicate.

Evolution is when an alga and a fungus join 
    as one organism - the lichen; 
coral a plant-animal union born in ancient seas,
    survival of both foe and friend.    

Evolution is forward and backward through time,
     simultaneous, spontaneous;
a explosion of diversity of all kinds imagined,
     in chains, webs, and continuous. 

Evolution is untrodden, unguided, by chance
     in a million possibilities beyond
the eye or lens, and probing mind and will,
     in the depth of sea, or just around. 

Evolution is de-volution, shrinking, thinning -
     extinction by nature and by man - 
plant-animal fusing, moneran-protist pooling;
     prelude to a living world gone. ~
