up the chimney down

much can be observed
in the earthly realm
a walk in the forest reveals much
regarding the ancient ways

what is the source
behind all this beauty?
what energizes this scene?
why do electrons tirelessly orbit atoms
without sailing off
or crashing within?

where DOES all this mass get its energy?
(why does it ’cause’ gravity?)

in this time
the autumn of 2018 AD
this civilization knows how to split and fuse atoms

now riddle me this
why does over-unity energy get produced
regardless of whether atoms are divided or merged?

fission vs fusion
both are momentary windows
to the energies beneath the surface of matter
