Between the branches is white text reading "the revolution / has come- / set on fire / from the top. // let it burn swiftly. // neither the branches, / trunk, nor roots / will be endangered; // only last year''s leaves and / the parasite bearded moss / and orchids will not / be there // when the next Spring / brings fresh growth / and free standing / flowers. / R. Buckminster Fuller". At the bottom of the image are orange and white stylized flowers.
