Life Within the Abyss
Elsewhere in the abyss, a flower springs
forth amidst swirls of different colors.

Spirits of the Abyss
Having adapted themselves to the swirling motion,
two spectral beings inhabit the depths.

Anticipating the Abyss
From the farthest reaches of the universe,
this stone captured the image of what was to
become the Abyss, before the swirling began.
