The camera didn't do it justice. It could not capture the Krynoid's speed, the scent of chlorophyll green. Green was the colour of peace, harmony, goodness. Plants did not rend, they did not destroy. Animals did that, red in tooth and claw.
It loomed above him, but he did not fear. Does a father fear his children? He opened his arms in welcome, in longing. In a green embrace, it encircled his mind; entangled, subsumed, consumed. At the end, there was no Self left to have fear.
He had forgotten that plants do destroy. They just do it more slowly.
