Overnight, sapling dowel posts shoot up into timber-beam mast tree-trunks, crutches to prop, shoulder and take full brunt of elevated upright ascending aqueduct ramps, which rest, slide, climb, stack and scale upon balustrades, each player having to stay one step ahead of the other, just to keep up with the pace. Movably floating jetty pier bridge allows easy crossing from any end or side to another. High-pressure forcible propulsion grants liberated water-table newfound freedom to ride on backs of chutes. Torrential rainstorm downpour windfalls and offshoots, gone overboard, are never cast by wayside — because, grand-rapid cascades: freeze into unmeltable icicles; petrify into stalactites; granulate into crystals; ripen into precious metal ores; and evolve into ingots. Eventually becoming heavy enough to come loose and drop off, caught and retrieved by eager bracket fungi sieve drip tray pans, breaking their fall. Downstairs, in basement vaults, refridgerating pack-ice glaciæ mines are broken off by the lump. Overhead monorail cable-cars carry burning hailstone snowball and frozen ember spark products. Wafting air-borne unclearable misty cloud-formations (with aromatic perfume scented fragrance) veil from view steeple spire quest towards unattainable pinnacle summit peaks by gothic cathedral pagoda skyscrapers. In time with advancing march-of-progress, pylon rigs acquire and develop taste for stairs, handrails, balconies, verandas, mouse-holes, archways, window-boxes and hanging-gardens, underneath straw haystack thatched cupola-dome castellated turret-roof headgear.
