THIS. wow. i love how you made life this small tree sprout (instead of, you know, animals, a baby, a group of humans or a whole forest) - it's so small, and yet takes center stage. I love the look on the horsemen's faces - Death looks positively confounded and the rest are just like: "so, I'm supposed to kill it, right? why is it even here? how come, life is coming back?" or something. ^o^ also, that reminds me of the pandora's box story, with the little (lit up) tree being the tiny shred of hope left.
