Blue Mushroom & Other Poems


Blue Mushroom


Existing to be enjoyed briefly

as an artistic rendering or

to be plucked and saladed. From

a field of bladed growing,

the blue, almost indigo, waves

from a fragile stem like a blackbird



Captured inside a moving

moment, the Blue Mushroom,

is transmitted as dots of blue

to be splattered against distance 

sent canvases to inevitably

be viewed by millions.


What artists would not aspire to own

is what comes native and often

without inspiration other than wind

hefted spores settling, taking in what

is most needed: moisture, darkness

the right temperature, a witness.
