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

balancing.

.

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.
