The Mushroom Said to Me



the mushroom said to me
there is nowhere else to be
though our roots travel far
this is what we know
here is where we are
there is nowhere else to be

  7. Those mushrooms are so darling they should star in a Disney movie! And I love the light you caught in that last picture... nothing like compressing light between clouds and earth to make every ray seem all the more intense: fabulous!

  8. Perfect as always! How I love mushrooms - so many shapes and sizes and magical names! We have been on the look out for a fly agaric but sadly have only found an old withered one so far! Will keep looking!

    grace us with only a glimpse.

  16. Why are mushrooms so dang cute? And mushrooms in the first photograph are so delicate and precious looking--gorgeous, gorgeous rich color and detail.

    The second mushroom looks like a perfect little gnome home--again, the tones are rich and the texture delicious.

    Regarding your morning photograph . . . sigh, what an absolutely beautiful morning. I love the way you've framed all those lines--the flow and expansion . . . your morning space is larger than life!

  25. TL - very zen mushroom - living in the place and moment. Nature tends to be a bit like that - being the best in the time and place available. Bit of a role model for us. Love the macro shots - such delicate fungi. Thanks. B
