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

Beautiful morning and, of course, mushrooms!

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!

Kelly said...

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!

How wonderful to feel the same sense of roots as the mushroom...

What gorgeous gold and blue colours in the last photo! Autumn on the cusp of summer.

What a beautiful morning it is! Such gorgeous light. And who would have thought a mushroom could be so wise!

Charlotte said...

Gorgeous, they can be the biggest living things on the planet, yet they
grace us with only a glimpse.

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!

Leovi said...

Beautiful colors and exquisite composition of forms, which have delicious results obtained with these mushrooms. This landscape has an impressive light.

The mushroom says, I am colorful, don't eat me.

Barry said...

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

Mushrooms and toadstools are so magical. I always delight in finding them nestled away whenever we go for walks. :) They make me smile. Enjoy the weekend!

In the vastness of your landscape you find the most fragile beauty. That sweeping sky is showcasing what is below, Tammie.

Clytie said...

I can never pass by a mushroom without stopping to take it's portrait. They have such personality!

It looks like Autumn is coming ... the light in the bottom photo is very fall-like and brooding. And beautiful.

Kelly said...

...gorgeous, Tammie. Seeing those dark clouds sweeping across the land must have been thrilling. Always so much energy around when the clouds turn dark...and the yellows seem to glow more!

Bella Sinclair said...
