Tiny Realm of Lichen and Fungi


they call us pixie cups
we are tiny 
and live in the sylvan land


we grow in fanciful shapes


i have been enjoying the tiny realm of
fungi and lichen


they grow on trees
in wonderful colors


on rocks
even the black and gray speckles are lichen!

I look forward to getting to know them better

  15. No wonder they are called Pixie Cups! They look like they belong in the world of the fairies... but then again, I think maybe we DO live in the world of the fairies and we just forget to notice! Have a lovely holiday, Tammie!
