Desert Mushroom (Podaxis pistillaris)   Leave a comment

Desert Mushroom (Podaxis pistillaris)-72Desert Mushroom (Podaxis pistillaris) — Image by kenne

This is probably the most common mushroom in the Sonoran Desert. It is found in desert environments worldwide. The fruiting body appears above the ground upon a woody stem within a few days after a soaking rain usually during the cooler seasons. It is fibrous and woody and the cap remains closed down around the gills and spores, presumably to protect them from extreme dry periods. (arizonensis.org)

Poetry is one of the ancient arts,
and it began as did all the fine arts,
within the original wilderness of the earth.

The greatest achievement was
at first and for a time a dream.
The oaks sleeps in the acorn;
the bird waits in the egg;
and in the highest vision
of the soul a waking angel stirs.
Dreams are the seedlings of realities.

— James Allen

Mushroom Transportation

A pinch of color
in a morning 
of black and white
beginning to glow
as if a light emerging 
from the dark earth.

On Top

All this new stuff goes on top
turn it over, turn it over
wait and water down
from the dark bottom
turn it inside out
let it spread through
Sift down even.
Watch it sprout.

A mind like compost.

Magic Mushroom On Mt. Lemmon   Leave a comment

Aspen Draw August 2013Magic Mushroom On Mt. Lemmon — Computer Art by kenne

I went on this magical trip… 
Out of reality, in a fantasy world, 
Everything seemed to be so peaceful and perfect! 
All harmony… no hate…

I soon realized I got to see the raw truth of reality, 
but from a different point of view, 
of contrasts and with no metaphors nor euphemisms.

Brother, you are gone,
that which was earth
gone back to earth,
that which was human
scattered like rain
into the darkened
wild eyes of herbs.

A mushroom
alone 
burrows out 
of the ground
pine nettles
hang from its
head
entering a new
world
out of darkness
into the
light of day.

Fly Agaric Mushroom — The Elf Of Plants   1 comment

The Mushroom is the Elf of Plants –
 

At Evening, it is not
At Morning, in a Truffled Hut
It stopopon a Spot

As if it tarried always
And yet it’s whole Career
Is shorter than a Snake’s Delay –
And fleeter than a Tare –

’Tis Vegetation’s Juggler –
The Germ of Alibi –
Doth like a Bubble antedate
And like a Bubble, hie –

I feel as if the Grass was pleased
To have it intermit –
This surreptitious Scion
Of Summer’s circumspect.

Had Nature any supple Face
Or could she one contemn –
Had Nature an Apostate –
That Mushroom – it is Him!

— Emily Dickinson
