I have been unable to visit or respond to comments these last several months.  But please know how grateful I am for your visits and kind words. I have felt it might be better to turn off comments since it is difficult for me to reply (and I don’t want to seem unappreciative!) but I’ve received questions about that and requests to leave them open. So, I will leave comments open and hope that you will understand how much I appreciate the words you leave for me even though I cannot always reply.  Thank you all for your kindness and encouragement. Your support for my creative efforts here has meant so very much to me.

MUSHROOMS

Overnight, very
Whitely, discreetly,
Very quietly

Our toes, our noses
Take hold on the loam,
Acquire the air.

Nobody sees us,
Stops us, betrays us;
The small grains make room.

Soft fists insist on
Heaving the needles,
The leafy bedding,

Even the paving.
Our hammers, our rams,
Earless and eyeless,

Perfectly voiceless,
Widen the crannies,
Shoulder through holes. We

Diet on water,
On crumbs of shadow,
Bland-mannered, asking

Little or nothing.
So many of us!
So many of us!

We are shelves, we are
Tables, we are meek,
We are edible,

Nudgers and shovers
In spite of ourselves.
Our kind multiplies:

We shall by morning
Inherit the earth.
Our foot’s in the door.

–Sylvia Plath

“Tink was not all bad:  or rather, she was all bad just now, but, on the other hand, sometimes she was all good.  Fairies have to be one thing or the other because being so small they unfortunately have room for one feeling only at a time. ” — J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan
