I love watching them poke their heads above the ground
changing their location every year
making their appearance in so many different varieties.

Intriguing and delightful,
they put a smile on my face.

What are they?
Here’s a clue … it’s ‘that time of year’
when dampness and earth combine and make …

This year, two kinds appeared in my yard:
Shaggy Ink and Boletus
I thought of friends who are dealing with serious health issues
and are experiencing feelings of ‘dampness’ and loneliness

And then a poem by Munia Khan filtered through my thoughts:
“If you feel all damp and lonely like a mushroom, find the thick, creamy soup of joyfulness and just dive into it in order to make life tastier.”

If you are feeling “all damp and lonely like a mushroom”
from personal or political stresses,
may you “find the thick, creamy soup of joyfulness”  and then
may you “just dive into it in order to make life tastier.”
