Autumnal Memories


image

Red ruby reminders
Everywhere,
Musty fungi,
Munchy forage.
Prickles & pickles,
Russets & possets,
Jellies & relish,
Rambles & tangles.
Sanguine serenade.

Fungi dawn


image

Fungi adore
An autumnal
Dawn,
As dew saturates
The forest floor;
Sunlight seeps sleekly
Through cracks
In the canopy:
Fragile fruits
Multiply frantically,
Thrusting through
Miles of mycota matrices.
Thousands of
Peeping forest
Faces;
Blackened
And tattered,
Inked with a
Stink;
Shiny,
Slimy;
Pale and
Spinal;
Hot and
Spotted;
Purple and
Mottled;
Thrilling pink
Gills which
Chillingly
Kill.

Fairy Staircase


image

Tiny delicate patter of feet,
Dance up and down the
Fairy staircase,
Stopping at imaginary doorways
To enter worlds of castles and
Crystal crested forests
in shades of grey and amethyst.
Onyx mists swirl, hiding sinister
Dark shadows.
