POPO2022 Day 27 — shelf fungus

card 27 shelf fungus resized

beware this kingdom
stacked with fungal furniture
mistake to partake

beware this kingdom
dispersed, affixed on stumps, trunks
sounding death’s trumpet

stacked furniture with
bioluminescent gills
lighting ghosthood’s way

mistake to partake
thick blood’s your best outcome
shun pretty poison

    The prettier they are the deadlier they may be.

    You really need to know your mushrooms to harvest them in the wild. (K)

      Cool! I would love to walk in the woods at night and see mushrooms/toadstools glowing. Imagining in the olden days they built faerie myths around them. A moth flitting by in the night shapeshifting…

        I saw pictures of them and yea…it’s so cool that nature does that.
        It’s the same with lightning bugs…I still get excited by them. You can’t top nature.
