Steadfast

Steadfast

 

As summer’s arc bends,

pulling its vivid greens from the

fading forests

 

mushrooms appear, rushing across sphagnum

like the tide, 

 

whispering secrets in mycelium and spore,

rising under skies 

dark enough 

once more 

to hold stars.

 

Traveler, you are welcome here.

 

Bring along your deepest night, where

grows a thicket in the deeps. 

For within its rich and rippling web

glows a luminescent 

trail.

 

Traveler, this is the way.

 

Follow the bouys of sprouting caps, bright 

as the leaves that circle you.

Fall down gills and stems that bend with waves

to the earthen sea below

 

where sings the

song of untold currents

vast,

steadfast,

flooding your every rooted night

with the siren’s 

shimmer  

of your own unwavering

constellation.

 

Traveler, welcome home.
